Hi, I've played guitar for a while but my band recently found a guitarist who is way more awesome than me and we all mutually decided (no hard feelings, i wanted to buy a bass rig anyway but couldn't think of an excuse to drop $500+) that it would be better for us to have a guitarist and a bassist instead of a lead and rhythm guitar thing going on. I took a gamble on ebay and did pretty well, I bought a 2 year old Standard Jazz V+case for 250 in 2 year old condition (just a couple little scratches on the back not beat up by any means). Anyway now I need an amp..I was going to buy an SWR LA15 new (299/free shipping music123.com) but did some research and it seems the Ampeg BA-115 would be a bit more awesomer and better made (not to say swr stuff is crappy its just you know lower end stuff often doesnt get the same constuction quality as the thousand dollar stuff) yet a little higher priced. Soo, i watched ebay auctions, one went for like 360 something i think, and another went for 303ish (plus shipping on both), but i saw one in the paper for 275 (glad i didnt get one on ebay...). I called the guy, its been used in a church for 2 years, never really even moved in 2 years, and he said he'd take 250. Seem like a deal to you guys for a first bass amp? it seems reasonable to me, but I'm going to check it out tommorow (long drive). Anyone had an experience with the amp (particularly bad experience?) Thanks for your time and I hope I can become a regular on the forum .
