Depends what they are asking. You may have to end up changing out leaky caps, and that is a serious pita. The "vintage" solid state stuff is so far superior to modern offerings (sound and power wise) that it's hard to believe we once could make stuff sound so good (and rate the power output accurately) But, it DOES have to be maintained every so often. I say "listen to it if you can". If not, ask the seller for a buy back guarentee...(just in case it something is the matter). Good luck, bro.
