No gut shots, but looks pretty decent on the exterior...

Not mine, no clue who the seller is... but, oh, man... wish I had the coin to experience that amp.

Why is it that AC50 seem to sell for about 1/2 of what AC30s sell for?
I mean, the Beatles connection is just as strong as the AC30, yet they seem to not command the financial respect that their smaller brother does...?
I have an AC50 here, and man what a distinctive sound that thing puts out... :shock:
Undervalued, me thinks...

New owner would HAVE to take it to a tech (unless they are a tech...) and the ad says original wiring so one assumes quite a few bits and pieces would have to be replaced. And the old power and speaker jacks would, I assume, need replacing.

Don't think the work would double the price... but I have no clue what "gotchas" might be disclosed when the shell is cracked open to reveal the guts. If I were in the hunt for this amp I'd ask for gut shots, but unless someone drops a bag of cash on my front porch tonight, I am just a dreamer drooling on the sidelines. Not going to bother the seller for gut shots when there's no chance of me buying.

I envy your ownership of an AC-50; keep enjoying it!

The amp looks nice enough. Most likely, if it is still operating and he states that it is, it would not bee all that much to go thru the amp, recap the electrolytics and give it a tune up. AC50s are not class A....they are AB. I am an hour and a half north of Atlanta and played the Atlanta scene for many years. Another member asked me if I knew this person and to my knowledge I do not.
