I was watching that also. Id really be surprised if the seller actually ended up letting that go for that much. If so, he gave it away.
Can he actually do that?...back out on an auction after it has closed? I don't know what he was thinking with a reserve price so low. I am actually bummed that i missed out on it. I picked mine up last week for $1300 (shipped), which at the time I thought I was getting away with one.

Theres a lot of dodgey stuff that goes on in Ebay. Dont take too much notice of what goes on there. There are some definite bargains to be found there, but you are also taking a chance sometimes in getting a lemon or a seller just fishing to see what his stuff is worth. I think if you are interested in buying something second hand regarding a Dr Z amp your best bet is buying something out of the Buy and Sell section on here from a senior member of the forum if the price is right. There are numerous good folk on here that will not screw you over and do everything to make sure you come to a reasonable, amicable deal with them.
Call me cynical, but somehow this auction doesn't pass the most basic smell test: common sense.
Anyone who knows enough about gear to seek out a Z amp surely is smart enough to have a better idea as to it's value.
Nope, something's not exactly right here. Yes, sometimes bargains appear on the 'bay, but never from an owner who was actually the user; most often by a seller who just came by an item in some sideways fashion and doesn't really know it's value.

I was watching this auction, but couldn't bid because I haven't sold my current amp yet. I emailed the seller as to why he was selling the EZG and he said he had bought a Mesa Boogie ElectraDyne since the EZG didn't get dirty enough for him. Sounded legit and his rating seems to be fairly positive. Sometimes you need something to move fast and you price it accordingly. Some people don't have to worry about money so much.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!
Jul 10, 2020 7:40:17 GMT -7
The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.
Jul 10, 2020 12:56:49 GMT -7
GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.

GuitarZ: After finally training myself after 4 days to not bother trying to turn on the guest bathroom light because of the power outage, I just found myself bracing for the sound of the generator as I opened the garage door and it's now quiet. Power Back!
