18 Sep The eBay “Watch” Post
Update info as per 18th Sep 2012: removed outdated links and older comments. Banane (Franz)
I am frequently asked by many of you “Fil, what could or should I buy…? Would this or that be good, and how much should I pay?… listen Fil, this one sounds like a great rock and roll guitar….?”
So this is the place for you to post links to point me to, or for me to point you to, equipment sales ads of interest.
So from time to time I’ll post here selected eBay items (and other internet places/links) that either I would buy myself or strongly suggest you to look into. Please feel free to do the same in the comment boxes below, I’ll look into them eventually and add it to the post here).
Most of the time, I will look for/will be looking at issue/bargain pieces.

Hey all. I have a 1979 jmp 2203 with 6550s. If I want the “powerage” sound, should I have it fixed for el-34s? Or should I purchase a 2203 from another year? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks
SoloDallasPosted at 09:48h, 13 April
Clint, this is Fil – YES. EL34s all the way! Swap those guys!
SoloDallasPosted at 09:49h, 13 April
And sorry, what I mean to say is, just swap the tubes, NOT the amp. 1979 is a PERFECT year for 2203s.
Remember, you have to have the amplifier Re-Biased; so unless you know how to personally, PLEASE take the amp to a shop nearby you and have it done there.

Thank you very much for the quick response! I am a very “hands on” person and work on almost everything myself. However, circuit boards scare me. I will for sure have a professional do the work. The only other thing I would love to get your input on is whether or not there is a specific brand and model of EL-34 I should stick to? Thanks again for the help.

Hi Fil, what do you think of this? I really want to pickup a 2203 or 2204 that is as accurate to the late 70s and early 80s AC/DC sound as possible but am aware the JMP’s from 76 may have had different circuitry? It looks like an effects lop may have been added 🙁 Unfortunately I don’t have the opportunity to go test it out:

Looks like a good amp. You can always fix them up or revert to stock.
Just make sure you get it for a good price.

I found a 1982 Marshall JCM 800 combo (model 4104). It is in like new (very nice condition) that was mainly used in a studio and a few gigs. Looks great cosmetically. The price is $1600 without shipping, but I am wondering if that is too high. Should it be more around $1000?
JaiminhoPaginaPosted at 07:46h, 05 April
Maybe it’s a fair price. Could be cheaper though.
Schaf77Posted at 17:25h, 09 February
What do you guys think of this?
It is a USED 1989 Marshall JCM 800 Combo 4104 Canadian import
JaiminhoPaginaPosted at 12:07h, 11 February
Looks very nice. And price seems ok.

Steve Vai’s SVDS receiver was nearly half the price this one is going for!
JohnnyPosted at 00:08h, 01 December
What do you guys think of this??!!!
lapata19Posted at 16:43h, 07 December
Only 5 more hours left. The guy said that the capacitors had been changed. Does that affect the tone in a non desirable way?
Also the guy sent me pictures of the internals, Although I`m not anywhere near to a professional. The capacitor area looks quite messy

It says collection only but if anybody on here wants it I could help out, it’s about 4 hours from me. Don’t see original ones like this at sensible prices very often.
rugsterPosted at 14:33h, 26 November
looks very nice.
Not tempted yourself Rob? 😉
ar2619RobPosted at 18:58h, 27 November
I’ve got a ’70 Rob. I haven’t got that kind of money for something similar to what I have. Always on the lookout though, there’s a few I’d like to have, early Tele and ES355 TD for instance.
ar2619RobPosted at 14:33h, 11 August
On eBay UK, listed as ‘perfect working order’, starting at £170 !!!
Chris MoinyPosted at 17:37h, 11 August
incredible condition, this might be a deal for somebody on here 🙂
Thx for sharing Rob !

Hey everyone. Found this on ebay today http://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Gibson-Sg-Standard-Vintage-Electric-Guitar-/261517441094?pt=Guitar&hash=item3ce3a77846
1970 Gibson SG Standard for U$1800 (BUY NOW PRICE)
Had a neck repair (but does not seem like a big problem)
What do you think?
DriesPosted at 09:18h, 02 July
I think it looks pretty good but some detail pics are needed imo. The frets look a bit worn, and I think the guitar had a refin as far as I can see.

Hi everyone. I have some UK made vintage G12-65 speakers for sale on eBay if anyone is interested. I live in Canada so please take that into consideration when it comes to shipping costs. I will ship outside of North America.

Found that one today on Ebay:
Though Price, though! For myself, I’d say it’s too expensive, but just wanted to let all of you know! 🙂
Tommi FPosted at 12:27h, 19 January
Saw today this offer on Ebay:
Just to let you all know.
Very expensive with 5.300 Euros, but this should be the guitar that Angus played in the first years, thus it is in PERFECT conditions !
DriesPosted at 12:38h, 19 January
Angus’ SG was a 70, had a volute and metal saddles. It’s more a collector guitar, not a player. Why has nobody played it in 44 years? Mint guitars that old look always suspicious to me.
DriesPosted at 12:38h, 19 January
Oh and it had a 3 pc neck 😉
Chris MoinyPosted at 12:55h, 19 January
Yup, Angus’ was a late 70’s early 71’s SG.
This is actually a shop in Germany, vintage shop, but prices are over the limits…
DriesPosted at 15:05h, 12 January
For who’s has interest maybe, I’m selling my 2003 MY sig gretsch, single pickup version. Also selling a 1978 Super Lead, in great shape.
AntPosted at 19:49h, 12 January
How much for just the my sig? 🙂
DriesPosted at 19:51h, 12 January
Don’t know a fair price of this, it was 1800 euros new. Has a bit user traces though !
