    Some of you might remember I bought a new Chicago Music Exchange Marshall Astoria Custom from them a couple years ago. They had 10 of them made and they were all numbered. I got the last one number 10. Anyway, I just never bonded with the amps tone and apperence and it got very little if any play time so I sold it about a year ago and yes of course for only 1800.00 (new it was 3100.00)...ugh! So this afternoon I get an e-mail from a sale person at Chicago Music Exchange asking how I'm doing, if I still have the amp and if I would be interested in selling it back to them. I have never had this happen with any amp, I am wondering whats up, do they have a serious Buyer, maybe a famous Buyer who wants one? Dam, I just wish I would not have sold it now, oh well. Thoughts??

    I never had that with musical equipment but with cars. It was just an enticement for me to call them in which they offer a lowball price for my car and then to sell me a new one.

    Not saying that is the case here.

    I should have thought more about it before I replied and told him I do have it and I am interested just to see how this may have played out :facepalm:.

    Interesting..:hmm:

    Considering CME does a lot of dealing in vintage and collectable stuff, maybe that amp has gained some kind of rare or collectable value?

    I've bought from cme in the past, and they seem to be pretty straight shooters. I would bet they have someone looking for one, or they sold all they had and want one to keep.

    I'd bet they'd have offered you more than you sold it for..being they know what you paid.

    It sounds like a sales pitch to me . You start talking to them and the next thing you are buying A amp

    I contacted them and told them I not only wanted one but I NEEDED one, I told them money is no issue, they told me they had some contacts on locating me the amp. I told them to get ahold of them asap and told them Im willing to spend $10,000 if I had to... I need the amp now.

    Guess you were one of the guys they hit up! Lol

    If any of you really need an Astoria and are willing to pay $10K, I suppose I could let one go. :wave:
