About This Listing

HOLY GRAIL ALERT!!!  Here we have a 1968 Sunn Coliseum PA Head in immaculate condition up for grabs...we're talking museum quality here folks. Not only that but i'm going to throw in the original Sunn branded KT88 tubes to the lucky buyer.  My guess is that they no longer work but i've never tested them and i'm not going to put them into the amp and see what happens so for the collector out there...bonus for you.  There is one small ding in the tolex front top middle and I've included that in the pictures. I'm not going to go on and on about the history of this amp and blah blah blah...if your looking at this then you already know.  Why in the world would you spend upwards of $2500 for a Model T or a Jessup Coliseum Clone when you can have the actual amp that started it all for a significant amount less?! Regardless...the amp has been recently serviced and is in top notch condition. The tubes are all good, the power cord has been swapped out with a 3 pronger and this bad boy is ready to roar!!  Chasing that tone? Here it is! Looking to shred the paint off of the walls via your amp? Here is your chance!!  This amp is soooooo rare, especially in this kind of condition so don't miss out.  For the collector or the player...here's the amp that you've been waiting for! Works great for guitar as well as bass...it'll take anything you throw at it and then some!!  As of right now i'm only offering local pick up because this thing weighs a ton and chances are it will stay that way but who knows at this point. I might be willing to meet someone within a certain distance but that all depends.  I'm open to offers but please no low balling. If you want more pictures please contact me as well.  Anyways...thanks for looking and to the winner...congratulations!!!!!

**On a side note I figure i'd just add that this was the amp famously used by Mr. Leslie West (i.e. Mississippi Queen etc) and Mr. Jimi Hendrix (who used up to 5 of these bad boys at a time!). This amp has had quite a reputation of being played by alot of the greats and the reason for the much celebrated magical tone behind them.**
