ELK vintage tube head and cabinet in Orlando FL for $275

These ELK's are high quality vintage Fender copies made in Japan in the 1950's and 1960's.  They have a dogged following and usually the ones that have survived this long are serious keepers.   These used better components and overall construction than most of the Japanese amps of the period - they were made to be used by pro players in Japan but they occasionally also found their way to Europe and the USA. 

This one looks like a Fender Bassman copy though I suppose it could be a Showman circuit as well.  It just might have that "blow your mind" type tone as quite a few of these old ELK's have been described.

Note: I wouldn't count on this seller being open to the idea of shipping this amp anywhere (what would you expect?) so I am sure this will go to some lucky local Olando FL area buyer.

  1. I've got an Elk (Prosonic 2-10 combo) and they are great amps, although a little lightly built.

    Well worth the $275, its probably worth ten times that in Japan.


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.
