Actually, up here craigslist runs pretty dry for quite a bit of the year. I dunno if you've ever tried driving in to chicago, but being 2 hours from chicago puts him about 3.5 hours from getting into the city, it is gridlocked daily just about. If you know what you want though you can usually find it if you scour hard enough.

I lived in Indiana my entire life until last year. 90/94 can be a bitch near downtown but there are shops like Make N' Music that sell boutique gear and I'm sure there are others. That's why I say he should look in Chicago since South Bend isn't a hot bed of activity.

Well I'm kinda in between the both of ya, it's about an hour for me each way and the gear is pretty dry here. I can tell ya that the porter/lake county area doesn't have much available for any decent price, and it appears to be the trend in the surrounding areas. I went to a pawn shop that was selling a blue voodoo head for $500 in the local area, and all of the other music shops I've been to aren't really any different, I've just resolved to ordering from GC and returning what I don't like.

Also, sorry for getting snippy with ya about the driving to chicago thing, most people I hear who say just go to chicago act like it's like driving into merrilville. Seriously though the traffic issues are so stupid, there is absolutely no reason for them most of the time. I remember one time my family was taking a trip up to Wisconsin and it took us 2 1/2 hours to get through the city because of gaper's delay.

Have you even called the GC you ordered it from?

If not there is a good chance that they will not do anything for you because of the time that has passed.

it just depends on the time of day, day of the week. our traffic sucks but it's consistent.

craigslist chicago has been kinda boring lately.

Im really now considring the Krank Rev Jr head now. maybe grabbing a mesa or orange 1x12 or something. either that or the 6505 112 really. but i like the fact the krank is only 20 watts. really leaning toward that right now even thought I've never played one. I wonder how good of an idea I can get from the model on my vypyr?

yeah probably not. my return was accepted by the irs sunday. So it shouldnt very long now. really wish I could hear the krank rev jr in person lol. i really like the idea of it only being 20 watts. and I could probably just grab a cheap 112 cab like jet city or something like that. but people say the tone is different and alot of people dont like it. and now i see a krankenstein jr for $350. seems like it would be better with the clean channel its switchable.

but then you have the 6505 112 that can be had for $400 or less. xxx for $350. such a tough decision. rev jr $299. blah lol
