To pick a pawn or not?

Stopped by my local pawn shop today and found a Crate V5 Tube Amp for $50-60, in pretty good condition. I already have a sweet amp - a 10 year old AC30cc2x and am not looking for a backup or replacement, merely a different option that doesn't weigh in at 100 lbs (as my Vox does when I put it in a road case).

Any opinions on this little amp? Sells for $200 new and I have spare tubes lying around to replace the stock ones.

If it sells for 200$, why the heck are you asking UG whether to buy or not? Seems illogical.

Buy it. Or alternatively you could but it, put it in a box, and post it over to Western Australia and I'll buy it.

Step three: Determine if you like it.

Step four A: If Like=True, then keep

Step four B: If Like=False, then sell

Step five B: Profit

And it'd still be cheaper than any equivalent I'd be able to get locally
