So i'm planing on buying a used peavey 6505+, my budget is around 700$, guitar center has lots but i'm buying it online and cant test them before i buy. Should i still get it or wait to get it new, also what would be some other somewhat reliable places to look.

you can get it new for $699 plus tax. GC has a pretty good return policy. if you have a GC near you you can have them bring one in and you can try before you buy. GC is pretty reliable so just make sure to check the pix and condition on there used section. if it looks beat up then pass. i'm guessig they have a ton of them though.

I don't really know how much these cost in the US, but if you can get a new one for $700 jump on it.

If you can't, look around for a bit and if you still can't you might as well buy a used one.
They're solid and reliable, so if you buy it from a reputable source you'll be allright in most cases.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Are you talking about the 120 watt head or the 112 combo? $700 for a brand new 120 watt head would be a great deal. Even used, that's not a bad deal.

The 112 combo can be had for $350-400 used, $600 new. They are all reliable amps, but most any problem can be fixed anyway by yourself if you do the research.

Also, in my experience in dealing with Guitar Center online, if they say it's in 'excellent' condition -- you won't be able to find anything wrong with it; it'll look brand new. I've even bought an item or two that they said was in 'good' condition and I wasn't able to find a single blemish. However, I haven't bought that many items from them so I could have been lucky. I really hope they don't go out of business because they're my go-to for used gear.
