    Found this on Craigslist:


    $500 for the head, sounds like a good deal, what do you guys think? He said tubes are relatively new and there are no issues. Anything in particular I should know about this era of B15s?

    Nice 30W amp. Knobs are not original. Replacements are available from fliptops.net. The original cab was a Thiele based design. Replacement era correct also available from fliptops. Would also sound good with a TL606 design or just about anything else.
  3. The one I own ('68) was $1495 August. I loved it so much I made it my avatar! Had to replace a resistor that'd rattled loose on the trip back here from Seattle, the power cord, and then the tubes about a month ago. Other than that, no issues, and it sounds fantastic.

    I paid $500 for a complete 65 that was in rough shape a few years back. I'd have a hard time saying this is a good price, but with the heritage amps out and inflation, etc, prices seem to have crept up a bit so maybe it's right.

    If it needs a cap job figure in at least $100 in added expenses.

    It would interest me if it were $400.
