Please carefully read my description and check out the photos BEFORE asking questions or bidding.

This is one of the most sought classic vintage electric guitar amplifiers.  It's the Traynor YBA-3.  It's just out of the service shop where it got a new rear jack, fresh pilot lamps, bias carefully adjusted for the EL34 output tubes to minimize crossover distortion, all pots cleaned along with all vacuum tube sockets and power measured at 100 watts RMS with minimal distortion.   This amp shows obvious wear and tear, especially to the protective trim around the ends but the case is solid, the amp works great and it sounds terrific.   If you want that classic 60's blues/rock sound, you really need a period amplifier like this!     One plastic control knob has been replaced knob that differs in appearance.  The factory included a schematic diagram of this amplifier inside the case but my tech removed it to protect it from the heat so it will ship with the unit in an envelope for your files and any possible future service.      You are welcome to bring your axe and speaker cabinet and audition this amp before purchase and/or to pick it up and avoid the substantial cost of shipping imposed by its 60 lb. shipping weight.  

         Shipping quotation is for ONLY lower 48 state street address acceptable to UPS.  If you can't furnish one, please refrain from purchase.  Canadians are welcome to purchase if they intend to either pick the item up from me in Keene, NH or have me ship to someone in the lower 48 from whom they can pick it up to take home.

Please read a sampling of my extraordinary feedback and then bid with confidence.

are always welcome but please read the entire description before asking. The answer is probably in the description. If you wish to communicate with me AFTER the auction ends, please include your email address in your question because eBay messge forwarding will NOT allow me to reply after the auction has closed. Please use "
ask seller a question" link above for brief questions and feel free to call me at 603-357-5040 during the day with longer questions or those requiring complex answers.   As a licensed auctioneer, I sell a wide range of items but my expertise is in consumer electronics and antiques, so please bear with me if my description of items outside those areas are weaker.  

I make every effort to treat others as I  wish to be treated.  Here are my rules and terms:
    I Guarantee items to match the description.  Items that differ substantially from the description may be returned at buyer's expense for refund of BID price ONLY.
     Items that substantially match the description but NOT the buyer's expectations MAY NOT be returned.  

      I make every effort to describe items accurately and completely and to be conservative in my claims.   Some items, like auto stereo components may NOT be returned once the package has been opened and items described as NEW and that qualify for manufacturer's warranty may NOT be returned but should be delivered to manufacturer or manufacturer's authorized warranty service facility for repair in the event of failure during the warranty period.  If you request it, I will furnish a retail bill of sale to support your warranty claim.

    I NEVER charge "handling charges" or any other bogus added fees or Sales Tax.  My "shipping" charges DO include cost of packing material and are averaged so a few buyers pay less than my actual cost, and a few somewhat more.  

for lower 48 by my choice of delivery method are quoted at the Bottom of the page.  I assume buyer will be on the opposite coast when I estimate shipping and reserve the right to charge less if buyer is much closer.   Shipping to Alaska and Hawaii are usually higher so please ask for quotation before bidding.
Item may be picked up at Interface, 660 Main Street, Keene, NH 03431 except in auctions of items so large or heavy that they are retained by the owner. In those cases, payment is made to me but pickup is from location of item. Location and instructions for getting there will be furnished to winner.  If you Pick the item up  NO shipping charges or sales tax will be due.

:  I prefer to ship lightweight items by mail and heavier items by UPS ground for lowest cost but will entertain requests to ship by other methods if buyer is willing to pay the additional cost.     UPS requires a street address and will NOT deliver to a PO box so buyers lacking a street address may have to pay additional cost for delivery by mail. (and insurance, if desired)
 International shipments are usually shipped by parcel post (lowest cost) and buyer has the option of air or surface transport. Very lightweight items are always mailed via Air Mail.  Postal rules limit weight and box size and vary by destination country, so some items MUST be shipped by commercial shipper.  In those cases I utilize UPS.   I'll be happy to quote shipping outside the lower 48 on request.  


    I pack professionally using sturdy cartons, padded envelopes, and ample quantities of foam peanuts and/or bubble wrap to insure that items I ship arrive undamaged and so have VERY few items damaged in shipping.  I double box high value items to conceal the contents from prying eyes.  When practical, I re-use packing materials in an effort to minimize environmental impact and keep material cost down.
     Postal insurance is expensive so I don't insure low value items (under $100)  shipped by parcel post but UPS provides free insurance for the first hundred dollars value so I ALWAYS insure items shipped by UPS.
      I offer the option of insurance to international customers who request it and are willing to pay the additional cost.

                                                        Payment Options
I offer a wide range of payment options including:

  Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover charge cards and PAYPAL (Both bank and card funded), EFT.  EFT payment must be received at least 3 days prior to picking up item. If you have any questions about these terms, please call or email me.
    Customers in the United States and Canadian  wishing to  pay with a charge card, may call me with card information subject to the condition that the shipping address furnished MUST match the billing address for the card.  
I will NOT ship to an address differing from the billing address.
    International customers (except Canadians) must pay with either EFT or by PayPal.  Of course, I accept US cash for items picked up but NOT for items shipped, in accordance with eBay rules.
    I do NOT accept COD orders.
    Items paid for with secured funds will normally be shipped on the 1st business day following receipt of funds. Items paid for by EFT will ship 3 days after receipt of funds by my bank.
