And I wanted to buy it, but I think it's way too high. I don't know much about Fender amps, however. What do you guys think? I am not sure on age and neither was he, but it is in perfect shape. My guess is it's a few years old. They want $975.

Used reissue...maybe a tad high.
Original Blackface Twin...unbelievable deal.

Theres no way thats an original, and 975 is way high for a reissue IMO.

Given the fantastic condition and the too-good-to-be-vintage price I'm betting it's a reissue. I'm also thinking the owner of the store not knowing which it is just a tad convenient and probably a lie. I never do business with people once they've lied to me like that. YMMV.

I just called them. Dude says it is a re-issue about 3 years old or so.

That being the case, what is it worth roughly?

$750.00 is as high as I'd go for that amp ....but I would not pay even that as I'm not looking for a RI twin.

Yep......$975 is WAY over the top these days. I got mine for $500 in good shape, but you have to be patient.

If the reissues are selling for 750 or so on the bay, figure the store has 5-600 in it and likely needs to make a couple hundred. I cant imagine hey put the price on it they expect to get. What would they offer you that some dude on eBay wouldn't? Did they give it a once over, short warranty, left some ANOS tubes in it?

It's a retail operation. They ALWAYS ask, and generally sell merch at higher prices than private sales. Just like used cars folks. Doesn't mean the OP cannot haggle. If you can show the store that the completed sales prices on Ebay are about $750.00, then offer them that, plus a 30 day warranty. Of course, they can say no way and let it sit in their store. Usually, music stores put prices on stuff they HOPE to get. They will sometimes sell for less, sometimes they won't.

A Twin Reverb is a great amp but they are heavy and are way to loud for my needs. I have a '67 and I really like it but I've taken it to only 2 gigs since I bought it.
