GK MB200 Piece Of poo!

I bought this amp at Guitar Center, and it is the worst piece of poopie that I have ever seen!

A completely crooked face-plate, with feet that are different sizes, all screwed in chaotically to boot.

They must be employing 2-year old's on the assembly lines!

You can't employ two year olds for an assembly line in California. Is it a new or used unit

Sheesh! What ever happened to quality?

I believe GC has a return policy.

Did you look at it before you bought it?

Did you try it out before you bought it?

Why did you go through with the purchase?

It was new in a box! But given my luck with GC, I should have!

Well, thanks to this thread, one should properly conclude that every single GK MB200 ever made is garbage.

I'm not sure what I'd have done without this mature and informative response to disappointment.

This what it is supposed to look like:


Can't see how the front panel could be crooked unless it was damaged in shipping?

And if one could be made this bad, how many more could be?

Drilled that way? That is one that should have never made it through QC. Somebody's job is in trouble if that was a California unit.

Is this really a serious thread, or an attempt at humor?
