Ok I have seen threads on this but I want to get a bit more into it. Trace Elliot ah500-7 with a 4 ohm cab and Eminence speakers - $800. A friend of mine was signed by a record company and then spon. by Spector. Lucky guy. Anyway he wrote me and said he had a Trace Elliot ah500-7 "laying around" (sarcasim) and a 4ohm 4x10 cab with Eminence speakers he used to play on stage with Otep and Static X. He is giving me a hella of a deal, this I know. Thing is, I am a young guy, burried in student loans and if I am going to invest into gear I want to make sure it is worth every penny. I hear "Pre Gibson, Pre Peavy" and all this crap and he is pretty sure it is from when they weren't Gibson anymore. Can I get some indepth opinions and not just reviews on the gear, the deal, the cost and just your overall feelings. As i always say - WWTBD??
