    You know it, you try to find modern amps that sound like it, you love it, you just dont love having to move it :)

    For sale is my classic 1970s 300 watt Ampeg Model SVT tube amplifier. I bought this as my studio/recording amp and I love the tone to death. It really sounds and feels like a sack of fuzzy bricks hitting you in the chest. There is nothing quite like it. 100% functional, low hours on the power tubes, pots have minimal noise for their age, runs like a champ, just deserves more usage than what I am giving it (I'm married to my Mesa Boogie Fathom).

    As a side note, even tho the back plate says "V9", I assure you this is not a V9, The Ampeg Company was just lazy/efficient back in the day and used the same back plates from what I can deduce.

    For now I would like to keep this a semi local deal to Southern California (San Diego) and wanted to post it here for a week before Craigs List. Not really interested in shipping this as it sits right now.

    Due to cosmetics, I am only asking $1500 cash.

    As for trades, I am mostly interested in getting a Dingwall, old Warwicks, maybe a Zon or a Pedulla... just prefer thinner necks, not painted or glass. Cheers!

    **I will be in Anaheim this weekend for WonderCon for anyone who wants it in OC or LA**
