    My Eden WT-300 amp. List 1300ish I believe. My price? About 450. Less. I got it used at a pawn shop. The word used is a little strong. More like bubble wrap was removed. Mint freaking condition. Along with a 410XLT for only 849 (approx.)
     
  5. Bass - paid $1,700 w/ hard case.

  8. :eek: That's like 3 times all my bass gear put together!

    My most expensive item is my Fender MIA P-Bass which I got for 300 bucks with case. My Genz Benz 135-watt combo w/15 inch speaker cost around the same price.

    I guess R/A #115 at $1500 (the "old" price).

    The double (w/custom gig bag & added "touches") will be
    more than twice that. Oh crap! Can't forget shipping :rolleyes:.

    Who needs a Casady? :p
     
  10. My SWR Mo' Bass 350 watt head. It was $950 on sale.

    The 4x12 cab would be worth more if it was actually made by a company and not by me.:D Righ now it's worth about $380, at $95 per speaker.

    Then the BFX100, at $360, also on sale, and then the Bassman 60, at $320, also on sale. God do I love sales!!

    Rock on

    My amp. Bought it used for SEK 7,000 (around US $700). I think it cost two times that new.

    I paid about $750 used, mint for my L2500 and about the same for the MIA JD5.

    Not bass-related, I paid $2000 for my Gibson 100 Anniversary Jumbo accoustic guitar.
