    The pic that you provided is a newer Chinese RAT2 version, which can be sold for $40 easily used.

    A LM308 RAT2 though can be comfortably sold for around $100 or so, I bought mine for $75 which was a deal as mine's a '95 with the LM308 chip.

    Just curious, how can you tell it's a newer RAT2 from that pic? I've tried to spot the differences and can't.:bonk

    Knobs are smaller than the old ones.

    The Proco logo is also smaller on the Chinese ones and the enclosure is gently sloped as opposed to flat. Although in that photo it's quite difficult to tell.

    The prices mentioned are probably around what they go for. I would check eBay to see what they are currently going for. There are plenty of them around if you ever want to get another. The old big box Rats are the ones that go for the most money. The small box are somewhere in between.

    3 ways to tell its a newer, non LM308 version is:

    - Smaller knobs with a indent in them

    - Slanted box ala Turbo Rat

    - ProCo logo is so small its almost illegible
