got it for 650...

here is the write up on ebay for the amp... in the pics it looks like new

This is practically a new Line 6 Spider Valve 212 designed by Bogner. This amp was bought for the sole purpose of using in an indoor jam session at a birthday party a few months ago. After the party, it was brought to our studio where it was never used again except to show it to a few interested people. It still has the info card on the front of the amp and is in amazing shape. It still looks like it should be on the showroom floor at the music store. The sounds are incredible and and the versatility of the amp makes a great gigging amp or studio combo. The technology of Line 6's tone and effects mixed with the power and warmth of the Bogner tube section make this amp truly unique. The amp has 2 12ax7's and 2 6L6's. Our chief engineer was so impressed by that he went and bought the head version and sold his old Marshall. That speaks volumes about this amp. Here is some more info I found online: The Spider Valve 212 from Line 6 features a Spider III engine mated in perfect harmony to a genuine tube amplifier. Designed by famed amp man Reinhold Bogner for unmatched performance and responsiveness. The amp is built around 2 - 12AX7 preamp tubes and 2 - 6L6 power tubes. You can choose from 12 amp models and 7 Smart Control Effects. 36 user-programmable channels save your settings, or you can play through over 300 artist-created presets. All the tones are voiced by the legendary Celestion Vintage 30. Finally you can have the unrivaled versatility of Line 6 amp and effects modeling with the performance and feel of a world-class tube amplifier. Line 6 Spider Valve 212 40W Guitar Combo Amp Features: 40W Class AB tube amp through (2) 12AX7 preamp tubes and (2) 6L6 power tubes 2X12" configuration featuring Premium Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers 12 dialed in amp models (channel voices) that deliver a complete tonal range from shimmering clean to insane grind. 7 Smart Control Effects including Tape Echo, Multi-Tap, Sweep Echo, Flanger/Chorus, Phaser, Tremolo and Reverb. 36 user programmable channels 300+ artist created presets covering the greatest guitar tones of all time POD® 2.0 XLR direct out for studio direct tone.

I figured i made it to 40 in a few days, i need to treat myself...

1000 posts also.... biggrin.gif

Good job!! You'll love the amp. I know I really enjoyed mine. Can't really beat it for the money. Let me know if you have any questions as I'm very familiar with it since I owned one.

Now you need to get the Line 6 shortboard foot controller. This really makes the amp player friendly.

While your at it get some ear plugs as the thing is the loudest 40 watts you'll ever hear.

Dude, bad luck I feel for ya. The amp rocks but I guess not in your case. wink.gif Hope you can get your money back, Ebay sellers that don't pack their stuff well should get negative feedback.

Man that is awful sad.gif i hope you get cash back quickly. Parcel companies really need to buck their ideas up. Try and enjoy your bday and you will get the amp and it will be great when you get it. Make sure you have a good day and dont let this spoil it.
