    Has anyone here bought a major purchase off ebay? I'm looking to buy a 5150 combo. What would be a reasonable price?

    I bought a number of high priced guitars and effects with no problem, but I know someone who got burned bad, so be careful.
    The problem is that once the bidding starts, it can lead to a bidding war, and you might wind up paying more than you would at a store.
    Phone a few music stores if you can, and ask what they'd sell a used 5150 combo for. Even if they don't have one they can give you a ballpark figure. There's quite a few of them out there. Good luck.

    I bought my Wolf Special and Digitech processor on ebay...a good rule of thumb if you're bidding is set limits on what you're gonna pay and also determine whether you're gonna be saving money. Unless you REALLY want the item or it's hard-to-find, it's not worth trying to outbid someone. Also keep in mine the size of the 5150 combo...the shipping costs will add to your final price. For an amp, I'd probably search around you nearest music stores.

    Now that's what I'm talking about Rick!!!
    Back to the subject at hand. I've bought
    a Wolfgang Standard off of eBay and I had
    a great seller. Just check out the sellers
    feedback and get a feel of how they do business. And in the case of heavy amps, make sure they've shipped stuff like this before. I also bought a 5150 combo online, but it was from someone who does this for a living. Had no problems there. Just be careful, and get to know the seller BEFORE you bid.

    Hey Rick,

    No big deal about the girl thing. The confusion is my fault as I've never really
    made mention one way or the other. Since having a slight problem over at the Peavey forum, I've decided that I should make it known that I'm a 30 year old, for the next 18 days at least, female guitar player who's
    been playing for 20 years now. I'm sure most
    people don't think much about a chick having
    3 Wolfgangs, a 5150 Combo, and a box of effects pedals. I'm the only one I know of.
    Makes for a big surprise at a music store full of men when they hear a GIRL wailing out EVH!!

    Take Care
    Trina
