Tube matching service - As found on Craigslist

I was doing a search on Craigslist and came across this ad. I got a chuckle out of it. I also have one of those "Fantastic Heathkit TC-2" tube matching testers... ;) Below is the ad.

Are you wondering how well the tubes in your amp are holding up, if they are matched? If they are going to need to be replaced soon? I can test your tubes on a fantastic vintage Heathkit TC-2 Tube tester and answer all these questions for you. Cost is determined by how many tubes you want tested, typically to test the tubes out of a typical guitar amp will run you $10.00, if you have allot of tubes that need testing drop me a line we can work something out. I can test your tubes while you wait. You need to remove the tubes from your amp. Drop me a line for more info, I also have lots of tested used and NOS tubes available.
Geesh, I actually feel embarrassed for the guy that placed that ad. But hey, maybe I could compete with him with my old Million Labs model TV. :D
