One thing that also helps (at least in a backwater town like the one that I live in:
Totally abuse your buyers prejudices; for example, if I were to (finally) build (and bloody finish) an amp, the last thing I would do is to put it on ebay or any such site sice people around here think that everyone on ebay'll rip you off.
I'd build at least 3 amps, package them in a clean, sleek box, think up a snazzy name for the type, register a small company to sell them under a company name, and either find a shop that'll sell them or a band/musician to promote it (this will of course only work if the amp is built with attention to detail and produces an actual good sound).
People around these parts still believe in shops, they'll go for exclusive pricing, and if you'll craft a lot of the parts for yourself, it'll be hand-made, wich is a major selling point.

So thank god for down-to-earth people, that still appreciate a good piece of kit (and then: thank god for mouth-to mouth advertising)
