The reason for this post is that today I received an email from a guy who was asking how he could make sure he bought a good used guitar amp and not one that had been hammered. He was looking at an expensive Marshall and I guess was going to part with some serious 'dosh' so who could blame him for being cautious.
There must be countless people out there looking at purchasing used/second hand guitar amps that aren't really sure how to make sure they don't buy a 'bad un'
Believe me, I've had many amps and pieces of kit through the workshop from people who bought from ebay and such like, they thought they were buying good stuff, but turned out not to be the case.
So how do you make sure you buy a reliable piece of kit? Well in all honesty you can never be 100% sure, but you can minimise the risk. I wrote an article about Buying Used Guitar Amps which is on the About-Guitar-Amps website, so if you're in the market for a used amplifier, take a look and save yourself some possible grief.
