    Well I was at a local music store and they had a used SWR workingman's 15 there for $350.00. I didn't get to play it becuase I was pressed for time.

    But the following day I went up to Guitar Center and tried a new one....well I fell in love!
    The used model seemed to be fine...just a little dusty.

    But one thing I noticed was this model had a "head" like it was a cab and head in one casing, the new one at GC didn't have this. So what was up with this??

    So should I give this used model a chance?

    So what are the differences between the two?
  4. dont worry dude, $350 is good for a used one. I mean, they want $700 for a new one. Go for it silly!:D

    It's a good deal, but haggle 'em down to $300.

    I'll go for it cause this it was either this or a 60 watt peavey. I've read the reviews and the majority of the reviews have been positive..

    I'm going to trade in a old guitar and possibly an old bass and maybe I'll get it down to 275 or at least 290 so I don't know yet.
