I just received a Ampeg B15R. This amp has some history. It was owned by Jess Oliver of Ampeg. (I have paper work with amp) Jess consulted on the making of the B15R. This bass was sent to him by Ampeg when they came out. (it's #17) For Jess to go over, and comment. It is dead mint and never left Jess Olivers home. ( Jess never used it) The seller I bought it from, got it from Jess, and used it twice. It was to heavy for him to use for gigs. It is dead mint, with less than 10 hours use. Until UPS got there hand on it. The bass was packed great, and due to poor handling by UPS Amp was upside down on truck, off casters when I recieved it. And driver was flipping over amp to back of truck. ( I personally seen this) They caused about $300 worth of damage to amp. I filed a claim, and they did an over the phone claim. Seller just called me, and said, they rejected claim, do to poor packing on his part. How can they make judgement without seeing amp or package. I assume they just refuse ever claim hoping some people give up? What can I do to get my insurance money !!!!HELP!!!!! UPS was happy to take my $125.00 for shipping, plus insurance money. Any legal Dudes out there?
