Guild Thunderbird Tube amp in Boston area for $300

The Thunderbird was Guilds version of the Fender Pro Reverb. It has Dual 6L6 power tubes for about 50 watts, Tremolo and Reverb. I don't know much about Guild amps but my quick research tells me that this seems like a unique example because it has the Cabinet and speaker configuration of a "Version 2" Thunderbird but the Face panel and chassis appear to be from the earlier Version 1. I suppose it could be a transition model.

These amps are well liked by players that own them and they fly way below the radar. If this is a Version 1 chassis then it would probably have the "can reverb" instead of the full "pan reverb" of the later model. Check it out:

This is an early '60's Guild Thunderbird guitar amplifier as advertised at the time by a very young George Benson. There aren't many of these around and an opportune time for someone to pick this up. A couple spots where covering has peeled but not bad .... cabinet can be easily recovered and look new. I'm on Cape Cod but thought there may be better interest in and around the Boston area, Call Jim 508.***-****

NOTE: I will not reply to emails ... too many spammers and scammers on CL.
