    I'm looking to sell my mint condition Fender Bassman 1200. This is basically a Sunn 1200s with some minor internal upgrades. Produces 1200 watts at 2 ohms and has 4 speaker outs!

    Tube preamp section (2 12AX&'s one for clean, one for dirty). Has Vintage NOS tubes in it, sounds wonderful.

    Comes in a mint, lockable SKB type rack case.

    I bought this amp new last year from Sam Ash after needing something with the horsepower to drive a pair of 4 ohm Acme Low B2's. This amp was more than enough. Besides being the loudest amp ever, it gets a beautiful warm sound at realistic volumes. I used it maybe four times, and it has been sitting since. It just too much amp for me!

    I will get some pics up soon, but for now, here is an example pic. Comes with road case, and extra tubes.

    I have one of these and it's well worth the money.

    Would this be ok to play through an 8 ohm cabinet?

    I'm going to bump this once. I forgot I had even put it up for sale, but I had someone PM me about, then disappear.

    I've been using it a lot lately and I actually love it, so unless someone really wants it, I'm probably going to keep it. I'll give it a few days, and then close it out.

    Happy holidays yall!!
