Any copycat Mesa cabs out there?

    I have found an 810 Mesa cab for an unbelievable price, claims to be brand new and is less than half of the price. Seems a bit too good to be true IMO.

    Just wondering if anyone has heard of any cheap knockoffs, I am going to check out the cab soon so I will find out soon enough anyway.

    If it looks like a genuine cab, has the proper back plate with the Mesa ID, chanced are it is real. They would have to go to a lot of trouble to make a good fake.

    One good question is, are the speakers original.

    Large cabs like that don't really seem to retain their value all that well.

    Re sale of 810 is bad.
    Bad for the seller, good for the buyer.
