Got this new not too long ago- maybe two months. Just used at home for practice. Works perfect; nothing wrong with it. selling stuff to fund other purchases. 30 Pin dock connections works much better than iRig and the other interfaces that go through the 3.5mm earphone/mic combo jack. Reviewed and compared to the iRig and AmpKit in Tom Bowlus' Bass Gear Magazine issue no. 7. No original packaging but I'm fairly sure it was just the cardboard hang tag and zip/twist ties. I don't think there is a user manual but the cable is pretty self explanatory and the picture on the manufacturer's website pretty much sums it up. Photo in a later post above. These are selling for $60 new...get this like new one from me for $50 shipped CONUS via USPS Priority Mail OBO.
