Oh< you did say BF, I think the prices at the show for BF models started at about $1200 up.

I had a customer bring an average condition BF 65 Super Reverb in to me last week for a refurb.
It was in need of everything including 4 speakers.
He paid $1800.00 as is and was satisfied after the cost of repairs and speakers, it was "the amp" for him.
Sorry guys but the days of $1000.00 to $1200 BF Super Reverbs is OVER.
Sure, you might find a gronk in a local garage sale but anyone paying any attention is not going to be giving those away anymore.
I think that goes for ANY collectable old tube guitar amp.

Don't give up hope Bruce! A buddy of mine just picked up a mint '69 Deluxe Rev footswitch and all for $50.00. Deals still happen, yet you're right that most people "know" what they've got.

I am wondering if the prices for various BF or SF Fenders vary by what part of the country you are in. $1,800 for an amp in that kind of shape seems real high, even for a BF Super.

The prices definitely are regional.....in South Florida where I live people who know what they've got are charging big bucks for old amps.

You can definitely build one from scratch for less.
It only gets really expensive if you a) demand clone
cosmetics, b) pay someone else for any of the labor.

I am currently building a blonde BFSR. Just need to get off me arse and make the board.
I have built all of the mechanicals (cabinet, chassis etc.) and I will probably be about $11-1200 into it when I am done. All of the handles, corners etc are fender replacement, but I skipped on the knobs and used chicken heads. I couldn't see spending $10 for a pack of 6
And I won't feel guilty about tweaking it to my taste!
