Bought this for $695 when The Bass Place was closing them out (http://reverb.com/item/22265-gena-be...emax-12-2-2012
Took it out of the box, played it next to my TC RH450 for about 15 minutes, and put it back in the box. Power cord and footswitch were never removed from the box. Great sounding amp, but I'm sticking with my RH450 because of the built in tuner and 4-band parametric EW (Shuttlemax has High and Low + 2 band parametric midrange), and I don't really need the extra power the 12.2 provides.
$595 shipped in the original box with all paperwork. You won't be able to tell that this isn't a brand new amp.
