Hi guys, new to forum. After a long long time searching, I just purchased a Kustom K150-8 Plexi I think. It's a combo with the 4 speakers. Black.
I would love to have some info on this model, because I don't see it listed in the models on this website.

Hello and welcome to our combined obsession!
You model can be found in this site's literature section .
It's under Other T & C listing and then it's in the SC section.

In good condition that amp outputs a loud 75 watts of clean power into its 4 Alnico magnet 10" drivers.

During this era Kustom add another item to the these amps power supply called a Choke.
This keeps the amp very punchy even when played up into the loud range!
Mine is my go to for recording most any type of clean guitar part if I don't feel like dragging one of my k250s out of the house.

When I first got mine some Ass had put casters on the bottom and that lasted about 2 weeks before I got done with it tipping over all the time!, so if you have a notion to do that , resist!

Thanks for the reply.
So this "is" the model 410-SC in the SC series section. I was confused because the model # on the back said K150-8.
Someone also has put casters on this amp too. I'm waiting for it to be delivered and they will be coming off. The person who picked it up for me said it tipped over real easy.
The serial #59250, according to the info I found here on this site was made between July and Sept 1970.
It still has the original 2 prong plug, would you recommend changing to a 3 prong plug?

You didn't happen to buy this off Craigslist in Kentucky, did you? I only ask because I was looking at one there just yesterday (online, not in person). Asking $350, but too far a drive to be practical for me.

Most important question of all: What color is it?
(Never mind-missed the "Black" Great color!)

The self contained Kustom amps did two versions the K100SC series and the later K150SC series. In both series there are three chassis's. SC K100-8 and the SC K150-8 offered in either the 2x10" or the 4x10" speaker combination. The SC K100-7 and the SC K150-7 offered in the 2x12" speakers.
The SC K100-6 and the SC K150-6 is the single 15" version.
