JBL marketed the L77 Lancer from around 1964 to 1971. The L77 cost $156 each in 1964. MSRP was $198 each when it was discontinued in 1971. I picked up a pair about a year ago locally. I traded straight up for a pair of 2371 horns with 2416H-1 drivers. The cabinets were in great shape with a few minor scuffs. One of ther LE10A's had been reconed, the rest of the drivers had new surrounds. L77's don't get a ton of respect on the used market. You can pick them up on eBay in the $125 to $250 a pair range.

I had a really nice pair last year. I had a hard time selling them, not alot of interest. They sounded best on stands on their side with the tweet at the top IMHO
