Thank you Kyle for your reply. Ya, I saw it yesterday and was quite surprised. I believe she sells items on too, and see came across my CD auctions. American Pickers is a great show and Danielle adds a beautiful Betty Page quality. Happy New Year. Enjoy, Keni Lee

I asked $650 for the Marshall. I ended up accepting a swap for a Gibson Explorer instead. I'll have another one ready for sale some time next month. I stll have it atm while I am waiting for the guy to organise the shipping of the guitar. I am in California Gully.
Not sure what I'd ask for a Champ, probably about $500. I'd have to do a proper costing. I think there's about $350 in parts for the Champ but I'm not totally sure. I'd like to get a bit over $100 for my time - and it's quite a lot of time. It's pretty tricky to build an amp in a tin.
