1965 SOUND X-305R 1x15" tube combo amp in Pasadena for $350

This seller is offering a rare bird indeed, the Sound X-305R  (which he calls an X-305R-2 not sure why).  There is not much info on these available but they have been featured in Collectors Weekly and there is a schematic and photos posted on another website as well  SOUND X-3065R PICS and an article about some simple modifications to this model on PREMIER GUITAR
From what I can see this amp should be about 30 - 40 watts with a vintage 15 Jensen speaker. Closed back vented cabinet similar to some Ampeg and Kustom setups.   In fact from the picture of it with an open back it looks very similar to my old Ampeg Gemini IV.    I would expect it to sound pretty good in that jazzy, clean bluesy way of the older Ampegs.

  1. Those photos are from a recent ebay auction in Milwaukee. I wonder if they're borrowed photos or the same amp?

  2. I have one of these amps. one day I will find a replacement set of power tubes and see if she sings.

    1. There is a pair of Vintage NOS Sylvania 7868 tubes on eBay right now for $29.99 BIN That's a very good price - 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.
