Fender Power Chorus Guitar Amplifier w/ Footswitch: What should I ask for it?

I have a 1990 Fender Power Chorus guitar amplifier.

It is in really good condition.
Made in the U.S.A.
2×12" Fender Special Design Speakers
2 Channels, Effects Loops,
Adjustable: Chorus, Reverb, Boost
and a bunch of stuff I really don't know how to utilize.

Back says
Input Power
120 V ~ 60 Hz

I can't seem to find a lot about them. I think they were only made a couple of years before they starting making the Ultra Chorus, which didn't have as many features.

I'm going to have to sell it but I don't know what to ask for it.

That was the first thing I did. As I said, I couldn't find much on them. All of the prices have either been for broken amps, the prices were no longer shown or were in another country and weren't recent.
I was hoping someone familiar with Fender amps could give me an approximate value.
Thanks that sounds reasonable, although slightly lower than I was hoping. I thought 400 WATTS was high but I was just listing exactly what it said on the back of the amp.

Joshua, you are probably looking at $250 to $350 for your amplifier. Check Http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=… for some current pricing. The actual output of these amplifiers was much less than the 400 watt power consumption; my Ultimate Chorus was rated at 65 watts per channel. Best regards, Dana

P.S. The power consumption is always less than the rated power, as amplifiers are not 100% efficient. I am pretty sure your amplifier is rated the same as the Ultimate Chorus at 65 watts per channel; the 400 watts reference is just to make sure you do not exceed the current limitations of your AC power source. In this case, the amplifier would draw approximately 3.5 amperes at 115 volts (Watts = Voltage x Current). Hope this makes sense.
