    I just scored a SWR Henry 8x8 for $261. I'm incredibly happy, expecially since my budget was only $300 and I was just HOPING to get a decent 4x10. Now I get a badass Henry, and the best part is: NO SHIPPING COSTS, the guy lives just a couple of hours away.

    My joy...
  2. I'd say you got a hell of a deal!

    O.k so now you are officially hated by everyone here. No just kidding, you're unofficially hated by everyone here. No seriously just kidding. That's a great deal. Congrats. I bet your neighbors are gonna be lovin' you :D

    Yep, you're hated. 'Fraid it's true. :D ;)
    Nice score on that one...I've been looking into them lately, look like some mighty fine cabs.
  6. That's a good price considering the described condition. Just make sure that you don't pay for it until you see it and play through it to make sure ALL 8 speakers work. I'd be cautious of his negative feedback status. The 8x8 is a great cab.

    Yeah, I'm not worried about the negative feedback, since I'll be picking it up in person. If it looks like crap, I just won't pay the dude. I appreciate your jealousy! LOL... It was just dumb luck. I actually did a search for SWR instead of just browsing and this thing popped up, dude should have listed it under amps...probably would have got almost double of what I bid.

    Here's more fuel to make you hate me. In order to justify getting this cab, I decided to sell my Workingman's 2x12 (yes, they did exist at one point) on ebay. Set a Buy it Now for $275, hoping someone would overbid. Within 24 hours...it's been sold. So...basically I'm trading in a decent cab for a "pro" AND making $14. I'd hate me too.

    Next up: Gonna sell my 5string Schecter DeLeo and get a 4 string...Hope my luck lasts!

    Picked it up today, and...It's perfect. this thing looks brand new. Love the sound, didn't think it would have this much bottom. Now all I have to do is find a decent power amp for cheap.
