When I say "like new" I mean it. The tube covers were recently removed as it was not played until last year. Never gigged out with this one, way too special. Factory tags still hanging off of the head. You will be hard pressed to find an all tube head that has more PUNCH and power. Move over Ampeg. This is handbuilt in the USA. I am selling because I hurt my back and cannot lug this 70lb head up and down steps per the doctor. I will be downsizing even though getting rid of this is breaking my heart. This is a discontinued Mesa item that is becoming a real collectors item. Mesa Info here: http://www.mesaboogie.com/Product_Info/Out_of _Production/Bass_400_/bass_400_.html There are some new ones left and they are going for $1,699.99 There will be no negotiating, this is a super price and I would rather keep it than give it away for peanuts. It is an investment to keep it. Mesa's bass amps are used by numerous big names, such as Les Claypool, Sir Paul McCartney, Justin Chancellor, Ben Kenney of Incubus, John Campbell of Lamb of God, John Myung of Dream Theater and the late Cliff Burton.
