: I found a Polytone guitar amp at our local Goodwill. It came with a cover, is very large, very heavy (I cannot pick it up) has wheels on it, a place on the back says "Model 104" and "180 watts". Made in Hollywood, Cal. It has a fuzzy red "polytone" logo on the front It looks to be 25-35 yearls old, it has a '60'-70's Brady Bunch look to it (sorry, but that's about the only way to describe it) I am from the bluegrass camp, I bought this to resell and fund my pre-war Gibson banjo habit, if anyone has any info on these, value, etc. I would appreciate it very much, I can find nothing on the web about them. THANKS!

Re: Polytone Model 104 Guitar Amplifier

I also have one...have been using it for keyboards for 25 years...just had it reconed and put real speaker grills on it about two years ago, but it still cranks.

George Benson made these famous...(see ad at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=910251255 ). They were also called the 'Joe Pass Special' at the time I bought mine.
