This is a Vintage Late 1960's Acoustic Bass 360/361 Bass Guitar Amp "The One" that Jaco Pastorius, John Paul Jones, and countless other bands used in the late 1960's. It's a great find in perfect working order. It's not as heavy as it looks. It's very maneuverable for it's size and the tone is what makes it all worth owning. Here is a write up from the Fretboard Journal:

"The Acoustic 360 may be the most heard, least acknowledged amp in music history. John Paul Jones used a pair of them with Led Zeppelin; Dave Brown played one at Woodstock with Santana; John McVie used them in the early days of Fleetwood Mac; and it was the amp of choice for legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius. The 360 was designed for Acoustic in 1967 by Harvey Gerst and Russ Allee, two engineers who felt the world needed a bass amp that could compete in volume with the Marshall stacks that rock guitarists were using in ever growing numbers. The 360 was loud but thanks to the well designed 361 speaker cabinet, that featured a single 18-inch speaker and a large folded horn, it had a wonderful tone and a very musical sound. The 360 has the usual volume, bass and treble controls along with a built-in fuzz tone and a 5-position Variamp section that allows you to adjust set frequencies."

The amp is clean for it's age and is in perfect working order. I don't want to ship this because it would probably be very costly and I don't want to risk it getting damaged in freight. I will, however, personally deliver it within 60-70 miles from Dekalb, Illinois for $100.00. It's really hard to find a good working and well cared for amp like this for sale. Please e-mail any questions. Thanks for looking.
