The pictures aren't great but from what I can see it seems legit. $650 is a fair price especially since you've been able to actually play it and hear it up front so you don't have to worry about...

I've got the little Blackstar Ht5 and can vouch for its quality. The metal versions of the HT series might be more your speed. My only question is do you really need a 100 watt amp? If you're in a...

It depends on the year and condition(which he said is very good). A 90s or early 2000s LP is about what you say (several on Reverb for 1,600) but a 2012-2014 does command 1,800 on up to 2,200 from...
