hey rideit why dont you open the ******* amp up and look at the serial number on the board! its a ******* sticker on the bottom you took plenty of pictures of that is worn off...
Let me give some words of advice to both the seller and the buyer,
As a seller on the internet you have no means of knowing what the buyer is going to do with the product once they get it. if they are displeased, you as a seller are obligated to make things right to a certain extent.
now as a buyer, you have the right to be upset if a product comes in unsatisfactory form. IF it comes like this, and in this case which rideit has a birthsheet with a serial but the serial in the pictures he keeps posting from every which angle is rubbed off then open the amp and compare serials! if they match up then the seller is at fault in which the buyer at his expense ships the item back in the condition he last sees it in. once the seller receives the amp a refund shall be issued.
both of you guys int he deal, not previous owners friends before etc. go about doing this. I honestly dont believe OP sent the item in that condition.
with that said if this is not resolved OP you said you need cash to help your build? how much ill loan you as much as i can. have rideit send you the amp back AFTER pictures of the serial on the board are shown and they match up to the birth sheet.
