    Well it is the least expensive base model, no options no 100 watt. And you can never assume one auction is indicative of the value. I have watched loads of auctions and if you're patient you can every so often get a ripping deal.

    There is a guy locally trying to get $3200 for a loaded original Mk.1 on Craigs List. I want a Mk1 really badly, but I think a grand is my limit for one. The reissues regularly come in at less.

    I have a 60 watter, head. No reverb, but it has the Graphic EQ (which I never use)
    It's a great sounding amp. Not as bloody loud as the 100 W version. You can actually crank it up a bit without losing your ears.
    Leave it on standby for a few minutes before playing, cause it can be a bit cold sounding otherwise. At least mine is.

    I would love to play mine through an Altec 417 speaker some day. :)

    A 60 Watter with no EQ or reverb is not as in demand as a 100 WAtter with reverb and EQ. Still, the amp sold for a good price. I would have bought it if I had known about it and if it was in the U.S.

    I had a 60 watt, no EQ original no reverb Super 60 (aka Mk I) and the Boogie nuts I know incl. the one who bought mine in '98 (I bought it in '77) said they think that is the best sounding of the originals (simplest circuit). I sure enjoyed it for 21 yrs., though I don't really ever miss it or wish I had it back.
