condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Mesa
model name / number: .50 Caliber +
This is a 1991 Mesa Boogie .50 Caliber + head. It's a 50 Watt head. These old heads are getting quite a bit of attention these days for both their Fender heritage blackface tone on the clean side and their high gain capabilities. It has a built-in reverb. These are basically a stripped down model of the Boogie Mark II. All of the other .50 Caliber + that I've seen have had black grill cloth on the front panel, so this one is rather unique, as it has the figured wood panel - which is stock from the factory.

We would advise you to check out this video from Kyle Bull on this head: https://youtu.be/5d6odHDXRCE?si=FDfwN7y_XpO44ND- He gives a pretty good explanation of how everything works.

This amp is a 33 year old classic, and I have included a picture of the circuitry. It was amazingly built, with SBE orange drops and a lot of carbon comp / tootsie roll resistors in specific areas of the amp. We're firm on the price. It is a pro / collector amp. I've used it on stage as my main amp for a number of gigs.

Would consider trade for a Tele or Strat, or older Fender tube amp - black or silverface pre-1976 of equal value.

If this ad is posted, the amp is still available.

Thanks for looking!
