    After searching for one of these for about 20 years this little guy pops up locally for $400. I couldn't get to the sellers house fast enough. He said the Craigslist ad had only been up for 15 minutes before I called him. Took me 30 minutes to get there and he got six more calls in that time offering him $500 for it. I told him I would match it and ended up getting it first. It's all original and in good shape for it age. I asked him were he got it and he said he bought it from a neighbor back in the 90's and it has been in his living room ever since. I'm not sure what surprised me more, the fact that I actually found one or the fact that it doesn't have a single scratchy pot. Either way, like all lead 12's, it sound great and I couldn't be happier with it.

    The stack for $400-$500, I think that you did good.

    Congratulations!

    It seems the price on these has nearly tripled in the past couple years? IIRC, pre pandemic similar could be had for $175 to $225, or so? Either way, great score in this day and age.

    And @jcm800gridlock , that's a wonderfully clean example, right there!

    HNUAD,
    Gene

    Thank you Gene, yes like everything else in the last couple of years, the price has jumped considerably. Besides inflation, I think these have become more sought after now because a lot of people record from home. That and they are cute little monsters that my wife allows me to keep in the living room.:flex:

    Congrats @Drinkingdeath01 ! Wow, that's a beautiful little rig right there! I really need to check out the hype on these. I figure since I am a big fan of Lead 100s, I would really dig these. I can imagine those little cabs sound SO good.

    Wow! Never seen one in a Plexi style shell. And the matching cabinets! Very cool.

    Congrats! Great looking thing. Saw a plexi one a couple of years ago and thought it was over-priced. Now I know I should have jumped. At least I knew to jump on my Lead 12 combo and Lead 100 MOSFET head.
