I got my Peavey 6505 212 off ebay.

They forgot to ship my footswitch, the grill on the 'amp head' part wasn't screwed in. It's safe, I mean all that didn't bother me because I got the amp "new" (it looked pretty fuggin new) and I got it for $900

amps are build pretty solid. if anything you should be worry about is the tubes. ask them if they can take it out and put it in a separate place

I purchased my V16 off eBay, and not only did I get a steal but it showed up quickly and fully functional.

So long as the user has a good feedback rating, it's generally pretty safe.

Yeah, I got my V16 off ebay as well.

It should be fine, provided that they pack it halfway decently.

Why would you risk buying it off ebay for $196.96 + $15 for shipping (total of $211.96), when you can buy it brand new from musiciansfriend for $199.99 + free shipping (total of $199.99)!?

Yea I caught one with a Vintage 30 for $253 and something like $30 for shipping.

You can definitely get some deals. Buy used!

That's safe man.
It won't get damaged, and get insurance so that if by any chance anything happens youre covered.
and it's 100% safe *from that guy*
He's a power seller. Which basically means the guy is a retail man, and his buying section just happens to be on ebay.
