Sunn Coliseum Lead
« on: November 13, 2009, 09:19:42 am »

Wow!
Wish I could have grabbed this... it's the most mint model I've ever seen!
...Showroom condition!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360204193123&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Now watch how many people try to sell theirs at an inflated price... no matter the condition!

Notice how the bid doubled in the last minute of the auction. The winner has over 1000 feedbacks so it's not some newbe who won.

This reminds me of the recent discussions about price on a couple of other threads elsewhere on the forum. Either this buyer knows something no one else does, or HE REALLY WANTED THAT PARTICULAR EXAMPLE. It certainly was a great specimen.

Like Loudthud I couldn't help but notice this buyer was an experienced Ebayer.

I agree that the winner "REALLY WANTED THAT PARTICULAR EXAMPLE", but the winner only won by $10!
3 people chased it over $750, 2 over $900. That's not an eBay "buy it now" fluke, IMO that's a statement.
Of course, that amp is a real gem, almost looks NOS. It may be the only one left that is that nice, making it truly one of a kind. It's so nice nobody even asked any questions, you can tell everything you need to know just by looking... But IMO it's definitely a "shot in the arm" for the value of Coliseums overall; could even inspire some "back burner" restoration projects onto the front burner. If I was sitting on one I would sure be tempted to get it up before bidders #2 and #3 find the amps that they are also obviously willing to pay up for!

Well, if the winner finds a buyer in a local store that pays twice what eBay brought, I've just found my newest hero.  :wink:
That was a 10 day long open auction in the biggest international open market place on the planet. It would cost more than that amp sold for to even reach .01% of the potential buyers it has been exposed to in the last 10 days.

The same amp was listed on Gbase at, I think, Cream City Music in Wisconsin for $599.  So buying it from a store would have saved big bucks!

I was the unlucky runner-up! I knew it was going to sell for a high price, due to its condition,but did not expect it to get past $900.
The original paperwork broke my heart! Better luck(and hopefully lower price) next time they say....
