It is laser engraved, sandpaper and elbow grease will likely get it off, but it won't be pretty.

It's a copy of the Amperex Bugle Boy Logo (do an image search). In some world it makes sense that an amp with tubes uses this even if it doesn't have tubes made by Amperex or even types of tubes made by Amperex, but not in this one. And if you could find a new Amperex tube with this logo on it, like a 6DJ8, it would probably cost more than this entire amplifier. Whoever found the circuit for this amp also went and found some artwork at the same time. Respect--.
I agree it looks stupid on this amp, but there's some context for you.

A stolen logo? How's that respectable?

Ah, didn't catch that in this context. I think we are on the same page then.
