Going rate for a used Single Recto Solo head?
I was playing one of these things last night, and man, i'm in love. Before i spring for it though, i just was wondering what the typical used price was for these. Here's what i can tell you that might affect the price:
-I'm not sure if it's the first or second version, as the pick of V.2 i saw had the same control setup with no "raw" mode indicated- it was merely a middle position between the vintage and modern modes on the lead channel, unlabled. I didn't even think to try it, as i wasn't aware there was an updated version. I do know they've had it about a year, though- i remember seeing it up at the same shop once before.
-Cosmetically, it's great- the stamped metal front is clean, and the leather seemed clean, as well. Can't say for the tubes, but even at extreme settings i wasn't getting any microphonics (tone/volume- didn't really push the output).
-No hum or anything- i was watching for that after rjv (or some similar initial set, lol) posted his big dissertation on that.
-Included footswitch. Stock, i presume. Appears to have a nylon amp cover too, although i didn't check to see if it was for the recto maverick head sitting on top of it.
They're asking $999, and i might be able to talk them down a little bit from that... is this a decent price for a used single recto? (it could probably pass as store display model new, near as i can tell. I could probably score a dual for a little more, but the wattage is more than i really need- 50 is more than enough.
EDIT/PS- you know, for all i know it could be new. i forgot to ask, lol.
