    Anyone know the value of such an amp? It is in mint condition and even has an orange sticker on the speaker (in the back... some type of manufacturing sticker). Seller is asking $350... is that reasonable, a good buy, or price on the high end?

    2012 Vintage Guitar price guide has low/high: $500/$600.

    The Gibson amps seem to be going up in prices. If all the other major components are original, the handle and logo are in good shape this may not be a bad deal. Have you played this yet?

    Have not tried it... seen in on a website similar to Craigs List. I'll look into it more... thank you.

    Most of these will have some noise due to bad caps, rotten speaker cones, etc. and 2 conductor power cord. Could be worth negotiation points. Good luck sorting it out...

    If running right, these are Champ killers. Check it out. Looks to be about in the right $$ ball park.
