1962 VOX AC-4, 100% Original, EXC Condition, Rare Amp!

Up for sale, a 1962 Vox AC-4 in exceptional, collector-grade condition and in perfect working order. This early JMI tube amplifier is 100% original and complete, with original fawn tolex, brass vents, stock transformers, and even the stock “woodie” footswitch! Powered by a single EL84, this amp delivers classic Class A Vox tube tone at bedroom volumes, with a tone that actually stays quite clean. With simple Volume and Tone controls, the circuit is a pure platform for highlighting the guitar plugged into it, with a dynamic sound that can vary notably based on the pickups that are pushing the original 8″ speaker. The tremolo is particularly fantastic on this amp, with a thick, warbling three-dimensional quality that belies the amp’s small stature. Still wired for the original 240V power, this Vox comes equipped with a step-up transformer to convert the voltage from US to UK power while maintaining the amp’s originality.

1964 Fender Red Sparkle Strat, 100% Original with OHSC, Extremely Rare Custom Color!

For a left handed vintage Strat, this is as rare as it gets! This is a factory original Left Handed 1964 Fender Strat in the ultra rare custom color finish: Red Sparkle. It is also known as Metallic Red, and the abbreviation of “MR” along with LH for Left Handed can be seen in the top of the body. The letters are in a style that is typically seen on custom color finishes done by the Fender factory.

This is a color that Fender rarely used, and is not even seen in the Fender factory finish literature. Most likely it was a color used for promotional purposes, such as the NAMM show. So it is more rare than even the rarest custom colors!

1960 Gretsch Country Club 6196, Cadillac Green, EXC Condition, 100% Original with OHSC!

Lefty Gretschs are the rarest of vintage electric guitars, relative to Fender, Gibson, etc. This is a late 1960 and it has the deeper 2 1/2″ body of a 1959! This guitar has been very well cared for – it looks like it was played for only a short time and then put away in storage. It even has the original flatwound strings in a bag!

The only thing that appears to ever have been done on this guitar was a fret level from the 10th – 22nd frets. The original frets are in great shape, with only minor wear on the first 3 frets. The back of the neck shows hardly any wear at all, as well as the Ebony fingerboard.
