First off I live near Toronto, Canada. I've been going from store to store recently in search of a road king or something similar but I've only found a few and their prices have been unreasonable(50% mark ups or more in most cases) on new and used gear. I've also been looking at eBay for quite some time now but find that all the fairly priced items have about 20 other people bidding on them. Living in Canada do I just need to bite the bullet and spend the extra cash ordering it at a dealer or are there other options? I would appreciate any help, thanks.

I live in ontario too although a fair bit north of toronto, what about taking a drive to the guitar centre near detroit, michigan?

I think ebay or craigslist is your best bet. Just make damn sure that the tubes are new I've heard a new retubing on a roadking can cost $500+

Check the Craigslists of cities up North such as Chicago as well.

You might just have to sit on eBay and compete with those 20 other people. Note that usually 20 bids just mean that one guy put up a bid 15 times and another guy put up his bid 5 times.

Just make sure you don't bid until theres about 3 mins left. That always works.

You gotta go to craigslists, forums, etc. At GC they have to charge a certain minimum price for them, because mesa says so.

The RK has 14 tubes.

Yeah, it would cost quite a bit to re tube. I am not looking forward to it.

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

$280. That was new powertubes, new preamp tubes, and new recto tubes. You don't have to replace preamp and recto tubes unless they blow. Power tubes last a few years. If you run the amp on spongy it's not too hard on the tubes either.
