It has nothing to do with quality. I have numerous carver amps and pre amps. I just want the 1065 lol. It looks cool, and I don't think there are many of them out there, so I just want this piece of history, whether good or bad.

Well, yeah, exactly.

Low proifile, and sporting the carver look, it's a work of art looks wise. As for sound quality, many out there won't even consider Carver at all lol.

Found one.
It all works except for the power switch was stuck on. I fiddled with it and cleaned it with avionics cleaner, and now it works like a champ mechanically, but not electrically. It turns on when fully depressed, but turns off when switch relaxes in the on position.
Otherwise it looks very well made.

BTW, Does anyone know where I can find one of those switches, or is there a trick to getting it's function back?
I know it's common to this particular model.

Also, it's made in Taiwan ROC, which is contrary to what we thought. The wiring does look much like my 6CB and 15 CBs.
