I've owned this Guild Thunder 1 since 1994, never left the house. Bought used at a garage sale, then had it serviced with new tubes, converted to 3 prong grounded plug, and added a speaker jack to power an external cabinet. The amp is from the 1960's, probably 1965 or 1966. Cosmetically it is in decent shape. Some of the tolex has bubbled up around the handle, with light flaking at the corners, and it could use a general cleaning. The circuit is solid, but the pots might need some cleaning. There is a slight hiss from time to time but otherwise plays.

It is a great amp for anyone learning about fixing or servicing tube amps or who wants a restoration project. $275 obo.
