CUSTOM AUDIO AMPLIFIERS CAA 3+SE ( + ITS FOOTSWITCH) - THE "ORIGINAL" AND VERY RARE!!!

THIS IS A VERY RARE UNIT MADE IN 1999 WITH SERIAL NUMBER: 9903798.

IT IS THE 798TH UNIT EVER MADE. IN FACT BETWEEN 1997 AND 2003 ONLY 150 UNTITS WERE MADE AND THE LAST NUMBER WAS 820.

THIS MODEL WAS MADE BETWEEN 1991 AND 2003 BY ROBERT BRADSHOW AND JOHN SUHR. THEIR NAMES ARE PRINTED ON THE INSIDE GREEN BOARD.

BETWEEN 1991 AND 2003 THEY MADE THREE VERSIONS, ALMOST INDENTICAL WITH SOME LIGHT DIFFERENCES AND THE FRONT PANELS HAD ALSO DIFFERENT TONES OF SILVER COLOR. THOSE ARE CONSIDERED TO BE THE "ORIGINALS"  AND SOUGHT AFTER BY ALL GUITARISTS TODAY.

AFTER 2004, JOHN SUHR WHOSE  MODIFICATIONS MADE THIS MODEL SO DESIRABLE LEFT THE COMPANY. THEN CAE COLLABORATED WITH CAJ ( JAPAN ) WITH DIFFERENT DISTRIBUTORS AND THE PRODUCTION OF THIS MODEL BECAME CONSIDERABLY BIGGER AND DIFFERENT PARTS WERE USED. HENCE THE PRESENT MODELS CANNOT BE COMPARED WITH THE FIRST ORIGINAL SERIES.

CONDITION : EXCELLENT. THE TUBES ARE IN VERY GOOD SHAPE AS WELL. THERE ARE ONLY A FEW LIGHT SCRATCHES AT THE CASE, CAUSED DURING REMOVAL FROM THE RACK AND ALSO ONE SCREW IS MISSING FROM THE TOP COVER. THIS UNIT HAD VERY LITTLE USE IN MY RECORDING STUDIO AND NEVER LEFT IT. IT WAS NEVER GIGGED! NEVER MODIFIED. ALL ORIGINAL.

I HOPE MY DESCRIPTION IS ACCURATE. PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS.

THE PRICE IS : 2,400 EURO + SHIPPING ( Europe : 60 Euro , Everywhere else : 70 Euro ).
