    I found a Series 6 GP12 preamp for $149.....should I buy or save my cash?

    Would I be better off waiting for my Aguilar DB659, or trying to find a GP12X/SMX or just go ahead and get this?

    For that price, jump on it. If not, let me know where it is...

    Go for it, the Series 6 has a good reputation as THE classic Trace sound, it's not as fancy as the SM/SMC/SMX/X series but some say that contributes to the sound. At that price, jump on it.

    Leap on that dude.

    I have a series 6 AH200 with the GP12 front end.

    The attack response of that thing is unbelievably fast. The note is just all there the instant your finger comes off the string. It's spooky.
