    Scored both amps and both cabs in the same day. Paid $1900 for all. One killer Mesa .50 cal + and a Mark iic 60 watt combo. Both amps have that amazing early Mark series tone that I love. The cabs have V30's in them instead of the traditional EV speakers, but for the price, I can't complain.
    The V30's are brighter then the EV's and I'm not quite convinced if I will keep them in these cabs but I'm still in the honeymoon stage so we'll see.

    I called Mesa to see about getting the iic modded to the iic+ specs and they literally told me to call back in April. I asked about being put on a waiting list and they flat out told me no. Apparently Mike Bendinelli is burned out on doing mods that he's now only doing repairs. I'm sure it has everything to do with Gibson buying Mesa and everyone expecting him to retire and take his mods with him.

    Either way I had a good day.

    As much as nobody would believe me, I do have some amp standards. I have what I call the 15 minute rule. If I can't dial in a sweet tone within the first 15 minutes, then its gone. Now that tone must be original, not a generic type of sound. I've sold almost as much as what I have. I won't name the guilty but I have no problem moving gear out the door.:agreed:

    The Mark IIC was/is worth at least $1900. You did great.
    Congratulations!

    It’s a good thing you got those because I was worried you didn’t have enough amps lol. Congrats on the new Mesa’s - those are sweet!

    Maybe try calling Gibson instead ;)

    Thanks Dose, I really like the mark iic+'s and the iii's. They have a similar tone. The mark iv is also a favorite, its much darker but is clean and articulate also.

    One of these days I'll clean the room up and post some current pics, there's some older ones posted around here somewhere. Its getting crowded fast. Lol
