    I made him an offer of 1 grand, so be aware the offers he got are probably nowhere near his asking price. And also put it in my shopping basket. Damn it's a bit sad that Eddie's funeral still needs to happen and someone tries to make a few 10.000 $ abusing his name

    He rejected my offer within minutes. Maybe someone should shoot him a 1.5k offer.

    I saw it. And the meme above perfectly frames my sentiment.

    B..b..b..but it’s a plexi and everything!

    People are sad money grabbers. Let’s face it who is going to buy that amp with that add at that price?

    he's charging $2350, for each piece of white tape he put on the front.

    I guess it's also the same brand of tape Eddie used to stripe Frankie?

    Here is an early Jose modded amp. He hadn't worked out using the existing inputs yet so hence the front panel hack. I was told this is the head used on "Up From the Ashes" as evidenced by the colored tape sliver codes for each song on the album. Currently running a nice NOS set of Sylvania 6CA7s.

    Holy crap..:facepalm:

    It states it was owned and used by Henry Paul of The Outlaws, a legendary band and guitarist in their own right..But 40 freakin' grand? Absolutely ridiculous. :rofl:

    One can get an all original '69 Plexi in MUCH better shape (And with the original logo) for about $37,000 less than that..Or possibly even cheaper!

    And agreed that he's using Eddie's passing as a lame excuse to sell an overpriced, butchered-up beat-to hell amp with an ugly logo made out of tape. Actually, I wouldn't give that price for it even it had been Ed's main amp!

    So basically the little plates are worth around 198k$ nice. Probably this amp wasn't even switched on by EVH.

    It is the three plus one preamp circuit just ad a preamp tube to the gain stage and make it work . It is what solder junky’s do so if you want one go sit in a class room and take electronics get a soldering Iron and build one
