Hey y'all - I new to this board, doing some research, so forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere.

I'm curious if there are any dealers that offer Mesa Boogie amps below full retail. There are 4 Guitar Center stores in my area (Seattle), but only a few carry Mesa amps in stock and seem intent on selling at full retail price. Given our high sales tax, buying from an out of state dealer would be slightly less expensive, even at full retail price and shipping cost.

I'm looking for a 1x12 Express 5:25, possibly a 1x12 5:50 or a 1x12 LoneStar Special. Considering Mesa's transferable warranty, waiting for a used amp can save considerable $.

thanks in advance for your time,
Dave

My local dealers won't budge off the pro-net pricing. It is an agreement they make when they become a Mesa dealer. Of course, some dealers are hustlers and break with the sales agreements and don't stick with pronet pricing. Whatever.

I worked for a dealer that would ONLY budge on prices if the amp had been discontinued. For example, we let a Maverick go for less than the old pro net for it.

By the way, dealers don't make s#$% off of Boogie for anyone who doesn't know. Its mostly a pride thing.

Jazz, most excellent quality dude! :D That is so much better than the old one that I've been straining my eyes to see for like the longest time. Man, just click on the "full size" in the upper left corner for a perfect document.

Posted the price list in an all-in-one form for easier reading. Also able to be read on mobile devices (some of us read this site on the train, you know). Props to the OP!

It also protects the smaller dealers. Everyone sells at the same price regardless of their volume discount. It prevents someone like MF from advertising/selling the stuff at the same prices the smaller shops pay for it.

You're not wrong. Nobody buys Mesa's in Australia - they are just ridiculously overpriced. It's an amp, not a car!

It's funny when you hear stories of Mesa authorised repairers saying they don't do 110-230V conversions - do they really think that will make people go out and buy an amp that costs more than their car? Even with freight, you can buy a Mesa much cheaper from the states - and have more than enough left over to do the conversion. Or if you don't care, just buy a step-down transformer. I can confidently say I will never buy a Mesa here. Even the second hand Aussie models are overpriced because the 1st owner wants to recoup the ridiculous purchase price. I bought my Triaxis on eBay for $850AU, want to know the retail price for a Triaxis in Australia? $5,000! That's right - about $4,500US! How many would you sell in the US at that price?

I don't know how much the dealers make but if your endorsed by mesa you can get a new mark V for $800. I have seen dealers budge on prices before not enough for me to buy a new one but usually a few hundred dollars off of a 1-2K amp. Or the at least offer to cover sales tax. For me I just buy used I don't need to have new I need it to work and with Mesa I never really worried about that even when they are used. Although relatively new to Mesa amps within the last year only (dc10 mkiv ) they are much superior in quality than anything else I have owned. I don't understand how people are selling used MKV for 1800 though I'm sure I could get a dealer to go to that price no problem.
