    I was on my break at Food Lion today and looking through a free Classified thing for the general area in which I live (Eastern Shore of MD) and noticed one really interesting ad.

    Ampeg SVT bass amp head, w/ 2 cabinets 1-12" and 1-15", all new tubes in head, mid 70's model, very strong, $450 obo.

    I'm sure this is a much better deal than I realize being a vintage SVT but I figured I would get the TB input before doing anything. What do you guys think? Did they even have a 1-12" cab or is that most likely of another brand? Should there have to be something wrong with it for it to be this price or what?

    I purposefully didnt put the contact info. No way I'm giving up my only real chance at the holy grail of bass amps. I just hope this guy is for real.

    Jump on that one right away! The heads by themselves typically go for over a grand if they're working and in decent condition.
