Guitar Center isn't ripping you off per se, but you have to remember that they're buying it to resell, not to add to their collection to play.

Really depends on your budget man. I can only assume you don't have upwards of $1500 to spend on a used AXE-FX. Your best bet would one of the POD HD's, or even an Eleven Rack.

If it's strictly FX, I'd definitely go the 500 route. I wouldn't be surprised if you could still find one new somewhere dirt cheap since the 500X is out.
