    Someone is trying to trade me one for a bass I own. Wondering if it's worth it.

    I do not have one for sale so no offers please.
  2. I've seen them for around $450-$500 in great shape. Hope this helps.

    I've seen them used, in good condition for as low as $350 in a private sale.

    Years ago, had one that I think I bought for $350, and sold for $400 (with some better tubes from my stash). It was an old red-knob one.

    It doesn't matter. Just take it and you will not be sorry! ( I got mine for $425).
