1960 Old Craftsman 3 pickup electric and Kay tube amp in LA area for $600






This triple pickup Kay Value Leader is badged an Old Kraftsman - that was their Speigel catalog line - and the amp is similar to a Kay 507 twin Special but with a 15 inch speaker, and a pair of 6V6 and some 12AX7 and 5Y3 tubes - this should be a pretty cool honkin, raucous, down and dirty vintage Chicago blues rig. He says the amp isn't working but unless it's been dropped off a bus or in a mojor flood it shouldn't take all that much to get it back up to speed. But don't hold me to that.

(The first three digits of the speaker number are the manufacturer's code, the next three are: last digit of year, week of year. So, 028 is 28th week of '60 ....)
