Finally gave in - HD500x on its way

Recommended Posts

Didn't need to upgrade - not enough difference between HD500 and HD500X.

Well, my eyes are not as good as they were. Brighter display, better switches.

A little more DSP, might be useful.

No new products on Line 6 horizon (sorry Amplifi)

Stupid threads claiming X sounds better...

$299 used in GC website....

Sold!

 

For sale - used HD500 $200

Is this the worst place to try to sell one?

I didn't think I'd care about the DSP, but it did allow me to try some new amp combos and I found two so far already I really like for my really crunchy and my pristine clean.  Just nice to have the option, you know?

I should have the 500X this Wednesday.

So I'll probably put the 500 up on Craigslist for $225 on Thursday. It is on great shape.

I'm in CT, but travel all over New England. If you're interested in purchasing, send me an IM.

I got my HD500X used for us$300 as well and I still feel so lucky it blows me away. I spent the extra money on a new guitar and am now saving for an L2T.

Is that a Wilshire? They were just blowing those out on musiciansfriend for $199 with the probucker pickups. I don't need one, but damn hard to pass up at that price.

It is indeed and I couldn't say no at that price. It's not one of the cool colors, but it's plenty cool enough for me!

Not to hijack this thread, but how's the balance on it? Not a lot of wood for the body, so wondering if it does the SG-style neck/headstock dive.

Yeah a little bit, but it's not bad. The guitar sounds absolutely amazing. And the price, wow.
