This is a really nice Dec. '58 Fender Bassman (HL) model 5F6-A , EX+ (9.0). It's so hard to find these that are not beat. Original Jenson P-10Rs top 220842, bottom 220843. They were gigging amps and people did play Bass through them so the speakers are often worn out. So I sent the speakers to Weber for reconing and, as always, they did a wonderful job. This amp sounds as good as it gets brothers and sisters. Fully serviced, It has some changed caps but glory be all the original Astrons are there. The trannies are original and everything else except a grounded power chord and the handle. It's not original but it's old and cool. I'll include a new repro in case you're going to be moving it around. I bought a new canvas cover from Custom Amp Covers and it's a good quality repro. Price includes UPS ground stateside and an excellent packing job. Local pick up? Knock a nickel off. "GREAT AMP"
Personal checks are fine. Out of state checks clear in a day or two now. Money orders, no problem. Wire transfers work well. We recommend wise.com for international wire transfer. Sorry, no credit cards. (I don't have to charge you the extra 3%) I have a liberal layaway plan to help people buy expensive guitars. Email for details.
USPS & UPS mainly. In 45 years I've had one UPS claim and they paid it. I don't like Fed Ex but I'll use them if you want. Don't expect them to pay a claim on a vintage guitar. Proper packing prevents problems. I take care to pack so gear will arrive safely.
I don't buy anything I wouldn't want for myself. It's very rare I'll buy something that's not 100% original, but if it has changed tuner buttons or been refretted, I'll tell you. Detailed, accurate descriptions only. Please call for an in hand description. I go to a lot of trouble to pack this stuff right for shipping so it will arrive undamaged. I sell only really nice amps, fully serviced. No returns.
