After a few years of inactivity, I am playing again. Getting the bass was easy IHMO. The hardest part has been tracking down a suitable rig to play through. I was in a local chain store the other day on whim. Usually like the mom and pop stores better - always find the hidden gems there in my opinion, but was in the area, so figured why not... . I was looking though the bass area and I see a Mesa Boogie 400+ bass head. It isn't priced, so I ask. I am told $450. Now, I have done some research, and even saw a new one in their store, and they are going for a heck of a lot more than $450. I am just leery. Is there something I should be concerned with? Hours used? It seems to me that old adage has to come into play - if it is too good to be true... The new model they had was over 1,300. The used one only $450?? Seems strange to me. Are there things I should be looking for in regards to a tube amp? I always used solid state, but this seemed like a golden opportunity. However..... Any help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
