    Saw what appeared to be a Mark III for sale cheap on facebook the other day. As soon as I saw it, I messaged and offered to take it off the previous owner's hands.

    Turns out it's a 60W Mark III Purple Stripe short head. It needs some TLC (dusty, smells like cigs, dirty pots) but it turns on and I can get sound through the speakers. If it doesn't work as well as I'd like, I'll probably send it in to Mesa for service.

    They only wanted $200 for it and a Carvin V412. I don't think I'll get a deal like this again ever. I can't wait to get it back to 100% and crank it!

    That's stolen-amp level pricing. Assuming it isn't, excellent find!

    Thanks, I still can't believe it. I wasn't getting the sketchy vibes when I went over to pick it up; owner seemed pretty genuine.

    Nice find. I would almost feel bad taking it for that. Almost.

    Sick find! Hell, you could probably sell the cab for around $200 and it'll be like getting the Mark III for free :lol:

    Funny enough, I bought the exact same cab type a few months earlier for $60 to keep in the practice space; now I have two.
