    Within the week ill have saved up $1100 for the sweet, sweet necture that is the ampeg classic. Im looking on ebay, but also concidering going into guitar center (with cash) and making an offer. Any suggestions on what to offer them? They go for $1499 i believe.
  2. Yeah, Get a used Mesa 400+ for $800. and keep the rest toward a killer cab. Read some threads about the newer SVTs as opposed to the older ones.

    Even better yet spend your cash on a vintage SVT from the 70s.

    I got a brand new SVT CL for $1200 from GC. I saw one used recently at another GC in the area for like $800.

    portland, or
    Walk into GC with $1000 in cash two hours before closing and stand your ground. Also make sure they dont pawn off a beat up floor model. This worked for me on my SVT and I love it.
