That's cool. I call them like I see them, sometimes I guess I can come off harsh. I don't like to beat around the bush and sugar coat things. I'm brutally honest, sometimes too honest.

Well, I solved my problem :

I got a full refund for my 5150 combo, went to the music store, and there was a 5150 II head brand new on sale for 699$. Bought it on the spot.

$700 for just the head? i guess since it's new then that's not to bad. but then again you could buy a used one and have it looked over by a tech, retubed and biased for about that much.

what are you going to do for a cab?

it's all just hype about them being discontinued and people for some reason think it's all of a sudden worth more.

a good price for one though is about $600.

i guess there is a sucker born everyday.

That's the predicament, I simply could'nt find a better price anywhere. E-bay is very reliable, but you can't really beat walking into a music store, and buying a 5150 II head that you've played numerous times, for 700$. Knowing that it sounds great and that the damned thing works, it was a very good deal in my opinion. And of course, a few hundred dollars of modifications ( I'm going to have JerryP service this very 5150 II someday. Don't you die on me! ) will put in in another league all together.

And we do know these items are not going to become any cheaper over the years.

If I'm a sucker then I'm a happy sucker.

well yes you can beat a $700 price tag.. maybe not on a new one. but there are still plenty of used ones in the $500-600 range, in alot of stores and websites like harmony central.


once the 6505's come out... all will be normal. the 6505's are going to end up costing the same new price the 5150's did, and then the used costs are going to follow. then the 5150's will also have a price decline, why? why buy a used 5150 II for over $700 when you'll be able to buy the same amp(just different appearance) for $500-$600 used.

i'm not saying YOU are a sucker... i was reffering to the idiot on ebay spending $820 on a USED 5150 II.

Musicians Friends blowout was $699 the JSX's were $750

Now I guess I have a "Vintage Block Letter 5150 Head"

and the 6506 will be a bit cheaper than the 5150

nope, the 5150's and 5150 II's were going for $750. they were just trying to empty out the 5150's they had. that jsx deal was very very temporary.

if the 6505's do end up being cheaper, it'll only make my point stronger. why by a used 5150 for so much when you could buy a new 6505 at the same price, or a used 6505 for much less?

I don't see the price of a used 5150 going down for a while. Ebay and the whole EVH thing will keep the prices up in the stupid range for a while. When I got into 5150's they were $200-300 all day long, now you're lucky if you can find a used 5150 for under $600 and then it usually needs $100-150 worth of tubes.

read my explaination of why they'll go down once the 6505's have been out for a little while.

my buddy bought his 5150 in mint condition for $475 just a few months ago. nothing wrong with it, tubes were fine. that was the price range they were going for several months ago.

now everybody is deciding that they're worth more just because they changed the name? pointless. i wouldnt even consider 5150's to be discontinued. it's just a name change. it's like slapping an epiphone sticker on a gibson headstock.. same thing, different name.

anyone who will buy a used 5150 for over $600 is a sucker in my book.

Now I have a bit of "buyer's remorse", seeing as how I easily could have afforded that.

Either way, my new amplifier sounds great ... today the neighbors were away so I was able to crank it to 1.5 ... I was playing Steve Vai's "Giant Balls of Gold", and I'm amazed at just how rich the lead channel's distortion is! That it could traverse the entire spectrum, from disembowling grind to the refined tone of Vai's leads ... to me this amplifier is worth much more than 700$.

oh wow, 1.5

be a man...

in my old band, the guitarist would bring his 5150 up to 6 pushing two 4x12 cabs.

it's a pretty good head. i'd never own one... but then again i'm looking to spoil myself.
