Vintage '65 - '67 Era Gibson Saturn GA-45 RVT 2x10 Tube Combo Amp @ No Reserve!

Welcome to another great No Reserve auction from GREENGTRS. I always point out all the features and every flaw I can find and anything else I think is pertinent (never any unpleasant surprises I love my "job", am very picky about what I buy, and choose to sell only what I would enjoy playing myself. In this case it seems like a cool amp I would love to check out and would probably enjoy...tubes, reverb, trem...but I just can't take the time needed to get it up and running again.

is a Vintage Gibson Tube Amp from the 1965 to 1967 era...made in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is going to need some repair made a loud hum when turned on so I turned it right back off...I bought it in a package deal for a guitar I wanted but have no time to put into amp restoration. It appears to be mostly (if not all) original except for the spliced on power chord end. I am no expert on Vintage tube amps and make no claims about the sound of this one. I would estimate at least $100 in repairs if not's an old tube amp which (I'm told) was working fine (up until recently) for it's previous owner but old tube amps require maintenance which this one hasn't had in years. I leave all clean-up and maintenance up to the next owner. I also want to point out that t will be no returns on this item and that t is no guarantee of any kind. I will pack it great but old tube amps are bid and buy this at your own risk. I would recommend having a good amp tech go through it to assess the tubes and old parts and to recommend any maintenance. I go a bit overboard with the warnings but want only 100% happy, repeat customers who will refer their friends...check my feedback as it speaks volumes! Well if a picture is worth a thousand words, then I'll shut up now and let the pictures tell the story...if I forgot to mention anything that you think is important or if you have any questions, please ask before bidding.

This is (as usual for me) a no games, no hidden reserve (no wasted time wondering if the reserve will get hit), highest bidder wins auction. I simply start it at the lowest price I will accept and take my chances. Check my feedback as it speaks volumes! Thanks for looking and bid to win this cool old Gibson Tube Amp!
