Hello. The K200-B4 is a guitar amp (with the tremolo, vibrato, selective boost, and harmonic clipper), but if you have the effects turned off (or on if you're dangerous haha) you can use it for bass, it only depends on what kind of speakers are in the cabinet (and Kusotm offered a rather wide selection). I'll assume since it is a guitar head, it's also a guitar cabinet. Look through the literature section of the website and you should find your amp somewhere. Kustom made a few different cabs with three speakers, there were 3x15", either with three regular speakers or two speakers and a huge police siren, or a 3x12". I believe there was a post from a long time ago where someone had put up a serial number chart, if you do a search, you may find it, otherwise someone else on the forum may know. It most likely is from between 1967 and 1970 or so however. Good luck and welcome to the forum!

thanks very much for the reply.i wasn't sure on the amp and no one in the band knew either .the bass man has a peavey 1516 bass enclosure he wanted to try but didn't have an amp head for it .we hooked it up this afternoon and man that thing rocked. it may be a guitar head but it sure has some deep lows and volume out of this world ..this is the first kustom i have ever had any experience with .i bought it a few years ago just because of the eye catching appeal it has and because it was so clean, but had never used it. after practice today it looks as though it's going in the trailer for gigs now .we didn't use the kustom cabinet but it has 3 15's. the old amp and cabinet are both in pretty much mint other than one handle has the plastic gone ..the whole band was amazed at the way it sounded so i guess you never know what you can switch around to get a good sound.. thanks again for the info..
