What are the odds of finding two cool vintage Kustom pieces in one day?
I've owned the black head since 1970. Never had a color matching bottom for it. I find this one listed as a 3 x 12 cab. Turned out to be a 3 x 15 and if I'm reading the numbers right the CTS's are 1967, making this first year cabinet. Eh?

Then, later in the afternoon I bring home the red metal flake head and it just sounds so good I can hardly believe it. I forgot how good these amps can sound.

Not done yet. At nine AM I had agreed to meet a guy in hopes to be the first one there to pick up, an identical to the one I posted a couple of weeks ago early 2 x 12 Bandmaster empty cab for $60 bucks. I was. I did. The 3 x 12 bottom - $200. The red head......$50. Persistence and luck. Thank you Mr Craig's List.

I also forgot some transistor amps sound GOOD. I'm a dyed in the wool tube guy, but today I was playing thru the cleanest pure guitar I've heard in a long time. Thing is, places to play this rack will be few. It's loud. I don't think a toaster will work on a transistor amp. (Attenuator)

Will they?

Get out! Fifty bucks for the red one?
That really looks good. I would gig with that even if it didn't sound good.
What region [just generally] are you in? SE? Midwest?

I sometimes sub w/ a real old-school guy from San Jose north of here who still has his tattered original red piggystack. [oldies and Chicano rock...perfect!]

very cool... been looking for a PA head and a 2x12 with original tuck and roll. I am old enough to have slept on that stuff riding back from gigs in the van ; )
