I just visited Rockin Robins, my local music store and tried to sell my amp. Unfortunately, 3 weeks earlier the guy that made me a $700 offer on my 750x doesn't work there anymore (the GM I was talking to about it said that was probably why he didn't work there anymore). Anyway, the most I can get for this thing, in the $120 rack it's in, is a little over $500. As I said in a previous thread, the M-Pulse 360 is discontinued, had a $400 price drop down to $700, and there are only around 6 still floating around the U.S. in various Guitar Centers. The guy I was talking to at RRs said he is heavy on SWR stuff and doesn't want to do a cash deal anyway. They don't even carry M/B amps because he says he doesn't like M/B and doesn't trust their lowering of prices. He thinks M/B is downgrading in quality and says I should just buy new pickups (Bartolini is what I would look at) to go with my already "killer" amp. But I am in love with M/B sound and parametric eq. Now, I think that's a load of bull butter because I like Mesa Boogie and have put a lot of research into them and my bass with EMG HZs sounds nice through it. Should I take a dive and spend my $200 of power amp savings and put it toward the M-Pulse 360 or buy new pickups? My birthday is in a couple of months anyway. But if I buy new pickups, I'd be shooting in the dark. What would you guys do?
