    Ha! You have to admit our local CL is fairly realistic pricing wise. It seems everyday we see an absolutely crazy valuation in the bigger markets.
    Has crazy come home?

    I imagined WA prices would be higher but I could buy two silverfaced twins down here and have them both serviced and blackfaced for less than or about that kind of money no thanks. I can't get on the less amp for more money bandwagon. It runs counter to my guitar-thrift-fu. Now if he was asking $750 maybe we could work something out. Maybe he'd take $675 haha.

    I don't know. I just looked at 15 Vibrolux amps from 1964-65 and $2950.00 is the cheapest price out of all of them. I wonder why they went to the Mojo cabinet though. Prettier? It looks good and if that refit was done nice that could be a good deal, no?

    It wasn't too bad until he got to Mojotone cab except I'd want to be 100% sure all the caps and resistors they replaced really were needing to be replaced. Then he could expect a $1000 reduction in price. I want the beat up old original cab not the new Mojotone. If that pedal is original and not a reproduction, he could get an easy $300 for it.

    For comparison I picked up a 72 Twin in a mojotone cab in 2019 for $500 plus a couple hundred in service costs, lol. The mojotone cabinet is a real nice cabinet but the handle is of much lower quality rubber than an original and has already begun cracking out while my sixties handle functions as new. I also have a mojotone baffle in my other Twin and it is a much higher quality baffle than the factory mdf one I replaced.

    Usually the only time I go to CL is when I want to get kidnapped and/or made into ham and eaten.
    And that's a little high, and so he the seller.

    Huh, two long-pig mentions in one week. What's in the water lately?
