    Hey ampeg lovers,

    http://www.craigslist.org/pen/msg/41004465.html


    I think this is one of those "skunkworks" ampegs that i hear ppl looking for. might want to check with kingofamps, or another ampeg expert. (not me. i just bought my first ampeg yesterday)

    i am not affiliated with the person selling, just passing it along for those of you not in sf.

    Yep, another one of them.
     
  4. Is this the same as this amp?

    Sombody's selling this thing, would this be a better purchase than a new SVT-CL or SVT-2PRO? (I've been looking into these 2 heads for my new rig)
     
  5. That is the same amp, and yes it would sound much better than a SVT-CL or 2 Pro IMHO.

    Just FYI--there was an Ebay auction 1-2 months ago with #001 of 500 (still in great shpae) and it ended up going for, if I recall correctly, $1270. I didn't look to see what this one's going for, but I thought I'd throw that out there for your information. I've also heard that in Europe these things can get up to the $3000-$3500 range.

    Holy crap! $800?

    Do it. You could get it totally serviced and re-tubed and still make money on it.
