So I've been searching eBay and other sites for vintage basses, pedals, and heads. I'm looking for a good, reliable vintage tube amp that's preferably over 100 watts. I'm also looking for pretty much any vintage pedals I can find that aren't complete crap.

I've found several Acoustic and Ampeg heads I've been looking into, but when it comes to vintage gear, I know nothing.

...So yeah, if anybody has any advice, tips or knowledge of vintage gear in general, your input would be greatly appreciated.

I also found this>>http://

Even if it isn't vintage, it still has caught my eye and I'm looking into buying one when I get the money. Does anybody know anything about this bass? I don't see a model name anywhere on it.

Thanks again.

I also just acquired a semi-hollow Norma bass guitar. I searched Norma and only came up with vintage guitars, and not a single bass

I found a lot of sites that sold "sought after" vintage gear, including Norma guitars, but on eBay, the most expensive one I saw was under $200.

Does anybody have any knowledge of this company?

Thanks again.

Wow, I expected "sorry, never heard of them."......and nothing more.


Thanks a bunch.

So basically, I hold no treasure in my hands.

By the way, it's a semi-hollow. Not solid.

If it sounds good, it's treasure. Fact.

A kickass vintage bass amp brand to look out for is Sunn. Don't buy Sunn branded guitars though - they're Squiers with the Sunn name on the headstock.

I don't know if it sounds good yet, it doesn't work. I took it to the local guitar shop and he said it needs to be rewired

I'll let you know how it sounds when it's fixed.

I'll look around for Sunn amps. Would they happen to be tube amps?

How about vintage...or...older Orange heads? I just found one, all tube, looks pretty good, 200 watts, but no price. Anybody know anything about these?

Sir John Swift would be the man to answer this question. he owns a vintage Orange,
tube amp. Orange built very nice amps, but they are usually very pricey, +$1000.
