AD-5 #053 Signed A.G. Emsley

Post by GregU » Mon Aug 15, 2016 1:28 am

I have an AD-5 that is signed in black marker in script. I know it was bought at Rudy's in NYC. The writing is inside the amp.
I think it something special. Can anyone let me know what I have?
It was given to me from a guitar teacher who had a student that gave it to him.
Thanks!
Its a great sounding small amp.

I can't get the picture to upload. I've tried a jpeg and a tiff file. Suggestions?

Here's some info from the Orange website: https://orangeamps.com/heritage/legacy- ... mited-run/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The custom shop amps signed by Ade are extremely rare. Hard to put a value to them because you almost never see them for sale. I have seen a couple on eBay but they never sold because they were way too pricey. Something like 1600 US dollars as I recall.

Cool little collectable amp!

Wow! One of 60. That's amazing. Thanks for the information.
It's interesting when it comes to putting a dollar amount on this amp. In reality the amp is worth what people are willing to pay for it (obviously). 1600.00 is pretty high. I would sell for that price!
