    Here is alittle setup for the Ebay story. Until last year I have been battling psoriasis of the fingertips. I couldn't basically play the guitar for 8 years intil Sept 01. I restarted again with my old equipment guitars and such that were around the 15 to 17 years old age and pretty beat up. Since I still have an occasional flareup of the finger tips I have been pretty hesitant to buy a 5150 II amp especially a brand new one.
    For the past 2 months I have been looking for the amp on Ebay and just waited for a good opportunity. I found someone who was selling one about an hour away from me(so no shipping costs) and he answered all questions,gave pictures , you know the deal. He also mentioned he wasn't doing financialy well and that was the only reason why he was selling it. I am thinking yea right blah,blah,blah. He just said take care of my baby(the amp).
    I won the auction and wasn't able to pick up the amp until yesterday. He said bring a guitar and we can jam for awhile to make sure I was happy with the amp. He said there should be no problems with the amp and if so call him even in a month. Do to time restrictions I couldn't.I was in a rush to go pick up the kids from school and also pick up a Marshall cab that I had on order. I went to the store and of course it wasn't in. To me no biggie, just wasn't meant to be, I can wait.
    The seller wanted me to give hime a report about the amp so I just emailed him and said what happened. I just got home from work, checked my email and behold a email from the seller. He offered me a loaner of one of his cabs until mine came in. I was like HOLY S#!t!!!
    He sent a second email just to point out he wasn't kidding. I graciously said no.

    I just wanted to share this story and just to show that even though there is a world with alot of hate and idiots there are some good decent people left.

    Sorry for the long post but I had to. I will update when I plug in.

    No shit! too many times people are out ass-raping others. Me, I am a firm believer in what goes around comes around. Don't screw people now, and you in turn won't get screwed later in life. It works! (Most of the time )
