There's a Mesa Rect-o-verb selling used at the guitar store for $989. Is this a good price for one of these? Also how heavy can it get? Is it really midrangey or fizzy?

Midrange is your friend.

Yes a Rectoverb can get ultra-heavy. Yes it is very midrangey. I'm rather 'anti-scoop' but I find Rectos need some amount of scooping to sound their best.

So do you think it would be worth it for that price? It's in great condition only way you can tell it's used is the sticker that says so.

They typically sell used for $800-$1000.
Closer to $800 privately, closer to $1000 in stores.

I got one of those around a month ago. It's got amazing cleans, but the on mine is kind of Fizzy. you can take the fizz out considerably to where it'll sound great in a mix, but it wouldn't be set to the most conventional of settings. But don't worry. I have a strange feeling the pickups on my godin guitar are the cause of this fizz, and I should have a new guitar by next week so If you still haven't decided by then, I'll let you know how it sounds then.

I've got one and I absolutely love it. I believe Mesa built it with generally the same specs as a Single Recto and just added Reverb. I may be wrong, either way, I love mine, clean when I want it clean, dirty when I want it dirty, heavy when I want it heavy.
