Magnatone MP-1 1x12 tube combo in Gold COuntry, CA for $400 obo

Here is a seller offering one of the lesser known but still terrific Magnatone models, the MP-1.  This is from the Estey Period and when they were changing factories - I think some of these were even made in Pennsylvania - but quality control was still high and they were expensive amps at the time made with very good components.  As far as I am aware, none of the MP-1's have "true vibrato" (varistor) but they do have both a gorgeous lush tremolo and reverb, all tube driven.  

Note:  That Alamo amp may be interesting as well - but my experience tells me they are very hit or miss.- JC

I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - 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.
