It’s hip right now and I agree, it’s a bit silly.
Mind you: I’ve got one that I bought new 15 years ago in a hurry because I was home recording an album and the Blue Jr I had blew on me.
It’s a great little amp that I like a lot, especially with dark guitars. But it’s nothing that special either.

It was worth the 100.00 I paid for mine new……. But mine sits in the closet most of the time. It was special at a price point.
I paid 269.00 for a Quilter SuperBlock US….. The PF15 is not even close.

I know nothing about the Pathfinder.

What I do know is there's one or two
techs in every big city who paid the bills
and more working on AC30's in the 60's
to the 90's.

Hopefully the Vietnamese have improved their reliability.
I won't own a Vox - if one was given to
me - I'd flip it. Too much misery.

I know right? What is the seller thinking? I got my 15R for $75 with a gio guitar

The seller is thinking that someone is going to read all the hype about the amp, then decide he has to have one, then realize they are kind of hard to come by, and then justify to himself paying a bunch of money for one.

In my opinion my 15R is sounds a lot better than the $40 I paid for it a couple years ago, but not $460 better. Knowing for a while now that I could likely triple (or more) my money selling it, I have been slow to even list it. It makes me happy every time I plug it in, and it's definitely enough for the amount and type of playing I do.

I can’t imagine it’s better than my little Yamaha GA 15II, which was basically free; thrown into a Pacifica starter pack (my first guitar) about three years ago.

I have a non reverb Pathfinder and this two for the solid & state.

Just my own 'Pathfinder value' take, based on my own experience ( and it
might be unique)

I paid $85 for mine maybe 8-9 years ago ( used, on CL, and in no small part, due to what I read about it right here!)
And without really expecting much, took it asap, to a weekly (small) band
gig, just to see if it could cut it. And ( aided with an OD) it was fantastic- perfect for my gigs, and overnight it was pretty much my #1 ( I need light/portable)

So since buying the PF I have made thousand of $$ in gigs, playing it ( including a 40- date, play gig using Danelectro +Pathfinder only), and it's value to me, way exceeds the $85 I paid.
Maybe not $500 in the real world, but kind of priceless in my little universe!
