A-ha... Bayern (Bavaria) is a state in Germany. The transformers in the amp have a distinct "GDR" type of look to them. Bavaria was located in West Germany, technically, but it bordered the communist GDR and some villages were actually split between the two countries at the time.
The amp has a decidedly UN-western look to it in terms of the meticulousness of its construction... however the Philips caps are definitely a Western thing, but the transformers and the green look to be from the East.
Interesting thing... probably indeed of Bavarian or Eastern European origin.
