Hi Guy's,could you please help ?. Im thinking of selling my Acoustic corporation rig,can enbody give me an idea what she's worth ?. The head is 9/10 condition + 308 with 4- 15'S is a monster + original footswitch which is very rare !!!!!!! these beast's have monster tones, and the power to back it. I don't wonder the likes of John Paul Jones- Jaco Pastorious- Stanley Clarke used them. So what do you think id get for such a rare beast ?

Don't know what it's worth, but I suspect quite a lot. Those amps were bone-eating monsters with enough power to blow down walls. One seldom sees that pair in that kind of condition any more.

These old rigs are mainly worth something to collectors, as most players are just not willing to lug such huge stuff around these days. Here is a link to an Acoustic 320 head and 408 bottom to look at.

I would not think this set would be as collectable as a 360 set or 370 set (I might actually go for a pristine 360 preamp and bottom, to just to sit and look at it, but I have turned down chances before, as old caps and huge cabinets of single 3" voice coiled Cerwin Vega speakers do not really get me that excited any more). I did see a set of the 320/408's being sold recently for $700, but who knows if it sold or not, and England has its own market prices for American vintage equipment, which I do not keep up on.

Many years ago I picked up an Acoustic 360 preamp top . The power amp was located in the speaker bottom on those units. I connected the Acoustic 360 preamp to a Crown DC300 power amp and 2 Alembic A15's with JBL K140's and I was not really that impressed by what I heard from the 360 preamp at that time. I liked the preamp out from my Dual Showman better back then.I traded the 360 shortly there after for some other gear. Jaco used those 360's but I think Jaco would be awesome through almost anything.
