Magnatone Estey Model 432 Starlite w True Vibrato in Portland for $400

These little 432 are extremely cool Magnatones - they have BOTH the Pitch Shifting Vibrato and tube Tremolo circuit - and they have Tube Reverb - all into a 12 inch speaker in a nice compact 20 x 22 x 10 inch package. What's not to love?! Oh, well they do use a slightly rare ELL80 power tube (about 12 watts) but the tubes last a long time in these babies. Magnatones are extrenmely well built amps. This amp cost $200 bucks brand new back in 1966!

I have a really cool and unique sounding '60s Estey Magnatone amp. Single 12" Speaker. It is all in good shape, I had it gone over and the power plug replaced with a grounded one by Brian Sours. Being a '60s tube amp it's not the quietest amp in the world, but it's what you'd expect. The reverb, trem and vibrato all work, and I believe the footswitch outs work as well, but I don't have a footswitch to try them. The three inputs all provide their own cool character, and allow you to go from a clean vibrato spaghetti western tone all the way to way loud raunchy overdrive. It is about 12 watts, and I would say in the same power range as a Blues Junior. Let me know if you want to try it out.

  1. Hey, have you sold it already? (I'm sure you have, but the listing is still here.) Michel


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.
