...ebay Half Stack listing - be careful

Postby OldSchoolDave » Thu Oct 23, 2014 1:00 pm

I've been having an off-line conversation regarding this rig:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-Hi-Watt-DR ... 1524654513

Not to slam the seller who, as I understand it, is a consignor - not the actual owner, but there are several issues that cause concern.

First and foremost, of course, are the "bullet holes" in the chassis from past mods. They significantly reduce the value of the head.

Secondly, the pic inside the cab was just published (wasn't in the Reverb listing), and any potential buyers should note:

1) replacement baffle (knotty pine ply, sloppy pencil markings, no center post)
2) Inferior model of Fane speakers, at least one of which has been reconed
3) fiberglas insulation - unnecessary, messy and potentially risky to the speakers

Just posted as a heads-up. It's not as "unreal" and "killer" as an original Hylight Hiwatt halfstack...
