      Whenever someone gets a good deal, I'm pretty much on the wrong end.

        1 year ago I paid 340 for a Made in England Vox AC15tb 2x10 it was only missing a speaker theyre worth like 1000 I sold it a few weeks a go though. My first tube amp ever was a USA made Crate Palomino v16 I got for 125 and it still had the tags on it this was back when they were like 500 new.

                    Not really. I got a Mark IV combo for $950, which is a pretty good price (though not a steal by any means, as it was kinda beat up). But it turned out to be damaged and I'm going to have to send it in.

                      I haven't gotten any insane deals that I can remember. The best deal I got was a Mark IV head and 2x12 Recto cab together for $1430 shipped in June of 2007. So I basically got a free Recto 2x12.

                        tons of them.

                        single recto head $200
                        mid 70's marshall cabs with black backs for 400 on 3 sperate occasions.
                        don't ask how they were all the same price a fawn one, a black one, and a black with s&p grill.
                        mark IV wood/wicker combo for 700 (needed $300 in work though)
                        mark IV compact combo for 500 (cab was nailed together...still worked great!)
                        custom shop gibson lp custom flourintine 1400 (sold for 2800, and i still regret it)
                        brubaker (high end custom guitar maker) B-II custom fior 499 (sold for 1899)
                        74 lp deluxe 1,000
                        81 lp custom 1,100


                        thats all i can think of off the top of my head.

                          I got a vintage EV V-1 ribbon mic for $25 and sold it for $400
                          5150 half stack for $500, sold it for $950
                          '87 Ibanez RG550 for $150, sold it for $700
                          I bought a Marshall TSL60 for $650 (when the market was better and they were going for $800-ish) and traded a guy for a Mesa F-100 2x12, which I sold last week for $850.
                          I got my RectoVerb series II and a Mesa 2x12 recto cab for $1000

                          Other than that, I've gotten pretty fair prices for my gear, but not a really ridiculous amount of killer deals.

                            Got a 70's Fender Blender for $70 (10 off full price) from a local music store, they didn't know what it was really worth.
                            It still had the same stores 70's decal sticker on the side.

                              I just picked up a Script-logo MXR Phase 45 a week ago for $20.

                              Was going to flip it, but it sounds too good to let go of.
