OK Guys,  
Perhaps I'm just burned out but to look at the prices that folks pay for new Crate, Peavey, Fender, and Marshall junk/shit I can't believe that anyone in their right mind would refuse to buy this amp. Have you looked inside a Blue Voodoo (doodoo) or a Classic 30/et al, a Blues Devil, or that low end Marshall (Richie showed me this, I don't remember the model number)? Thin PC boards, cheap caps, plastic input/all jacks, cheap undersized pots, funky imported tubes, technician's nightmare to services, and blah, blah, blah!!!  
Hell, what do you all want? Try pricing out the components alone (and you know that I find many problems with this amp - still.....)  
Sheesh - cheapskates!!  
PS: Someone recently posted that Vibro-Champs - were going for $400 in San Francisco - somehow I would think a 100W amp is worth more than a 5W one.
