    so, I'm selling my first ever tube amp.
    Title says it all.
    Now I know these amps aren't liked very much on here, but I thought it was a nice workhorse/pedal platform as my first tube amp.
    I've gigged with it a TON, and it's noticeably used. In the lower front corners the tolex is pretty.... well.... relic'd?
    Any of you guys know how much these go for used?
    Somewhere between 350 to 450 I guess?
    I can get pics if it helps


    Thanks!

    Blue book mint condition is $476, but it's all in the marketing. You could say "relic'd", kind of like a flake paint finish when you're selling a car that the paint is flaking off.

    Why not send your chassis and tank to Jim at Omega Amps for his dynamite mods? You get back a fantastic sounding amp for very little money. So little it'll blow your mind when you play it - ;)

    yeah, I've thought about the mods. But that won't really help it's resale value any. I don't need the amp anymore, since I've got something more high-end now, that suits my taste better anyway. Right now it's really just taking up space.
    I like the relic'd idea ;-).
    $476 huh? Thanks for that. Guess I won't take the guy's $350 then.
    If you got any other suggestions please keep it coming, but this already helped considerably

    I think $350 - 400 is fair for a "reliced" one. I saw a used one in a Sam Ash this weekend that was $400 in good condition.
