Magnatone M15 in Cleveland for $300 - (too heavy to ship)

I contacted this seller and this amp is still available. These M15's are some of the best amps that Magnatone ever made. Stereo "True Vibrato" and dual output transformers along with gorgeous Reverb. You can't do much better than this as far as rare and outstanding vintage guitar amps. If the previous (original?) owner really did put an 18 inch speaker in there then this would be a mind-altering jazz guitar amp though it is likely it is just a 15 inch - I doubt you could fit an 18).

They are looking to sell it to a "good home" so please don't try to lowball or scam them. Just contact them if you are actually planning to purchase and use the amp.

I would be buying this amp for myself but I can't think of any delivery service i would trust with one of these amps - they are big and heavy and easily damaged.

I also included a youtube link to a guy playing through an M15 - check out the tone on his version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - you'd have to use a real Leslie rotating speaker cabinet to get that kind of tone in the studio. Amazing.

This is a vintage Magnatone Guitar Amplifier. We are currently not using and wish to sell it to someone who will appreciate and use it. I believe that my Father modified it with a single 18" speaker before he passed away. Amp is in good working order and practically indestructible. Comes with wheel cart for easy transportation. Price is negotiable, CASH only please.

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.
