Benson 300 tube combo amp in Redondo Beach CA for $800

This seller is offering a very rare and desirable amp from the late 60's called a Benson 300.  These were pro amps popular with studio players back in the day and you don't see them for sale very often.  Sort of like the Standel Bass amps in the sense that studio players bought them, used them, and held onto them.

It looks like this one has the original 15" Altec Lansing speaker which would make it a Model 300.

There is some info about an Elvis connection to Benson amops on the Scotty Moore website if you click here:   BENSON AMPS


Rare Benson Tube Amp 60's - $800 (Redondo Beach)

All tube amp made by Ron Benson in collaboration with jazz great Howard Roberts. This is not to be confused with the new George Benson amps which are a totally different design.40 watts with reverb and vibrato in a very small package that includes the footswitch and amp cover with pouch. Made in USA,probably Los Angeles or Hollywood.
Write or call for directions.

  1. i cant see the telephone number, how can i contact the seller??? Vincent. +31 6 145 22 683

    1. I always try to erase telephone numbers before copying any seller's listing to avoid having buyers calling them long after the item is already sold. This listing was from June 13, 2013 (2 months ago) so it is most likely already sold. You can check the local Craigslist for this amp (it was in Redondo Beach) to see if the seller has relisted it. Good Luck. - 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.
