Killer amp rig in Immaculate condition. Sounds amazing and looks sweet as well with the upgraded Lacquered Tolex.

For the manufacturer:

"This amp was developed by working closely with Vince Gill to achieve the right clean tone while highlighting the upper register frequency that he is famous for. Like the original 50 watt chassis, this model uses hand built, point-to-point construction, Hammond Transformers, top quality signal capacitors and octal pre-amp tubes but has a re-designed tone stack that allows you to achieve a bit more clean highs. This amp uses 6550 power tubes but can also use 6L6s.

The VG-50 model utilizes the same Preamp and Phase Inverter and rectifier tubes but due to a more powerful power transformer this amp can use 6550, KT88, or 6L6 power tubes. This amp also has a tone stack that was developed for Vince Gill’s touring rig. Vince asked for a bit more top end with his Tele’s so a new Volume, Bass Roll-Off, and Tone stack was created. The bass roll-off is in the very low frequency range while the tone pot allows for a bit more high frequency tone.

This amp is known for it's clean head room. It doesn't exhibit much breakup but gains a bit of “hair” in the upper volume range. The VG-50 offers more headroom than the standard 50W Model.

This amp was designed to provide a wide, fat, clean foundation for the musician to build on.

Features:

6SC7 Preamp.
6SL7 Phase Inverter.
6550, 6L6 or KT-88 Power Tubes.
5U4 Rectifier.
Special Tone Stack designed for Vince Gill.
Lacquered Tweed finish.
4 x 10" Lacquered Tweed Convertible Cabinet."

**Price is firm. Not really interested in trades unless you have clean, lawsuit era MIJ stuff from Tokai, Greco, Burny, Edwards, Orville, Ibanez or Yamaha etc. I also dig vintage US-made guitars and amps and all manner of higher-end wristwatches.
