What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

Amp has a scuff on the back that is visible in photos, rest of the amp is in great shape.

The latest creation from the mastermind of Steve Carr and Carr Amplifiers! A gorgeous, chimey clean channel combined with a smooth, organic overdrive channel makes this a killer versatile hand-wired amp. Built about 25 miles from our shop, we are huge fans of Carr and love the tone and overall construction of their amps. 

If you're looking for a great dual-channel amp with chimey cleans and creamy overdrive at a reasonable volume, with a dreamy 2-channel spring reverb included, this is the amp for you! Feel free to call the shop to get more info on this amazing amp!

Manufacturer's Description from Carr

The Lincoln concept started with a mint 1964 AC10 purchased from a collector in England.  There is a vibe - an attitude - a nagging simplicity to this semi-obscure amp.  So the journey began.  The Lincoln embraces the simple Lone Wolf vibe yet goes so much further with ultra expanded tonal range and the convenience of channel switching. Sparkling cleans to heavy overdrive all at the tap of a toe. Lush reverb available on both channels and a two position attenuator for the full 18 giggable watts or a house trained 6.

About Manufacturer

Like you, all of us at Carr Amplifiers are guitarists. We share your love of the guitar, and we feel very fortunate to build amplifiers for a living at our shop in Pittsboro, North Carolina. And although we are understandably proud of our unique circuit designs, meticulous point-to-point construction, premium components and hand-crafted cabinets, our success has ultimately been the result of one simple fact; discerning guitarists continue to enthusiastically embrace the tone, reliability and versatile nature of our amplifiers. Perhaps it's because we view guitar amps as being as much an instrument as the guitar itself, and we truly believe that an amplifier should become a personal extension of every player. To that end, we strive to design and build amps with a distinct character and sonic personality, and the flexibility and practical features that will inspire you to create your very own signature sound at volume levels appropriate for home, studio and stage.
