For sale is a 1965 Epiphone Futura EA-12 RVT 4x10" Combo Amplifier in very good condition. This is the same circuit as the coveted Gibson GA-30RVT with a OA2 tube-driven tremolo with two 7591 output tubes per channel. When Bob Dylan went electric in 1965, these were the backline amps, so needless to say it can get LOUD with 50W driving four 10" CTS speakers (all original). This amp has a rich, full clean tone and breaks up beautifully when cranked. A true beast among amps! It's in decent cosmetic shape for its age, with signs of wear throughout (see photos); but it's fully functional and includes the original footswitch.
