It is a 300... If it were a sig, the Joule meter would be almost maxed out to the right. Offer 600 bucks. The amp is almost 20 years old now, and may be in need of some level of service to freshen it up.

Good eye, NooshinJohn! :)

And I'm pretty sure the 600x2 has a 15 amp line fuse, not a 10 amp fuse like the one in these pics.
