They say:

I have too much gear, and need to trim down my collection

What they really mean is:

I finally got a good amp and now realize how awful this thing really sounds
 

They say:

Mint condition, only occasionally used in my home studio

What they really mean is:

I got taken when I bought this, I refuse to be seen playing it in public, and want it out of my sight.
 

They say:

It's a real vintage beauty with tons of mojo

What they really mean is:

It's beat to hell and may not work for more than another 15 minutes before going up in smoke.
 

They say:

This was my main gig rig, but no longer playing shows so I don't need it anymore

What they really mean is:

My parents bought me this piece of junk in junior high, I'm not good enough to get any gigs and have finally given up trying to learn to play.
 

They say:

This is a great rehearsal amp that needs a home

What they really mean is:

My wife sold my Squier strat in a garage sale, and she wants this thing out of the house, too.

 

They say:

Plenty of life left in the tubes

What they really mean is:

I changed the tubes and it still sounds terrible

They say:

It should be an easy fix.

What they really mean is :

I have no idea how to fix it.

 

They say:

Probably just needs new tubes.

What they really mean is:

I have no idea what's wrong. New tubes are as good a guess as any.
