This gumtree seller.....

What's Hot
jonnyburgojonnyburgo Frets: 6085
Has been peddling this amp for I guess 5+ years, I remember having communications with him regarding this very amp years ago, he got extremely shirty when pressed on the model and pulled the old "Ive been selling since you were in nappies, how dare you question my knowledge"

Apparently this Vox does Vox, Fender and Marshall all in one box without modelling! ooh fancy!

Anyways I might get in touch with him for chuckles, has 3 out of 4 bad ratings for rudeness and item not as described.

    I got as far as
    Has been peddling this amp for I guess 5+ years
    and guessed exactly what amp it was going to be!

    :)

    I see he’s still trying to misrepresent it as an AC30...

    What’s ridiculous is that it’s actually in pretty nice condition and quite a rare model, and if he simply listed it with an honest description at half that price, someone might even pay that much for one.
    "Take these three items, some WD-40, a vise grip, and a roll of duct tape. Any man worth his salt can fix almost any problem with this stuff alone."

    Ahh that guy.  What a nob.  It's good that Gumtree have implemented the ratings system now so he can be called out on his behaviour.

    Ok here we go.

    ME - Hi, can you tell me the model of this amp please? 

    Regards 

    Jon


    HIM - 
    Sorry, but that's for someone to come and try it, " before buying ". Not discussing models etc that VOX made. As you can see from the photos it's same size as an AC30  but not a regular AC30. This was of a limited run of export models destined for USA. That's is why it is unusual and very rare to find any in Europe let alone the UK. I call it my AC125 Twin and the Zking of AC30's. Have had it 15 - 20 years or more and was shocked to hear how loud or clear this amp is. It blows people away compared to normal common AC30's.

    The point is I get too many lookers, and curiosity types and virtually all dreamers not prepared to spend that kind of money. As I said a shop in Holland is asking £4500 plus on theirs.

    Leave it with you to do your research and then come and buy.

    Red flags even for very casual Gumtree visitors like myself; 

    1) 'No timewasters or know it alls'
    2) One single photograph which shows very little of what the amp actually is.  
    3) That price (haha)

    Still, he's open to trades, even 'non music gear'.

    Fascinating example for potential buyers of who and what to avoid on Gumtree.  Would warn my kids if they were only compelled to buy guitar gear the way I am.

    He’s also got a Sound City Echomaster that he’s trying to pass off as a Binson Echorec for a frankly optimistic £1900.

    A single poor photo that shows a tiny slither of the top of the amp. Most people put more effort in when trying to sell something for a tenner. One could be forgiven for thinking that it's almost like he has something to hide

    This clown is all over gumtree with his crazy sales technique!

    Go on, I dare you to ask for specific details, I got a right barrage of abuse from him and then a message pretending to be from gumtree in block capitals to say I’ve been blocked and that I will be investigated, the clown didn’t realise that in the heading it said “from Steve”

    what a bellend, all I did was asked for details

    I remember this guy from ages ago, even if it were some weird rare model his attitude would prevent him from selling it anyway, it's like he knows its something but doesn't know what that something is.

    I can only assume the Vox flight case in Holland is made from gold leaf with embedded emeralds and feature Rubys.

    Well, how can anyone resist such temptation as this? I’ve asked if he has a 19 track for sale as I’ve never needed more than 20 and the rest are a waste,

    All I can say is thank goodness for copy and paste, here is a little exchange from last week

    Me - you still haven’t clarified what you are selling, I need to be sure that id I’m going to spend that much money that I know what I’m buying, to be honest I’ve just read your gumtree reviews 3 out of the 4 are bad, this puts me off a bit.

    Him- I dont have any bad reviews, and have been on Gumtree for 9+ years.  I have had people trying to rip me off so am very much aware of the 90% low life of Gumtree users.

    Am not peddling anything all these years, and you interpret what you want. I am a retired respectable music and video producer with tons of gearfrom my studios which started selling off bit by bit in last few years. Over 60 plus guitars, amps, keyboards , electronic Drums, effects etc and tons of recording gear , analogue and digital. Check my listings for a flavour.

    I suspect you are just another dreamer and nosey on this amp and with no money, I get them all the time.

    A real buyer recognises the gear  , and jumps in the car to get. One buyer came all the way from Newcastle after having gone through same idiotic nonsense and beliefs, and bought my brand new  array and active sub base for £ 600 and  was soooooo glad he came and trusted my paranoia and was same age and delighted with what he got and now gigs with it as a solo artist. Still have his email somewhere and think phone number,  and just FYI have also bought over the years many many non music gear stuff on ebay and have 100% feedback so whatever you are looking at is nonsense and very likely one of the many troublemakers I have had to report, as stalkers and harassing me , my ads etc simply because I would bot sell to them. AM VERY fussy as to the character and type pf person am selling to.  These fellas reveal their true colours as foul mouthed chavs and got many banned.

    So sceptics are not my cup of tea and your loss :)

    good luck with the basic AC30, as its outclassed by my amp for sure. I  was happy to sell it 5 years ago to a local guitarist who wanted his solos to cuth though with his band. Took it to his house, and when I heard him play through it and the clarity and volume, decided not to sell and he was devastated when I left and took it back. Today am selling all my big bulky gear off, guitars and valuable stuff will leave to the grandkids etc, as eacj year the gear grows in value

    @jonnyburgo ; 401 words and still he failed to give you even the slightest hint on what he's selling. Outstanding.

    I quite like him, he comes across as a tad eccentric, but funny all the same.Or he wants you to show up at an address with an expensive instrument to trade with him so he can giggle at you from behind the curtains as you stand at next doors front door all confused.

    This seller has been peddling tat since the dawn of time. Even back in the dim and distant past, his Gumtree ads screamed ‘AVOID!’ :(

    Some of the correspondence shared on this (and the earlier) thread is just bizarre.

    So, I got bored but it was quite funny









    Sorry , thought you meant tansistors


    It rage VOX early 80's Export model made especially for the USA  as in the 80's the AC30 was no longer considered powerful enough.

    So yes some people refer to it as a V125 amp not to be confused with a Trannie 125

    Hi Steve, 

    Could you answer a few questions re the Vox? 

    1. Speaker Type? 
    2. Is is JMI, VSL or which era of manufacture? 
    3. Hand wired or PCB? 
    4. Output rating? Are you saying it’s 125w? 

    Many thanks and look forward to your response. 

    James.

    Round objects.

    Availability of the VOX V125 was only "limited" in the sense that it did not sell in the hoped for quantities because it was;
    1. expensive
    2. not entirely reliable
    3. most heinously of all, not an AC30 clone. (How could it be?)

    No, but sometimes people with learning difficulties or mental illness dont know they are doing it. However this thread could very easily turn into a witch hunt, and to be fair guys none of us really want to buy anything from him anyway. If anyone has concerns about him being a con man or something sinister or dangerous Im sure Gumtree would have shut him down by now.

    Incidentally I did contact him about his Greco bass, he said first off that the photo was not of the actual guitar and we both agreed to wait until he loaded some actual photos next week when he took the guitar out of storage, my thoughts at this stage are he is genuine, he's just not running down the same path as most people, which is fine.
