    I have an Acoustic 370 head, and I'm selling it to pay off a more powerful rig. It's:

    Got some grease-pencil type markings at the knob/slider adjustments, and one wobbly slider (50Hz)- though the slider works fine, no noise, etc (5-band bass-specific EQ works pretty good for a 30 year-old design).

    Missing two rubber feet at the stand-up end. I can fix this if you like- but it'll be understood they won't be original.

    Has a nice built-in steel handle at the pick-up end.

    It shut down once at a gig, due to the fact I was running the "Monitor Outs" to an external power amp, and the 370 didn't like the fact I was running it with no load on the speaker outs. No extenuating problems have arisen from this- it works as expected, and I've been using it regularly since.

    Typical speaker 'Thump' at start-up. Harmless, and fun!

    Looking for $250 + shipping (I've found FedEx to be the least expensive, and they're reliable), trades aren't of interest at this time. It's a good-sounding, solid head, gig-hardy. If you're in New England, we can meet, or you can try it out before you committ the cash.

    Thanks for reading,

    Rog.

    I love Acoustic gear! I've a B320 head, and a 2x15 cab from them. Great stuff, reliable too, and easy for anyone to fix (even if you've no knowledge of electronics! Everything's labeled inside, and a nice diagram, and no tricky circuit boards). Someone pick this up!
