Take a look at the listing below. Could I get your expert opinions on the value/reasonable price of this "player's amp" (ex the $100 shipping, which I could avoid by picking up)?

I think his expectations may be out of whack judged by the BIN price (did he really pay $600 for a blackface mod? Is that the going rate?). But who knows where the reserve is. Anyway, just interested in any thoughts as it looks like it might have the stuff for some interesting times/tones..... ... K:MEWAX:IT

Yes the asking price is a bit high, but he'll hopefully adjust after it doesn't fly out of his door.

Can you explain the term "Frankenstein"?

Frankenstein...just because it's put together out of spare/non-original parts: non-original cab, non-original faceplate, circuit mods, etc. Just far from the original specs; not meant to be disparaging just going for some minor humor 8)
