Just picked up another recto slant cab for $250. No scratches or tears in the grill either. It was my luck day I guess.

Nice deal man, mind if i ask you why is there the 4x12 cabnet that looks like a strait cab, but it has an angled baffle? I never understood why boogie did this.

I bought a very used Les Paul Studio for $200. It was a great guitar! Ugly, but great!

The local GC had a "new" Rectifier head that wouldn't make sound for $200! I walked away from it, regretted it, called the next day and it was gone! I build and repair amps. I should've grabbed it!

I bought a M/B 4 space SUS-4 shock mount rack case from a guy, that lives in my neighborhood, for $10.

Just bought another 4X12 M/B cabinet from Guitar Center, last week.
They thought one of the speakers was blown or something. So, they marked down to $149.99.
It arrived today. Turns out it is a stereo cabinet. They must have hooked it up wrong? All the speakers work fine.

Traded a guy for a road ready M/B 4X12.
I gave the guy a Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz pickup ($60),
a Fender 5-way super switch ($15)
and a Lovepedal Kanji Eternity Overdrive pedal (free to me).
So, that makes $75 invested in that cab. I bought another one from Music-Go-Round, it cost me $580.

I got my MKIII for around 300 dollars from a pawn shop because someone had stolen the tubes and the Lead Gain knob was broken. I had spare tubes and a call to Mesa plus 15 dollars later the knob was fixed.

My Dual rectifier rack cost 400 dollars from the Plano Guitar Center because it wouldn't make a sound. A couple of resistors in the low voltage had decided to burn up. Fixed that and it sounds great.

I built myself a slo-clone for about 800 dollars, that seemed like a pretty good deal.

I forget how much I paid for my 2:90 but it was also very discounted from guitar center.

I got a Peavey Roadmaster from Guitar Center for fifty dollars because it kept blowing fuses. It is essentially a JCM800 clone at 160 watts. I removed two diodes that had shorted out and it works great.

The only new equipment I buy tends to be recording gear. Otherwise I tend to grab good deals when I find them.
