Hi Friends! Have a line on a used (1998) KT-45 in red Tolex with newer tubes. The chassis is signed by Dr. Z in marker. It is advertized, and looks to be in excellent condition both in function and cosmetics and DOES have the Ultra Linear OT with the "Cin Tran-3232" label. So...what do you all feel is a fair price...not including shipping costs? Thanks!
Put it through a nice cab. It's a loud amp, takes pedals well and is guitar friendly. I love it with the Z-Best. I also liked it with some Weber speakers both ceramic and AlNiCo Silvers and Blues. I did it that way to cut back on the volume.
I'm Rick James...
Hmm,I paid $1200 for a 2011 and thought I got a good deal. If I bought this one I would send it to the Doc anyway for a tube change and overhaul which would probably bring the total somewhere near my price.

I guess I'm late to the party here, but used Z-amps command on average about 60% of their new sales price (on eBay, that is). Without any rhyme or reason, though, some routinely go for more (MAZ and Remedy = 65%) and others go lower (Route, KT, and SRZ = 55%). Seems random to me, but the trends don't lie.
PS. Those are head prices specifically; I generally don't track combos and such...

Just sent my payment for the red '98 head. After a lot of great conversation with the owner, I'm feeling like it will be a great amp for the price! He's including some very nice NOS tubes as well as some spares with the deal. Miniwatt EF-86, GE 5AR4, etc. I'll follow up when I receive it...hopefully by the end of next week!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
