I don't think it's still in production?but then again, it's not a guitar amplifier?at least from the pictures you have, it appears to be a PA.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

yea i know its a PA but it was used with my grandfathers 1957 gibson les paul which he still has. he gave me this amp for my early birthday present.

Ah, alright...I'm not sure why it matters that it was a 1957 Gibson. Actually I know why it doesn't matter. Just because it doesn't matter. A PA system can run a microphone, why wouldn't it be able to run a guitar. Of course it'll play a guitar through it, it's just not a guitar amplifier. Therefore, you'd be unlikely to find a guitarist who used one. I would suggest you search around harmony central.

I have that head, I think that exact unit, but I thought mine was only 120 watts....hm...


Mine is pretty noisy, the capacitors are bad I believe. And if it's the same as mine, it's a SS head, not a tube head. It'll work great for jsut amplification.


I can give you more info, I'll just edit this post after I go look at my head.

Yeah, I have that exact thing. And yeah, it's SS. no tubes.


Knobs can be cleaned with pot cleaner from radioshack, about $7 a bottle, it'll last you forever. Reverb is a spring thing, works decent, the reverb jack lets you turn on or off the reverb with a footswitch, if you really wanted to know how I could figure out rather easily how to do it. The monitor jack lets you send out a signal, not sure what level, but something like for headphones, not nearly enough for a cab of any sort.

If you wanted, you could use the reverb like an effects loop, that'd require some more modding but it's do-able, you would just take out the reverb, putting two jacks in it's place, so you coul dhook up whatever effect you wanted in the middle, where it thinks the reverb is.

The head is freaking heavy, and mine is actually newer than yours, around 1974 or 1975 I think, I have a funky cab that is made in whatever year the amp isn't (both are peavey). This thing will last you for forever, it'd be hard to kill one of these.


edit: show me a pic of the tubes. I don't believe you!

I got it about two years ago. I was playing in a band that needed equipment, and I knew a guy who was in a band with a friend who went to a church that had it, but it was broken. Simple fix, the power cord was broken right at the case. Since then, it's been used as a monitor amp, a guitar amp and now it mainly powers my stereo system

I don't know how much it is worth, you might could sell it for $100. I don't really want to get rid of mine, because it's worth more to me than it is to other people, I know it works, I know it's quirks, you know? What someone would give me to own it wouldn't be enough to make me want to sell it most likely.
