    They are pretty rare. It is a Godin Artisan TC Signiture Model from around 1991. Handmade in Canada. With Robert Godins signiture on the back and AAA. Neck is beautifull Birds Eye Maple. Can't find a Serial # on it must be in the neck pocket. If this Guitar had a Fender or Gibson label on it it would be a 2-$3000 Custom Shop Guitar.

    Beautiful Godins. I contemplated buying one back in the day. Who makes the cab?

    hello there, for those interested in restoration of an old traynor, i have an original output transformer from a bassmaster yba-1. nice full lead lengths so it should fit fine. codes on top are "a 1312" and "92105". has the "h" on there as well so i guess that stands for hammond. removed from a working amp that was modded. $50 takes it. you may email me at [email protected] thanks rh

    TS-25 1x12 guitar amp with gain and reverb. Ive owned it about 20 plus years and still use it and loved to record with it because of the line out. Ive gotten some good sounds out of it with some different speakers as well.

    YCV 50 Blue. I recently started using this amp at gigs. It's replacing my Blues Jr. and I really like the different timbre of this amp. The Jr. just sounds a little small and boxy in the rooms we play. Cuts through and sounds more British than my Fender. Go Canucks!

    At long last I was able to get my hands on a YBA, a YBA-1A MkII to be exact, and what a story it has to tell:eek:. It's been played coast to coast, it's been in more bars than 10 bar flies could muster in 10 lifetimes, it's been stolen and recovered, it has spent the last 17 years in the gig space of a one eyed drummer for use in powering a PA.

    You want mojo, we'ze got it growing inside:eek::eek::eek:

    I just recently discovered Traynor amps and was lucky enough to check out, and then acquire, an old YRM-1. It's currently my favorite amp - I absolutely love this thing!
    Built like tanks and sound great - next on my list is a YBA!!!

    My first big amp was a 70's Bassmaster with a twin 15 cab. Brother, that was heavy. Hauled it around in my 69 Polara 500. More recently I've owned the YCV40 andthe 80 2X12 that I loaded with V30's. Sounded great, but ended up being too much amp.

    Any one else have one of the YBA beasts?

    This is my YBA-1A mkII with its 4x12 cab, still rock'n after all these years.

    Can anyone suggest what speakers my ygl-3 probably has (I am assuming they are stock), looking at the serial no: it actually turns out to be a 1979 model. I was under the impression they would be Marslands but according to the Traynor website the ygl-3s were fitted with Eminence. Just wondering if the year of production makes any difference?!?!

    I bought this Yba-1 for $250 today!!! Mint insides, no mods. Sounds unbelievable. Came with Philips 12ax7s and GE 6550 tubes.

    Great score Bohdan, life is good in the land of Traynor.

    Are those twist on wire connectors for the power cord? If so, you might want to solder them in.

    Thanks DW! The bass player I play with plays with a YBA1a also. Sounds unreal through his 2x15.
    Yeah, they're twists for right now. I'll do them right before I gig with it.

    Great Amp. Love them. But please get rid of some of the dust.
