    Hey all,

    I was wondering what you guys think is a fair price for a Mesa 400 head in top condition? I was recently offered one for $850 locally and it is disgustingly awesome, but it seems like they are asking a lot. I would naturally try to haggle it down, but they are being rather firm on the price.

    The last time I tracked prices of monster tube heads ebay SVT-II's were going for a lot less than that ($500-750 range) and Mesa 400's seem to hover around 600-800 range. 400+ seems to go for a little more.

    Advise appreciated!

    You've got it about right. I have seen 400's go for 850, but I've also seen them around 600. If its in really good shape, and comes with a rack, then you're in the ballpark.
