Re: LP1 Rant warning! (was Re: Looperlative LP1 testers)
I'm thinking of staying with my Repeater and ditching
the Looperlative. Bob's offered to take it back but I
imagine he'll just sell it for his $1500 price. I'm
not looking to make money on this, but I'd like to
retreive my full purchase amount. $1320 gets it
shipped to your door if you're in the USA.
