    Can anyone confirm this? The discontinued part that is for the MESA and SWR.

    I heard GC was selling the Black Beauty's for under 500 last weekend. If I can still cop one for that price I might buy it.

    GC in N. Attleboro MA. had 3 Black Beauty's all marked to mid $500 area. They also had 1- 215 Powerhouse cab and said it could be discounted only because they were discontinued.
    A small shop a few towns away told me he had 1-115 Powerhouse cab that he could go down to $475 on only because Mesa Boogie lets him discount it due to the fact that line is being revamped. So maybe it will keep the Powerhouse name but make substantial changes. But there are 2 different dealers telling me the same story on the Mesa stuff.

    Yeah, I bought a new "Black Beauty" for $499.99 at Guitar Center in California last Memorial Day, three weeks ago.

    The story I got was that GC was dropping the high-end SWR stuff, but they were not discontinued. I have no idea if that's true or not.
