For sale add... Is this a joke?

    I found this add today and laughed out loud. I thought, this must be a joke. I have no affiliation with the seller.

    Look at the other pics. I find nothing joke-worthy about it...

    I might give him $170 for it, that cab is totally beat up.

    .....or 'add' and 'ad' too. :ninja:

    No way would I buy a cab that's been abused like that.

    It'd better be....sadly it's not. I need to look into that triple-porting thing so I too can make my hair blow backwards (resident long-hair of the band here). That must be that giant sucking sound you hear as the cones move inward.

    $2000+ msrp? Get this one for 17something? The only place I've seen prices like that is the little Gibson store at Opryland Nashville where every single item, including the Epiphone line, all the way down to my Valve Jr. is priced at least double or more of what they go everywhere else in the country.

    I don't just walk away from deals like that, I take the extra time to tell them exactly where they can stick it and why.

    Bad joke indeed.

    Did a brand new Megoliath even sell for $1700?

    Maybe some vintage snob will buy it up and rave about its "mojo".

    he's pretty modest with his "some tour wear"
    :eek:



    slightly off topic, in his ad he says "because we have been endorsed by a different amp company"
    at worst, what kind of prices are sponsors getting?
    recently i bought gear off someone who switched sponsor and I'm certain what he was unloading he sold because he could make a few $$ off the resale. it really irked me.
    any guesstimates on % of MRSP, or % of street price?
