    1970's Acoustic 370 Head. This thing is a beast. It's on Reverb but cheaper for TB.

    Price includes economy shipping to most continental US destinations. Paypal, Venmo, Cash App all OK.

    Trade interests: 32" scale basses, or maybe a short scale. Otherwise, pretty much looking to sell.

    This solid state beast is legendary- tons of power but also capable of great tone through a small cab (I used it with a 1 x 10 which is kind of silly, but I promise it still sounds great at bedroom volumes, though admittedly waaaay cooler through something bigger).

    I'd describe the sound as smooth and articulate, but with the bright switch and 5-band onboard EQ this amp has a huge variety of tones to cut through. I think my favorite sound is with a slight mid boost giving it some punchy growl.

    Condition Issues:
    • Some scratchiness to the volume pots and slider pots at peak value range. Not much, but it's there.
    • Top of knobs are dented/worn, but fully functional
    • Cable is wrapped in electrical tape- was like this when I got it and I have not unwrapped it as everything functioning properly.
    • The power indicator LED flickers
    • Spare fuse is missing
    • Regular cosmetic wear and tear- easy to see in the photos.
    Works and sounds terrific. Specifications shown in the manual which is attached to this listing.

    Please ask any questions you have before buying- thanks!

    Very cool! That's a lot of exercise hauling this thing in and out of gigs six nights a week for two years!

    It was definitely a good workout and it also had it's own anvil road case to protect it which added significant weight, but I was a lot younger then...LOL!!!
