  1. Marshall 3540 Integrated Bass System Head 2 x 200W which can be joined to create a 400W amp (you always wanted that power) or used to drive bass and mid range speaker cabinets. Not as clean acoustically or externally as on the day Jim made it but it works and is loud. There maybe some improvement to both for the auction. Find out more about this amp on this link (aka read the manual):

  2. Höfner 185 “Artist Bass” 1964 serial no. 2186. The serial number means it was imported by the Selmer Company of London. It has twin pickups with on/off switches. Tone and Volume controls for each pickup.

    This guitar has been restored and is in good working order. It has a new Höfner label on the head but the rest is original. The solid body does look a bit too good to be true but perhaps it has been sitting a cupboard for 50 years waiting for you! £180-250
