I hate you for making this thread. I was going to do this.

EDIT: Getting an AC30 for Christmas!

And what's with the price rise on MF?

I was wondering about that too, but it seems Guitar Center is still selling them for $999, everywhere else, Sweetwater, MF, etc. they're $1199. Weird...

On a side note, those Vox Amplugs seem to be selling for a $40 instead of $70 :P

depends on the store and the condition. I would say anywhere from 10-30%. A place like guitar center will probably charge more because it's already "broken in" or they'll lie and say somebody famous came in and played as if that has anything to do with the amp

Depends how smooth a talker you are but I got my AC30 for around $920 but then with tax, it brought it right back to about $1000.

I'm sure you could knock of at least 10 percent off.

i have eternal gratitude to vox, with its cheaper line of AD's being my first amp. ive owned my AD15 for (i think) 2 years now and i still use it at home.

i also have a v847a. a real nice wah, although if i may be allowed one gripe, when bypassed, i lose a bit of brilliance from my tone. but overall, its not that much, and i still love to use it every chance i can get.

ac30? ive always dream of owning one...

i agree, but the bypass really isn't much to worry about, for me anyway. and basically everytime i have a solo opportunity when i'm jamming, i kick in the v847a

A strat through a twin!

Check out Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2. A fine example of the strat through the AC30(methinks, sounds like a strat to me).
