1960's Fender Super Reverb Amp - $650 in Southern California (East of Los Angeles).

From the looks of the photos this is a circa 1964 - 1966 Super Reverb and it looks to be 100% original. I called and spoke to the seller and let him know it was a valuable amp and he said - "Last time I checked they were running $800 but we are moving so I am letting it go cheap." I planned to tell him to raise the price but then thought - who am I to spoil somebody's good deal. LOL. ************************ 1960"s Fender Super Reverb Amp - $650 (Duarte) Circa 1960's.Tube type.With Vibrato.Works!Speakers are good.Buyer must move.CASH ONLY!

Silertone 1484 2x12 tube head nd Cabinet in Napa CA for $500

This would be a great amp to pair with that Silvertone Silhouette and have an awesome all original Vintage setup for $1000 total. I used to own one of these and they are a blast - and they do get loud. Just don't expect to lug it and toss it around carelessly at every crappy bar and club and expect the cabinet to hold up perfectly. That said I've seen plenty of alternative / Indie bands with these amps on stage and they rock the house. SILVERTONE 1484 - $500 (Napa County) It all works fine. The 2 12" speaker cabinet totally rips from every amp I've ever tried them on.

Another Silvertone Silhouette / Harmony 1478 for $500 in Alameda CA

Silvertone Silhouette - $500 - Alameda CA Looks like I spoke to soon - here is another Silhouette aka 1478 this time in Alameda CA and for $500. Thuis one appears to be 100% original with the wooden bridge and open tuners and it is in pretty darn good shape. Back in the day this would have turned up at "Fat Dawg's" in the Bay area. Collectors take note. Great old harmony built 1478 with original dearmond Rowe silver foil/ gold foil pickups and electronics. Plays and sounds great. Includes gig bag.

Annie Clark fans - vintage Silvertone Silhouette in San Diego for $400

Silvertone Silhouette Vintage 60's - In San Diego CA - $400 These Silvertone Silhouettes (aka Harmony Bobcat aka 1478) don't usually turn up for this cheap and this one may already be sold but I had to highlight it based on the feature set and good overall condition for the price. Fans of Annie Clark aka St. Vincent know these guitars can sound awesome and though this one is not all original it does have what many would consider the two upgrades tht make it more managemeble for live performance i.e. upgraded Kluson vintage style tuners and a tuneamatic bridge to replace the wooden one. I prefer these 2 pickup 1478 versions to the 3 pickup 1488 model Annie plays because hers has the dreaded "rocker switches" that are easy to acccidentally knock while playing. I much prefer the basic 3 way switch on this two pickup model. This one does have a significant "boo boo" on its base but some might say that adds to the vintage charm.

Silvertone 1484 Tube Amp in Minneapolis area for $100

Accoerding to this seller the amp works. Sounds like it just needs a little tune up/ cleaning. If you are in the Twin Cities area you may already be on to of this one. LOL. Might even be worth making the trip. 1484's are great Danelectro made amps. A lot of fun and some have even used them onstage (i.e. Jack White). The cabinets are always the weakest part - that and the flimsy reverb units. Sears Silvertone Guitar Amp - $100 (Vadnais Heights) 800 county road e east (google map) Works. Needs some TLC. No speakers in cab. I tested on another cabinet and head works and is loud. All pots could use a cleaning and sometimes play quiter until knob is tapped. Reverb was not working with switch or other switch. Though I can hear slight reverb, it's just not getting through amp. Has new old stock pair of matched russian 6L6GC tubes. Back needs a jack for speaker connection. Has just 2 bare speaker wires coming out from back. Both sides work. Cases are in rough used condition. Comes with rare original pedal. do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers

1980's Kitty Hawk M3 Tube combo Amp in Chicago area for $250

This seller is offering a KITTY HAWK M3 for $250. That's a good price for these fairly well built amps that were made in West Germany in the 1980's. Sort of a variartion on a Mesa Boogie circuit. Big wattage and lots of gain on tap in a very compact package. you can drive multiple speaker cabinets with one of these if you have the need. There is some "Dumble lore" that goes along with these but it is not really founded. Roy Brothers simply were involved in distributing Dumble amps back i nthe day. But these amps are more closely related to the Mesa Boogie in design. Nice deal for somebody. 60W All Tube Amp Last Call!!!!! - $250 (Lombard) < image 1 of 5 >

Fullerton '62 RI Strat in Los Angeles for $3500

This seller in the Los Angeles area is offering a very nice 1983 Fullerton AVRI '62 Strat for $3500. That is a good price for one of these that have been and will continue to be very sought after by collectors. I would guess that this one should have the "Red Bottoom (or Red Bobbin) Pickups" which are terrific and highly prized. But he doesn't say that in the listing so maybe not. These earliest examples of the Vintage Strats were overseen by John Carruthers who apparently had a hand in setting this one up as well. Quite a find really at any price. This one comes with all the vintage style accesories which just adds to the long term value for most colectors. ************* Fender 62 Reissue Stratocaster Fullerton Model - $3,500 (Los Angeles) image 17 of 22 1 12345678910111213141516171819202122 © craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap Well I can’t believe but I have finally decided to part with 1983 Fender AVRI thar is in mint like new condition. This is actually a collectors item because it is what is call a Fullerton model. From my pictures you can see how the beautiful three color sunburst finish transitions so seamlessly between each color which is top quality finishing. This Strat's tone is just fabulous.... the best I have ever heard and action is set to be smooth and low. John Carruthers set this up for me, he’s the best in the business. He helped develop the 62 the 57 and 52 Telecaster to name just a few. This deal includes the mint condition original G&G tweed case. Don’t miss out on this deal. $3500. Check out the fantasic tones of this amazing guitar Please I am downsizing all my gear so I will not consider any trades or partial trades. If you are interested in this guitar let me know by texting me or emailing me here. If you have any questions I would happy to answer you call show contact info . Thanks
