Well technically, there shouldn't be anything wrong with it. Not even torn tolex. If that was the case, they would have to sell it as blemished. I'm more wondering about the reliability of a refurbished amp. I know if I call them, they'll tell me that of course they're reliable whether they are or not. Anyone own a Vox refurb?

"Refurbished" in most cases is just a returned item from a previous customer because they didn't like it. so most of the time, u get a like-new condition item. my friend bought a refurbished epiphone les paul for 275, it looks so mint, and hes selling it for $300... so there shouldn't be anything bad about it.

Hmmm.... I guess a phone call would be in order, then.

i think refurbished means that at one point it was broken, then they fixed it

Im pretty sure that is what it means
#12
Yeah, generally it's something that was unwanted or faulty from the last owner, so they sent it back.
Musiciansfriend then fixed it, and it's sold as refurbished. That's generally how it works i think. I bought a refurbished MP3 Player - different thing, but the principal's the same.
It was fine, and at that price, that's as good as buying it used, so i'd say jump on it, especially with the option of returning it...

It's an AC30, so even when the warranty expires it won't be difficult to find a tech who can work on it (and shouldn't be expensive when you do).

I think you'll be fine. It's a good price and even if you keep it for a while and get rid of it, you should be able to get at least that much on the used market.
