8 or 9 would be a steal for both. Hopefully he took care of everything. I love mesa aside from how quick they eat tubes. I'm just too poor to ever have the cash for a rectifier.

Just watch you don't offend him with a low ball offer. 950 would be a good offer.

I would offer 900, if he bites it's a really good deal. Make sure you say you have the cash in hand when you do, that's a big incentive.

guy probably knows what he has and is after, depending on where he's at, what his situation is he'd probably be hard to make budge

Most of the new Mesa stuff is fucking trash, other than the Mark series heads i've never liked any of those amps personally, you could sell that for probably a decent chunk of cash and get a good amp though. Unless of course you want to play bad Nu-metal or butt rock.

trash that head then. The Mark V is a solid amp, but nor what you're looking for.
Sell that shit, get an Engl or Soldano or Diezel. I've had all 4, and my favorite and current stage amp is a modded ENGL FIREBALL 100w. Fucking NASTY, best sounding head I've ever encountered. I go through equipment fast, but I'll be holding onto this one forever.
Here's a video:

The Diezel Herbert or Soldano SLO are both great for the sound your after, or honestly if your budget isn't that huge check out some of the newer Laney stuff, people tend to shit on it but I think its great, good enough for Sabbath, good enough for me.

I got to demo this head a month ago in jersey. Totally fucking solid and I've never been a huge fan of mesa for the price and the tube life. But I'd even take this over a rectifier any day.
