    It looks pretty cool. I've never seen that blond tolex option.
    It depends on if you want that vintage folded horn sound.

    BTW, that's not a "stack".
    A stack is two cabs that are made to be stacked, stacked on top of each other, like a Marshall, Trace Elliot, etc.
    A head on a cab isn't a stack.

    Isn't it a half stack, though?:eyebrow:
  3. Sounds over priced.. especially since the seller didn't take the time to rotate the pix.

    Actually, I think even half-stack is a stack (compared to full-stack). These are more terms for guitar rigs (which usually consist of either one or two 4x12" cabs) and have to be adapted for bass rigs - would you say two 4x10"s are a stack and the 8x10" isn't? :)
  5. Stack is wack.

    Vetchking Here:

    The 370/301..... Rig is referred to as a 371.

    If the amp has the original speaker and is working properly. It's worth $1,500.00 up to $2,800.00 depending on condition.

    Too bad someone re-tolexed it in Beige.......... Major UGH.

    Black is the correct color.

    It's also missing the famous "acoustic" blue.

    Google ...the unofficial acoustic site.

    Read where hundreds of guys sold their's and still kick themselves 30 years later.

    LOL............. Have a great one............. Later

    Yeah, I think "half-stack" is where the term broke down.
    If a stack is two cabs on top of each other (e.g. two Marshall 4x12 cabs), how is one cab any kind of stack? Nothing is stacked.
    Yes, I'd say two 4x10 cabs stacked is a stack.
    No, I'd say a single 8x10 cab is not a stack. No cabs are stacked.
    Does it matter? Not really.
    It just strikes me as weird when someone calls a head on a cab a stack. That would make an old Fender Bandmaster a stack.
    It's just me. Who cares?

    Maybe the pic is right side up.
    Maybe the head and cab are laying on their side.
    AHA! In that case it's definitely not a stack. It's a next to.
  9. What just happened? :(

    Dude - unless the amp is broken and the speaker is trash, you'd better been headin' to pick that up. Vetch is right about the tolex - but that's something that can be remedied fairly easily and not real expensive. The amp logo is still there, just get some blue Formica or blue paint for that section. The only other thing that I can see that, while they function the same, the 370 head has white EQ slider caps, not black. Those are almost always gone or have been replaced with the black. The white ones are much more difficult to come by. Google, like Vetch said, real informative site and forum. :cool:
  11. I have just finished re-tolexing my 370 - total cost $35.00 that includes labor....(no cabinet - just head)

    Look, these acoustic amps are starting to make a resurgence. They're built like tanks and sound even better. I don't know if the interest is growing because of George (Vetchking) and his USA Acoustic that is about to be unveiled....but in any event, they are becoming red hot...

    My opinion is grab it...I guarntee you if not you - someone will...:D

    On the "Unofficial Acoustic Site", you will find more than enough info (as well as parts) to completely re-do your tolex, feet, corners, handles, etc etc....good folks over there...

    I had a 371 in about 1975. It was Acoustic's answer to the SVT. (IMO) The 18" Vega really packed a wallop. It is certainly worth the sellers asking price, both as a collectors item, and for use if you like old school tone.
  15. OK...took a few pics of my "restored" 370:




    To be honest, I haven't yet located the "proper" knobs....but until then, I guess these will do.....:D
