I am only asking 700 because you can only use the graphic EQ. If you engage the knob EQ's it will kick in a constant hiss. This does not make this amp unusable in any way. And it is only a year old and still carries a transferrable warranty of 5 years. I even live in St. Louis where I could get this fixed under warranty at Ampeg, but do not have time. My loss is your gain. Have it fixed or just use the graphic EQ and you can have an extremely powerful and versatile amp for only 700 bucks.
