Yes fellow UGer Keef-Is-King wanted to know if he could borrow my amp for a band practice and a school show later in the week.

He's been going to my school for the last few years and I only started talking to him every now and then this year. This is my main amp and I paid $200 for it. He has the same amp but needs to borrow it for his other guitar player so they can mic it on the stage.

HE says that he'll pay back for a new one if anything were to happen and that he'd take care of it. I think I should seeing as how he asked sincerely and plans to take good care for it. Also I would be able to ask his band for back up or something since I did something for them.

But my parents say to only lend something that important to really close friends, I talked to him throughout the year and on UG.

SO I ask should I let Keef-Is-King borrow my amp?

I'd do it, personally. But, hey, that's just me. I wouldn't lend out my guitar though.

Why not? He said he'd pay for it if something happens, which is unlikely. And if he doesn't pay for it if something happens, just beat him up.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.

Go ahead and let him use it,
You are going to the show right??
You can keep a close eye on it.

Sure, its just $200? You aren't exactly gambling high. Worst comes to worse he pays you for a new amp.

Interesting question...

Yeah I told him I would (I honostly want to) but my parents made it out like I just made a huge mistake and I got really unsure. I guess I will......

You only paid $200 and it's your main amp? That's pitiful. I'm guessing it's a piece if crap anyway, so it shouldn't really be that important.

It's a Vox ad30vt and yes maybe it's no JCM 900 but I can't really afford much else... it's a good amp though and I don't see any reason for calling it a peice of crap.

If you are worried something might happen to it and he might not pay you back "borrow" something of his worth about $250 so that if he want that object back the amp better come back in good condition.

Because everyone is good enough and has enough money to fund an expsensive amp.

Honestly, I've never seen an amp under $200 worth buying unless they're in some kind of sale. The ad30vt isn't so bad actually, I just assumed you had something a lot worse than that. Besides, I have a really shit amp too. My point was that you shouldn't be too apprehensive about lending it out because it's not too expensive and he did say he'd cover the cost of any damages.

I apologise for insulting your amp.

As I said above, I have a terrible amp. That wasn't my point, though.

If you get scammzored though your parents will hate you forever and give you up for adoption rather than saying "I told you so"

First off when the **** did I say I wasn't letting him use it.

And second what in your right mind makes you think i'm a dick, for being nervous about handing away my only amp?

He is using it for a show. Relax, a amp is meant to be played.

Sorry i'm just a bit overworked/under the weather at the moment, I thought you were calling me a dick for no reason. But I see what you mean and that's why I did plan on letting him borrow it. I just got a bit nervous about the idea and thought about consulting UG.
