    Trace stuff sounds good, but the price seems quite high for one of their SS heads with a cab. It should be quite a bit less.

    +1, too high, but a good rig.

    Recently a GP12 SMX head (12-band pre w/280 watt amp) caught my eye in a pawn shop. The price? $850!!!! I bought the same amp in a 4-10 combo version from a local shop for far, FAR less than that. Maybel I'll low-ball him in a year or so as it will still be there. Trace is good stuff tho...

    How much do you think this stuff should be going for??? I was thinking more along the lines of 500 to 600

    The head is worth $350-$500 depending upon condition. The cab your looking around $250-$350, also depending upon condition.

    I think $800 is a little high if they are not in pristine condition though.

    $500-$600 sounds good to me.
