Nice 1965 Gretsch 6150T combo tube amp on eBay for $389 BIN

Very desireable little amp in nice original condition. These are similar to a Vibro Champ but much much harder to find and the BIN on this one is a decent price. Personally, I'd take one of these over a Champ any day of the week. Seller is a guitar shop so this should be a safe deal. Check it out:


1965 Gretsch 6150T Guitar Tube Amplifier 6150 Tremolo




The 6150 series was probably Gretsch's best-selling and longest lasting small amp. Similar to Fender Champs in many ways, they remain particularly loved and sought after by harp players and for studio work. This one is equipped with a tremolo circuit which is still functioning very well.

This amp puts out about 5 watts of vintage tube tone through it's original 8" speaker. It was built by Valco in their Chicago facility in 1965. It has the classic Gretsch patterned tolex with white piping around the front edge of the amp. Tubes include 2-12AX7 (preamp/tremolo), 1-6V6 (power), and 1-5V3 (rectifier). It has two inputs, standard and treble, single volume and tone controls and the Tremolo control knob. There is a tremolo footswitch input along with it's pilot light and fuse holder on the chrome control panel.

This vintage amp still looks good and sounds good. Make it yours today!

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.
