Buying amps online...

Talk about the rest of the rig - amps, effects, valves, leads, wireless set-ups, racks, anything that brings out the best in your axes.

Probably not the best place to ask advice when the host sells said amp...

Yeah I thought it might be a bit taboo but I really can't afford a brand new one because of my uni placements/text books etc.

I really didn't mean to offend. :(

I know a lot of you guys buy and sell amps quite regularly on places like ebay and even this forum, and was hoping someone could spot me some advice/guidance

again sorry if I offended

Its lucky dip buying from an unknown seller. May be great, may have had its necked wrung to the last minute of the tube's life...
It is a risk you take when buying off the Bay.
I personally would never buy a tube amp off eBay.
I only buy anything musical from Shane or very occasionally off the Buy and Sell forum on here. Places I trust.
