I'm trying to find the year of my Kustom K100-1 but am coming up with nothing. Its a K100-1 50 watt with the 2 12 cab the nameplate on the cab has the by Ross INC so I know its an early model. The serial number is 22391. I cant find anything about what year it is and was hoping you guys that know more about Kustom amps could tell me. The plate on the back of the amp does not have the by Ross INC.

Thanks Another question what speakers are in the cab are they name brand or just run of the mill cheap speakers?

Seing as it's a 68 model the speakers should be Jensen, but could be CTS brand also if they have Aluminum voice coil covers.

The speakers if original are 16 ohms wired for the 8 ohm load that the amp wants to see to output its full 50 watts of clean power.

What speakers should I use to replace the stock speakers? I'm thinking Eminince sp? but am open to suggestions because I figure the stockers are the low end Jensens ceramic magnets and the like.
