    Hey,

    I came across a guy selling a '71 SF Princeton, non-reverb for what seems like a reasonable price. This is what the seller had to say about it:

    How much would you expect to pay for this amp?

    the 2008 vintage guitar magazine price guide shows the value of 1971 SF princeton non-reverb in excellent cond. to be between $425 and $475. hope that helps a bit.

    cheers,

    I doubt it's all that rare. :) All non-reverb BF/SF Princetons have tremolo

    Good to know - this guy is trying to take me for a bit of a ride - he's asking $600 and it isn't in great shape.

    Any way someone could scan a copy of the price guide page as a PDF so I can show him?

    I'd do $400 for one that's not in good shape. $600 if it's mint. Just my opinion.

    Look at ebay completed auctions. I just saw a couple of blackface sell for less than his asking price for this one. Most sell for more, but these 2 didn't, and one was a transitional model blackface w/white knobs.
