Buying a used head . . . what to ask

  1. I have a line on a used GK 700RB-II, which I've heard great things about. This one has seen very limited use. Are there any questions that I should definitely ask prior to buying this amp? I have contacted the seller and asked him if he is the original owner, how long he's owned it, if it ever incured any damage (dropped, liquid spilled on it, etc). I just want to make sure I'm covering my butt. Thanks for the help.

    You have a duplicate thread.
     
  4. Sort of. I asked this as a general question before posting the one about the GK. Since no answered the general thread, I needed to try again. Sorry if caused any issues. Thanks for the help.
     
  5. its not an issue, people are just anal about it because they dont think the mods can handle doing their jobs apprently

    if there are tubes, ask if they are new, ask the obvious questions.. perhaps a dated proof of purchase..

    youre pretty much at their mercy though..

    How will you pack it? Thats one I always ask.

    Make sure you insure it for the cost of a new head too.
     
  7. Pack for shipping? Well I hope I don't have to use that option as I don't live all the far from where the amp is located. I'm hoping the seller will consider meeting up somewhere. Trying to save as much scratch as possible.
