    Only if you're in an area where you don't have to pay customs on that.

    I almost bought a trainwreck for less than $2k back in the day.
    Thought was too expensive.

    And someday , all the players who could make use of them will have only heard about them from their dads or grandpa’s .

    and those young players will get crap from their buddies about spending $3500 on an amp that no one’s heard of - and it has a stupid name! :lol::lol::lol:

    aaah - the circle of life

    I mean, why don't they just call Bonanassa (sic) directly??? :lol:

    If anybody is going to be crazy enough to pay that much for it, he will.

    I used to go to London Vintage Guitars (actually called Hank's Guitar Shop) when I lived nearby in Bloomsbury. I always liked Denmark Street - it's like a mini oasis away from the prostitutes, scammers, thieves and heroin addicts who throng the surrounding streets up and down Tottenham Court Road, Holborn, Charing Cross Road and Oxford Street. I would go in to buy strings and other equipment. I actually played at the 12 Bar Club just down the road - great little (quite famous) acoustic venue. They always had some very nice, interesting guitars in the shop. Pricey though!

    Lawd, I'm so glad I've stopped caring about equipment. I wouldn't spend 100K on any amp, even if I were a millionaire. Nor would I spend 5K+ on a guitar. I've owned all kinds of vintage gear, and sold it all for a profit. All I use now is a $500 partscaster and a $400 multi-effects pedal, and it sounds just as good to me. The only use I would have for any of that gear is to sell it for a profit.

    Yeah, like explaining this to the family after you accidentally slipped and/or fell/stepped/jumped on your phone or mouse or whatever button...:D
    "Look guys, I just wanted to purchase a plectrum, dont blame me for not noticing there was this other item!"
    (unless they do refunds)

    I agree. THE place for GAS people in London. The Regent sounds shop has a cool vibe to it.
    But as you said. Pricey. When I visited Hanks approx. 1-2 years ago, they had a 72 LP Custom for 15000!

    You can't accidentally make the purchase. It takes more effort and no one who doesn't have the money could/would be able to make that mistake. :) But... the visual on a mistake like that is pretty funny as long as it's not me. :D

    What makes these so special that they cant be duplicated by someone else?

    Why hasn't someone simply bought the identical parts and soldered together a clone?

    This is almost as ridiculous as the Mexican woman who can sit down at the identical winding machine as the person next to her, use the same exact materials and yet somehow produce a magical pickup that costs hundreds of dollars more than the regular one.

    How could anyone spend that kind of coin of an amp without having a professional give it an evaluation. No sensible person would make that purchase on Reverb.
    Perhaps the seller is a Nigerian Prince.

    I agree. Totally overpriced and not the sound EVERYONE is looking for.
    I prefer any good Bandmaster, JTM or Supro over a SSS or ODS.

    About ten years ago I got a chance to play through a Dumble Overdrive Special. Cool amp but after that I never had the desire to own one. Not my cup of tea. I'd be more happy with a nice running blackface Super Reverb.

    In the Late '90s I was visiting folks in Catonsville, MD (just south of Baltimore) and there seemed to be 3 'high-end' guitar shops in that town as well as a couple mega-mart shops. Anyway, one of the boutiques had 3 Dumbles in stock, and all I knew is that they were crazy expensive. And suede.

    Anyway, it seems they're just hard to find, not imaginary. And Expensive.

    1.) What do all you Joe B fans pay when you see him ?

    2.) what do you think his main source of income is ?

    3.) I bet he has a good money manager so he’s probably prepared to ride this out so, probably won’t be seeing a Joe B fire sale any time soon. But - you never know...

    4.) This could be the extra push all the oldsters need to start “The Liquidation” ...:eek:

    5.) Stay tuned

    Even if I was rich, that's @ $100k more than I would like to spend on a great sounding amp.
