Just picked this up as a garage sale. Model 1448 guitar and amp case... guitar almost virgin with just a few stains. Case has a couple of nicks, a cigarette burn and a hinge to be repaired. Amp powers up, but just hums.....
So, what's it work and is it worth taking to someone to fix the amp? Oh, btw, I get it for $ 15.
Me too. I'm new to Springfield and am asking around to find a tech that isn't heavy handed with vintage amps. As soon as fixed, I'll post a vid.
I know the guy at hand picked guitars.... really good, can't be rushed...but unfortunately he's in the middle of selling out and moving (it think to Florida). If anyone has a spare $500M laying around, I could probably buy the business and a good amount of stock before his walls empty. I'd hate to ask him to start something in the middle of his situation. Most of the rest of the shops farm their repair stuff out. I'd rather deal with the tech directly...
I'm going to talk with the guy at hand picked to see where he sent his repair work when he got to busy to do it himself. should find a good tech that way. really don't want to ship it out of town. too many bad things can happen. Even insured, I'd hate to lose it or get it trashed.
Sorry to hijack for a moment. But Ron are you from Freeport/Lake Jackson Tx. area? Your name isn't real common. Sorry for the interruption.
Sam that's a killer find. I was happy about my $5 BC amp. But you get the trophy for "Deal of the Week" LOL
friggin sweet score for that price .. these things usually go for $400 to 700 ish depending on condition .
There's just enough "patina" on the case to prove it's age, but the guitar is in amazing shape. It has generic control knobs and on tuner post doesn't match the set. otherwise it is original and pure....
case shape is as expected and don't matter much unless its trashed .. get that amp goin and i'd say you got a 700 to 799 $ setup.
you could post it in my vintage group http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/teisco-lovers-group
maybe even get repair tips there . or offers
Thanks anonymous, the case needs one hinge reattached, has acouple nicks and one cigarette burn, but otherwise solid. I'll get it done and then see if I can let go of it.
That's the Bee's Knee's right there Sam, Awesome!
I do love G-Sales!!! Hitting some today and tomorrow :-)
