Up for sale is a Kustom 1-B combo. There's not really much out there about these that I know about. But from reading the back and taking it apart, and the little info I can find, this amp can technically put out 30w continuously, it has a 15 inch speaker (which is most likely made by CTS, quite nice back in the day), and it was made in Kansas. Now when I said this thing is rated for 30w, it doesn't feel like it, it can get loud real quick. This thing is an unexpected beast. It's great for jamming with friends in a garage or for small to medium shows. The only problems with it are that the mid pot is scratchy, and the treble knob (which is not original) likes to come off when you pull for the bright. Nothing a little krazy or super glue won't fix. Although this is a bit heavy, it's made from plywood and it is from the 70's, so it's durable and worth it. Recently got back from getting new transistors, and has had the plug replaced with a beefier one.

I'm looking to get about $150 for this. No trades, I need cash for a rig for college. The only trade I'd consider is something like a Hartke AK410. Music Go Round is selling one of these for $180 right now and I've seen them for for 200 more than once. Please put Kustom in the header of the email so I know it's not spam. Thanks for looking.
