NOW AVAILABLE 5/16/2018. (I had this amp on hold for myself because it is such an amazing one. But i have 3 and rent!! :-) )
I have been buying, collecting and playing vintage guitars since the mid 1970s and one fact that became obvious almost immediately was that if you want to hear your guitar at it's BEST ... in it's truest sense of the intention of it's maker and tone PLAY IT THROUGH A 5E3 NARROW PANEL DELUXE!!!! I have had a nice run of these recently and this 1958 is likely one of the 2 or 3 best i have ever heard. Every component in this amp is original even the noiseless orig filter caps and 2 prong cable. The ONLY one thing done is the orig 1958 Jensen P12Q was just freshly reconed. These amps all sound great BUT every so often you get one where the cabinet itself sounds like an instrument. You can REALLY hear the wood in these old cabs. This amp is in very nice condition as you can see and knowing subject to wear the tweed can be. The speaker code is 220826 meaning the exact middle of 1958. The tube chart reads "HK" meaning October 1958. This beauty has rich clean lows and highs at low volume settings and will tear your head off as the knob rises!! You simply cannot find a better example. (pay no attention to the speaker in the chassis shots. It was a temp)
Pay Pal, Cash, Personal Check, Money Order/Cashier's check, Wire transfers or Western Union. Pay Pal and wire transfers are offered as a convenience for far away buyers and all extra expenses are the customer's responsibilty. Unless i price my guitars up with some of the really big dealers theres not enough profit in Vintage guitars to pay out 3.9% additional. If you need to pay with a credit card there is still a way though i don't take them directly .... and that is that Pay Pal will take the card and pay me through normal services. Any time that a deposit is taken for any special arrangements or "holds" it is non refundable. To have these rules work in your favor all transactions need to be completed or deposited on w/in 5 days.
Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.
All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 48 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them, break them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 48 hour return includes 2 days to receive it and approve or not and you MUST contact me. WE DO STRICTLY adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. If an instument is put on hold and any special arraingements have been made like a deposit and hold followed up by another payment that is considerd a sold instrument since it has been taken off of the market for other possible buyers. Its not fair to us to hold it off the market and then decide against it so make sure to ask ALL questions and we will be thrilled to give you an in hands description. The same poicy holds true if you have us change the guitar (like "set it up for left handed etc ...). If that kind of work is done thats on an instrument that is a done deal also. Thanks. ALL Outside the USA sales are FINAL due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.
