1959 Gibson 18A amp listed for sale on Craigslist

A very cool vintage Gibson amp listed on Craigslist in the Portland, OR area for only $600. Click here to view the ad.

The ad lists it as a 1959 model, however since Gibson built these with tremelo from 1960 to 1962, it’s more likely from one of those years..  Most of these Gibson tweed amps from made from 1955 to 1965 can really deliver a great tone, comparable to many classic Fender models but at a lower price.  The 18A has 14 watts of power and might make a very nice amp for smaller venues and/or recording.

This particular amp lacks the original tween covering but appears to be a mostly original and fully functional amp.  Might be a great choice for the non-collector who actually wants to play the amp.
