By far THE rarest Carlsbro amp you will ever find, and possibly the earliest serial number also! The CS40L Script Logo Amplifier was made in Mansfield, England in the early 1960s. We believe this was made around 1963, with the serial number of 201 showing it was only the 201st amplifier to come out of the factory. We have only HEARD of 3 other combo amplifiers like this, and only ever seen one other online. Their serial numbers were 202, 224 and 313. If you're looking at this, you will know the rarity and quality of this rare amp, not to mention the almost PERFECT sound. 

Along with the rarity of this, you can see this includes the first ever Celestion G12's, T650. Pre-Rola and Pre 'Silver Bulldogs'. These were used only in the early 60s Marshall 4x12's, along with this amplifier, and are valued at astronomical prices! You will not find another set like this, nor another amp like this!

As you can see from the photographs, this has 2x EL34's, 1 GZ34 and 3x Preamp Valves. They all work perfectly fine and it is extremely quiet for an amplifier of this age. I have attached photographs of the 'guts' of this to show you amp lovers just how well this is made. From what I can gather, little or nothing at all has been changed, but I'm sure you will know this anyway. Don't forget you're welcome to come look and play with this. 
 
This amp includes the original highly desirable lay-down transformers! These, in themselves are worth a few pounds. However, we feel it sacrilege to split this amp up.

All original amplifier!

You can also read up on the rarity and the history of this amplifier here. Please note the comments by 'Dunxb' who puts it perfectly: http://vintageamps.com/plexiboard/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=22737 

I can't stress how good this amp sounds! Come have a play!
 
The pictures show as much detail as possible but any questions can be answered to the best of our knowledge.
 
Being such a rare version of this amplifier, we are putting this up at a very reasonable price. The history of this amplifier far out ways the price. It's a bargain as I'm sure you'll all know. We really want this to go to a good home so please give us a call if you're interested.
 
Any item sent through the post will be securely packed and insured for the sale price. We really would prefer pickup on all our items as it is a shame to send such delicate beauties through the post, with the risk of breakages.

However, if the buyer really can't pick this up, we can either send it through the post or, if you call on 07970061897, we may be able to deliver it at a small cost.

Please Note: We have the right to remove any item before the sale is over as everything is for sale elsewhere.
