Lectrolab S-400 in Seattle for $200

Hey Lookie here!! Another Lectrolab S-400...and I thought I had the only one. Very rare little amp - Single El84 output tube and tremolo circuit - gives a neat Vox AC10 type tone - I play mine at full volume and it is a nice recording amp - sounds different than any of my Fender amps - nothing like a Champ really. Records well.

Note: Mine has a pair of Alnico 8 inch speakers and htis one looks like it has a ceramic pair - so this one might be a bit louder than mine.

This original tube amp is old but looks great for its age it works good (but needs to be updated). it haze two 8" speakers it is a great amp to practice. I have no idea what the watts output is I would guss about 10-15 watts. I play bass so i dont need it to play. It was a fun to have some thing so rare. I looked to find out info on it for years and there was nothing about it or the guys who made it till a cuple years ago someone worte an article on it from the website My Rare Guitars I will put a link up so you can read it. it was the first amp i ever owned so i love it and dont like to sale it at all but i need the rent money. I need to be Firm on price. You can call 206-313-9966

Pemier Tube amp in Boise ID - just sold for $50

Yeah - this one went so fast I couldn't even post it before it sold - but check out this litlle sweetie - Premier Chicago made amp. This is either a Model 110 or a Model 120 - depending on if it has a 10 inch or 12 inch speaker. Premiers used a variety of circuit designs - sometimes with a single 6L6 and sometimes with a pair of 6V6 power tubes. No matter what the tube layout it is usually a harp players dream combo amp. Premier amps are just voiced beautifully for the blues harp.

I'm looking to sell a vintage guitar I've had around for a while. A family member purchased it in the 70's and it's been in the family ever since. Though the paint has taken a few scratches and nicks, the body itself is in excellent condition (although a bit dusty). It hasn't been played in quite some time and could probably use a string replacement.

With a few paint touch-ups it would be good as new. It's a perfect guitar for a learner.

I'm asking for $30 - or best offer.

Peavey Mace 160 watt 6L6GC tube guitar amp - $200 (NWSA)

Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]


Hi there,

I have an original Peavey Mace 2X12 160 watt guitar amp. This is a mid 70's mace and is not the VTX version. This one has tremolo and reverb. It is fully working and sounds fantastic. If you've ever wanted to pretend like your bedroom was a NASA blastpad, this amp will help you do that with 6 6L6GC power tubes producing 160 watts. Amp looks pretty good too. 200 bucks and you can take it home and play Sweet Home Alabama until your ears fall off.

I am looking to trade it for a smaller tube amp. I would trade for a Peavey Classic 30, 50, 100, Delta Blues, Fender HRD, almost any vintage amp or any other tube amp that tickles my fancy. I would also consider taking cash for it, but really could use a smaller tube amp. I acutally prefer heads to combos, but whatever, let me know what you have.
One other thing. I am not afraid to trade for an amp that is not working as long as it is an amp that would be worth the trouble to have fixed.

1983 Gibson Flying V in Oxnard CA for $600

Here is a nice looking Flying V - 26 years old and it's a rather unusual Cream color. I think this is the "Flying V 83" model because it has no pickguard and the straight tailpiece instead of the Brass V shaped type. these were lower end models but still nicely made by Gibson in the USA. Sounds like it needs minor fret work.

I'm selling a 1983 Gibson Flying V. 2 humbucker pickups, 3 Way switch, 2 Volume knobs and a tone knob, dot inlays, awesome looking guitar. Also included is the guitar case which is pretty nice itself. Hard black case with white fur interior keeps the guitar clean and safe.

Body has some minor damage/ cracks in the paint but nothing bad. Some fret buzz on the E string, might need a fret filed down. Case has a combination lock on the side that hasn't worked since I got it but it still latches.

Looking up this model online gave the value at 700-950 depending on the condition but I'm just trying to get rid of it and it has the fret buzz so I figured 600 or best offer. It's a really cool guitar, still works great and sounds great. A good purchase for any guitar lover.

Squier Tele Custom in Sherman Oaks for $125

I have played these Squier Tele Customs side by side with the Fender 72 Deluxe RI and strange as it sounds... I like the Squier betetr. They are lighter, don't have a contour cutaway onthe back and the pickups have more bite and clarity for modern playing styles. The Fender 72 Deluxe RI has the Fender "Fullrange" humbucker based on an old Seth Lover design but the versions I've heard are too full range for modern guitar styles - they end up sounding dull and farty (to my ears). Of course a real 70's Tele Deluxe is a different animal but for $125 this little Squier is a nice playing axe. Note: There is another version of this guitar for sale called a Custom II which has a pair of P90's - this one has the chrome humbuckers.

Ventura Bruno Model V15, 12 string acoustic guitar with cedar neck, been repair but plays perfectly. Comes with case! From mid to late 70's. Sounds beautiful! This guitar is praised by many people for the sound. It is claimed that these guitars sound better than the expensive ones. A must hear! Strings are very old it can probably use new strings. Body is beautiful.
Comes with case!

Almuco Tube combo amp in Boston Area for $150

I've been scoping ams for years and I have NEVER seen one of these. Check out that circuit - cripes - it's about five resisters clipped to three tubes - amazing. And this was "Made in the USA" (check the front right side of the chassis).

I don't know if it is worht $150.. but it sure is funky.

i have had this old amp for years and i still have not bothered to do anything with it.

as far as i can tell, it still works but needs a new power tube.

the right most tube does not glow, but the other 2 do.

i know nothing more about it than that.


i found an old tube that was the right size, plugged it into the amp and it works!! the volume pot is dirty, but the amp works well, and the speaker is in fine shape.


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
