    Hello, all. I absolutley hate to be the type to make my first post at this forum in the classifieds, but I don't sell much bass gear. I've been playing the same rig since 1998. A friend who owes me money has given me this Ampeg head instead and I can't afford to keep it. I'd love to as it's amazing, but I have been getting by fine with my old Carvin.

    The amp is in excellent condition and includes a new Grundorf flight case/rack. I will sell it for $1000 plus shipping to TalkBass.com members. I realize that I have no cred here, so feel free to look me up on the Bay as "techiepeople", or the G&L board as "wilder". My cell is 214-995-5531.

    Thanks,

    Chris Wilder

    D/FW Area residents can pick this up from me for $950 if interested.

    Thanks,

    $950 shipped or $900 picked up.

    Am I way off on the price of this? The guy who traded it to me showed me an E-bay auction where one brought $950, but if there is a reason I should be asking less please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    You can probably get more for it on eBay than here to be honest. I think the last one that sold here went for about $800. Prices are always higher on eBay.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll probably list it there. If there is a way I can take $800 for it, I'll list it here again.

    Do you still have this? Are you able to go $800?

    I ended up getting $980 for it, but I had to ship it to Italy!

    Thanks,

  9. Congrats on the sale. I just picked up a brand new one for 800$ at Guitar Center in Denver. Said they are discontinuing them as they dont compete with the SVT4-Pro sales, but I love it! Especially for the price!
