1971 Coleman & Crate Acoustic Guitar Amp

Coleman isn’t typically a brand you think of when you say guitar amp, but it was definitely the first thing we thought of when we stumbled across this gem on Craigslist.


The original owner said he first used it in April of 1971! This 45 year old metal Coleman ice chest, in all of its red and cream glory, had certainly passed its prime for dispensing cold drinks, and it was due a new lease on life.


This is definitely the amp you want to play at the next bonfire, picnic or venue that is needing that acoustic sound. You literally can’t get any “cooler” than this.
