Bo Diddley-Owned 100w Marshall Super Bass Amp on eBay
This red 100w Super Bass head and 4 x 12 slant cabinet is apparently from 1969 or 1970, and bears Bo's signature on the head's top.
At a Buy It Now of a buck shy of 10 grand, this amp is being priced as an authentic piece formerly owned by a rock n' roll legend and Hall of Famer.
But Bo Diddley and other guitarists of his generation used to play on a lot of rental equipment on the road. And you don't want to be saddled with what could possibly be just a rental amp that bears his signature. Ask for the necessary letters of provenance before committing. I'm just sayin'..
