Just saw a Fender Bandmaster in the local ads for around R2200 (thats around 200 US dollars). Its supposedly a 1967 model, but from the picture it looks like a silverface, not a blackface (according to wikipedia though, some of the 1967 bandmasters still had the original blackface circuitry).

Anyway, I was quite surprised at the low price for an original vintage Fender, but it turns out thats the going rate for these amps! (according to harmony central anyway).

How can this be? Does anyone have any experience with this amp? Should I get it??

IIRC, it's basically the head version of a Super.

If you have the dough, it's a good buy. Very good buy. You need a cab, though.

It is advertised with what looks like a matching Fender cab of some sort...

^Or don't, because if it does and he doesn't know, it'll be cheaper.

In fact, if the year is correct, it absolutely has BF circuitry.

Haha, yeah I'm not gonna ask about the circuitry

Read somewhere you can easily mod the silverface to blackface circuitry anyway.

Anyway, phoned they guy and he's "out of town", he took my number. If he gets flooded with calls he'll probably realize his mistake and up the price anyway, haha. O well.

It's not even 2 hours since he first posted the ad Sure he would have realized somethings up. Might be some lucky guy out there.
