Last week I decided to kill some time on my way down to see a client for work so as I often do, I stopped in to Guitar Center and poke around. I was floored to see an Epifani UL502 tagged at $450. I checked it out and everything worked fine and it sounded great. I left without it, however but couldn't stop thinking about it. I wondered if it came with the footswitch and if not, I was curious if is be able to locate one. So the next day I called GC and asked if it came with the foot controller and the after checking, the sales guy came back and said that it wasn't with it. No big deal, I thought but it never hurts to ask if they could come down on the already ridiculously low price. He said he had to ask his manager and would call me back. So I waited for his call, thinking there's no way they would budge on that price. He called me back a half hour later and told me since it didn't have the foot switch his manager said he could let me have it for $350 instead of $450!!! I thought I was hearing things but blurted out "I'm on my way!!!". So I played it the very next night at a gig and I am now in love with this amp. The icing on the cake was finding a used foot switch for $40 which is on its way. Sorry for being so long winded but I'm just beaming over scoring this killer amp. Sometimes it seems like if it doesn't say Fender, Gibson, or Ibanez, it seems like they don't know what to do with it. Whatever the situation, I AM STOKED!!!
