Don't believe what? I bought a late SF VC from America about 10 years ago for $250 American. I resold it for $450 US here in Oz two years back. And vintage stuff doesn't go for as much here. They are rare compared to a common production amp today. Even if you looked at combined CL, eBay and other online classifieds it's a rare bird, matched only by Valco, Gretsch, Tweed Gibson's etc. Arguably the Vibro Champ is still top of the pile in terms of sounding like a 'big' Fender. I only sold it because I scored a deal on a Clapton Vibrochamp. Got back the cost of a Weber speaker, caps and NOS preamp tubes I put in it.
