LOVELY c 1962 vintage original RARE Gretsch Chet Atkins 6160 guitar amplifier NR

2x Jensen speakers RARE to see in UK just 1p No Reserve

I ship worldwide - please see 'P&P and Payments' section for all shipping rates. Currency of this and all my auctions is GBP £ Sterling you cannot bid in any other currency!!!!

This is an auction for a Nice sounding and OK condition original c. 1962 1963 Gretsch Chet Atkins 6160 guitar amplifier it is a nice sounding guitar amp and has the classic vintage Gretsch sound. It has what I think are the original Jensen Special Design speakers and I think it is mostly original.

I am not a huge expert in these amps but as far as I can tell, it has the original cabinet, grille cloth (in good but used condition) and most of the original covering, similar to the Gretsch guitar cases of the period. The Tolex has a few dings here and there and there are a few small holes in the grille cloth plus there is corrosion all over the metal parts which seems to be the norm for these amps. The original logo is mostly missing too.

There are no internal pics because it appears you need to remove the baffle board to gain access and I cannot do this because 2 of the old screws are stuck fast! I have taken as many pics as I can so you can see some parts of it but the last owner of a few years has not informed me of any changes. I am however selling it totally AS-IS with no returns.

Amp works at 115V AC but there is a 240v AC transformer fitted to the bottom of the cabinet so you can use it fine in Europe and if it is sold to 115v countries it should be a simple task to remove this transformer.

It is not very often you see these in the UK, in fact this is the first so grab it while you can! Included is a copy of the manual.

Please have a good look at the 20+ high resolution photos I have posted to fully appreciate the good condition this amp is in

This is a genuine NO RESERVE auction with a 1p start so will sell here on ebay for a bargain price!

I will post for the rates in the 'P&P and Payments' section, or you are more than welcome to collect. Please note that some areas of Europe are more expensive (e.g. Greece) so treat the rates as a guide. If sold overseas, buyers are responsible for any customs or taxes in their own country.

Cash on collection from Cheltenham is welcome and no problem!

Please see my other auctions for loads more interesting stuff (as usual)...

All items are sold AS-IS and are described to the best of my abilities. They include any issues that are stated in the description plus any that I may not be aware of. Any questions just ask. 

Thanks and good luck!

Winning bidder MUST make contact with me within 24 hours and let me know payment schedule and method or item may be offered to next highest bidder.
