	Well, since you obviously know more about the unit than I, I will 
accept these as common market prices, although a good friend of mine had 
a spring reverb unit put into his Gibson for $100 flat, from a local tube 
amp specialist, maybe it's inferior, maybe they're very good friends, I 
don't know...  I prefer analog effects _any_ day over digital, for the 
entire "feeling" I get from my equipment, call me weird, but if I plug 
into a crate amp, I feel really weird playing slide on it, whereas a nice 
old Bassman or Super Reverb just makes me feel at home...  I guess I'm a 
vintage freak too.  Oh, well, nobody's perfect. C=:)
