    I finally got the Mesa 400+ that I purchased off of ebay. It was an great buy. I got it for $705.00 with the shock mount rack. It is in better shape than I ever expected.It has all the tone and volume I will ever need. It is awesome. The push pull knobs are my favorite thing about it. I have only had the chance to play it a few hours. I would do a comparison between it and my Ampeg B2R but the Solid State Ampeg isnt even in the same league. I am very happy with it. I will tell you more after I get it with a Guitar and drums later in the week.

    Nice deal man, I've been watching prices on ebay and seen 400+ up to about $1000.

    4 months old
    5 year transfereble warranty
    brand new 4 space gator shock case
    pedal for eq

    Sweet. I'd say you got a great deal.

    I'm picking mine up next weekend! 850 w/hsc- 3 years old. :hyper:

    These things seem to be all the rage these days. They're really a fantastic value for an all tube tone monster.

    No the one I bought was the one from Ohio with the Mesa no shock rack. The auction ended 7/10/05. The guy said it was as is when you buy it and I think that scared everyone. The guy had sold a lot of musical equipment on ebay and had a perfect record so I e-mailed and talked to him on the phone and took a chance. It worked out good. I have been playing through it this morning. I love it. There was another one that sold the next day that sold for the same price. There was 5 of them on there at the same time and a couple of them was still under warranty and I think that hurt the older ones. But it helped me.

    yeah when i did a search last week there was a few up there.

    funny thing was, i made an add on here wanting to trade my music man for a 400+. i actually had a few people private message me. one of them was a kick ass deal for a lsamming price, but it was old. the other one, was a good deal as well, and it was brand new, so i just took the brand new one. i almost picked up with one with the plexi glass custom top, but then realized it was a 400, not the plus.

    im sure the other guy isstill selling this, so if anyone is interested, i can suply his uder name and you can talk to him.

    I have a 400 I got off ebay last year for the BIN price of $450. I took a big chance as it only had one power tube in it, but it works fine!
