Gibson GA-30 thinking about selling$$$
2 Attachment(s)
i just recently recieved this amp from a family member. the exterior is gorgeous its in really good condition. but it doesnt work quit yet. I think the filter caps are dryed out because its around 50 years old and i can tell they havent been replaced. if anyone has a enquire about it drop me a line.

and i do have a pic attached

Try eBay. If you have good feedback or knowsomeone who does, you might get a decent amount for it.

Whatever you do, don't "restore" it - vintage amps are worth more if they are in original condition. If it needs fixing take it to a qualified tech and get it done professionally.

If I were you, I would keep it, learn how to play and just enjoy it... Old guitar amps are great- so much tone! :D

Hi Matthefish,

Do you want to fix it? Or sell it?
Try the Trading post to sell it, else tell us more...

i think im going to sell it because i dont have enough money right now to pay for a professional technician to repair it. and also there are none around here.

woooowwww, that sounds like a real nice treasure you got there... think twice what you do with it.. these kind of vintage amps are very rare... hey, they should be protected by law.

I agree, you may kick yourself later for letting a classic slip thru your fingers...

Maybe chuck it in the garage for a while, see how you feel about it in a few months...
