Airline Twin 12 Tube amp in a Custom Cabinet in Detroit for $550

This looks like a really nice conversion job on this Airline 9171. This amp has the same basic tube lineup as the Silvertone 1485 and I'd suspect it sounds just as good. The cabinets were always the weak spot on these so a nice heavy duty jointed pine custom build like this is a dream come true.

I doubt the previous owner would have taken the effort and expense to do all this if the amp didn't sound pretty damn awesome.

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.
