I have for sale a 1981 Fender Harvard Reverb blackface amplifier. It has a single 10" speaker and built-in spring reverb box module similar to vibrolux etc. This amp seems to be completely original, and is clean, considering its age. All features are in working order and seem to function as intended. Potentiometers and knobs move smoothly and function linearly without dead spots. It has two inputs, a headphone out and a line out, as well as a reverb pedal input. Overall this amp is in very good condition. It may have a few tiny nicks in the tolex, but overall the covering is fully intact. The speaker grille is in good, clean, bright, and tear-free condition with no dents.

I've played around on this amp, and it has a lot to offer in tonal adjustment and power for the price point. Without any effects added, tone ranges from clean to bluesy to rock, low-fi, grunge etc. depending on settings as well as guitar used. This is a vintage solid state amp, meaning it should have high reliability and is good for driving high gain (think metal). Loudness is more than plenty for home, apartment, or gigging in small venues, and I've seen these used as pre-amps as well. I have mostly played this turned pretty far down, as it definitely can project.

$200 buys this amp. I do not need to sell this and I like this amp, so I'll keep it if I can't get that. This price is fair for the rarity and condition of this unit.

I will meet you in a public place in Greater Lafayette or nearby.
I will only accept payment in cash, in full, on delivery, in person.

I may be willing to trade for other items, provided that there is clear value on my end in doing so. I may be interested in other guitars and/or amplifiers, primarily from better brands such as Fender, Gibson, Marshall, Orange, PRS, etc.

Please text. If you cannot, please call and leave a voicemail message.
Thank you for your time and interest.
