Up for sale, a 1963 Magnatone Custom M6 in excellent condition and in good working order. This Magnatone/Estey amp was produced only from mid 1963-64, and features the quintessential Magnatone sound and true pitch vibrato. This two channel amp delivers a dynamic and warm clean tone that quickly saturates into smooth tube overdrive as you turn up the volume dial. The varistor vibrato is the same design used in earlier top-tier Magnatone models and it has a dimension and depth that no other vibrato can match! Rated at roughly 25 watts with a pair of vintage Sylvania 7189 power tubes, this amp is voiced through a single Oxford 12 speaker. This M6 is a particularly clean example, with the short-lived yet very sturdy wood reinforced plastic cabinet. The steel chassis for the preamp is connected to the overbuilt amp handle, and the preamp is very tech friendly, point-to-point wired and accessible by removing only two bolts on either side of the chassis. Featuring original gold sparkle grillcloth and gold accents, the M6 is a real looker with a Magnatone “M” that lights up on the top of the amp when in operation. The circuit is very original, with stock CTS pots that date to late’61, the original blue molded Ajax tone caps and untouched solder joints. The transformers are original as well. The amp features a nice selection of vintage preamp tubes along with a matched pair of Sylvania 7189 power tubes (same pin out and similar tonal characteristics to an EL84, but able to generate higher plate voltages). The alnico Oxford 12K5 speaker is original, sound great, and dates to the 38th week of 1963. Cosmetically, this Magnatone is very clean. The faceplate shows some light wear and the gold caps on the knobs are missing, although all of the original knobs are intact. There is also a tiny amount of surface rust in a couple spots on the faceplate and a few scuffs on the cab, but as the photos show, there is no serious or structural wear of any kind. This amp has been well cared for over the past 50+ years. Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions!
