: : I discovered that a neighbor of mine has a Gibson Super Thor combo amp gathering dust in his basement. He said that he bought it used about 20 years ago. It stands about 4 feet tall, has decent tone, tubes I think. The bottom of the speaker cover is damaged a little from a couple of bored cats. I'd love to have this amp, but it must be somewhat rare. Can anybody guess what this amp is might be worth?

: DBS,
: A Gibson Super Thor? Damn, haven't seen one of *those* in ages!

: The Thor and Super Thor were part of Gibson's early-to-mid 60's offerings; most of them were named after NASA's rockets and satellites, being heavily into the Space Age mindset. :-)

: The Thor and Super Thor were the bass models, needless to say.

: I'm not at all sure what a Super Thor is worth today; I couldn't find *any* listed on Guitar Base (www.gbase.com), and a Google search didn't give me anything that helped figure out a value on that amp. Gibson's amps generally aren't considered as collectable as comparable Fenders, but they're kinda catching on to some degree.

: I'd say that if this amp is in reasonably good condition, it might be worth $200-300, but that's a *very* rough figure, and I wouldn't put that down as a hard-and-fast amount. I'd say that the best thing to do would be to see how much the guy is willing to take for it, to be honest.

: Good luck! Let me know if you get it! :-)
