Can't believe I'm listing this so soon after picking it up, but I just stumbled across the Bogner Alchemist and I've got some serious GAS! If I could afford to keep the Mesa I would, but alas I am a poor college student and that's simply not possible. This amp was too much for me anyway-I'm not currently in a band and this is far too loud and over the top to use in a bedroom/dormitory. That said, this thing sounds seriously good when cranked. Like, SERIOUSLY good. If you're looking for a loud, tight amp with the signature recto grind, this is for you.
This deal does NOT include the Bigfoot rectifier footswitch. They can be picked up on ebay for $50-75. I have adjusted the price of the amp accordingly.
Currently there are JJ E34Ls in the power section-these mimic the tight/low end qualities of 6L6s but retain the rich, harmonic midrange normally associated with standard EL34s. They are approximately 5 months old and have lots of life left in them. I only pushed the amp up to high volumes 3 or 4 times and I never used a hotplate with it. Very cool tubes! The preamp section is tubed with hi gain JJ ECC83Ss in V1, V2, and V3, a standard in V4, and a balanced in V5. These tubes are approximately 8 months old and also have plenty of life left in them. The rectifier tubes are stock (I never really used them).
I am located in Mequon, Wisconsin (53092) and will ship at buyers expense. I prefer to be contacted via PM here, but you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

$1090 OBO + shipping. Local pickup/money order preferred. Please note that I will NOT accept paypal for this transaction, as the fees will take far too much of a chunk out of the payment. I am willing to compromise if the buyer will cover the paypal fees.

and shipping would axe me fine and dandy if i sold the JSX.. oh but that price..
life is unfair im so asking my parents for gits and shiggles
