    Maybe they fat fingered a 9 on the CL ad and a 0 on the repair bill? Odd coincidence?

    I'd pay $150 for a twin with speakers taken from a landfill in 1986 from some dude who thinks the amps a '68...... I wonder if the reverb tank is half of an old toaster?

    That's not just "a" Bob Marley strap. It is actually one of Bob Marley's straps. It has his name right on it! Might be worth double in the coming end times...

    Guess that I got a really good deal on my mint BF Twin Reverb, and I expected prices to drop during a pandemic.

    Too funny.

    Maybe there's something green under the pick guard that adds to the value.. After all it is a Bob Marley model..

    Why buy brand new when you can buy one "Like new" for twice the price?

    This...I’ve never met a pawn shop that would fork over $100 to repair an amp, much less this figure. They prolly got into it too deep by some employee taking it in for way too much and now they’re trying to recoup.

    Either that or they’re just dumber than a bag of hammers.

    Lol. What a screw over that bill is. Unbelievable. I wonder if someone actually forked over that amount to pay for the amp’s service? I’m doubtful.

    Normally I have zero interest in a Twin, but who wouldn't want to get their hands on a time capsule museum piece like that one.
