I am sorry to hear this.

It is not yours because there was no agreement that you could keep it.

If you feel he owes you money for being stuck with it for so long you can sue him for compensation but you have no right to keep the amp at this point.

I am sorry this is not what you were hoping to hear.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
