Magnatone 280 in New Hampshire for $695

The Model 280 is basically the Holy Grail of Magnatone's because it was the amp Buddy Holly used on Peggy Sue and several other hits. In fact George Gruhn is selling the 1958 Magnatone 280 that belonged to Buddy Holly for $175K... yes, that is correct, I said $175,000.

Makes this all original working Maggie 280 seems like quite a deal at $695 - even if it does need some cosmetic restoration.

Hello Friends of Tone,

I have for your consideration a Magnatone 280 High Fidelity Musical Instrument Amplifier. Two twelve inch speakers and 45 Watts. True Vibrato, also in Stereo Mode.
Cosmetics are a six. The amplifier is very original and fully functional. I haven't made any component replacements. Thought I would offer the amplifier for Sale.
If there isn't a Buyer, then I will Restore the unit for my own personal use.

Thanks for your time

I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


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.
