Fender 1985 Rivera-era Concert Amp in Stucio City for $300

Here is a seller offering a nice Fender Concert Head (also known as the Concert II).  This is one of the Paul Rivera line of Fender amps that included the Super Champ.  These are nice amps with a complex multi gain stage and several push-pull knobs to add brightness and other goodies.  I used to own a Concert 1x12 and it was a great amp - too much of an amp for me really - it is a 60 watt output but mine got really loud.  I never played it above about 3 or 4 (and I like to play loud - ask my neighbors).

The only thing this one may be missing is the footswitch, which is a shame because they are hard to come by and you can't use a normal two button TRS switch, you would have to make or find one.

This seller is asking a very reasonable price.  One of these just sold today on eBay for $406 + $75 shipping.  When I got rid of mine I traded it straight up for a Gibson Blues Hawk  which is worth about $900 (but mine was also modified and signed by Lee Jackson so it was a very special amp). 


Vintage 1985 Riviera-era Fender Concert Amp - $300 (Studio City)

For Sale - 1985 (Riviera-era) Fender Concert (II) Amplifier. This is a real classic, with a fantastic sound, I have used the amazing tube sound of this amp to warm up a digital (Line6 POD, etc) guitar chain during recording. It is in very good condition considering its age, mostly due to its studio use.

I am an engineer, not a guitarist, and while I have loved having this guy around I rarely do tracking anymore and I feel this classic piece of gear would be better suited for someone who can really take advantage of it. I've included a few pics, but you'll need to google it for in-depth specs.

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.
