Custom Kraft (Valco) Model 880 1960's Tube amp in Vegas for $400

This Las Vegas area seller is offering a Custom Kraft 880 "Dyno Blast" Guitar Amp for $400.  I have not personally played one of these (they are fairly rare) but I recall from a post I read that this was the top of the line Custom Kraft guitar amp in 1967.    It's not the same as some of the smaller Valco amps since it is an AB Push Pull Circuit - but I expect that the Solid State Rectifier would give this amp a good deal of punch without the usual sag associated with a tube rectifier. If you are all about the "sag" then this might not be for you - but I tend to like very sharp attack in my amps.  If I want sag I use my Magnatone M10a (now that is one saggy amp LOL.)

This exact amp was sold for $599 by a California dealer a little over a year ago (I recognized the wacky purple background in the photos).  This should make a nice studio amp, though with its pair of Vintage RCA 6L6 tubes it probably gets pretty darn loud (similar to a Silvertone 1484).  - 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.
