Gallien Krueger 1001RB II with Custom Ventilated 2 Space Rack
I have decided to sell my GK 1001RB II amp head as I think I am going to play the field a bit more. The head is in outstanding condition, operates like new and the only flaw I can find is a chip in the paint in the bottom front from the previous rack solution.
The cool thing about this head, however, is the unique custom rack. I was very frustrated with having to use a 3 or 4 space rack in order to provide the ventilation space the head needed to stay cool (because the RB heads have the fan on top of the head and you need to keep it clear). So, I customized a birch wood rack (covered in cool tweed tolex) to 1) provide the ventilation it needs and 2) store the speakon and power cables without having to unplug them from the head.
I am including a custom D2F padded cover made specifically for this solution.

I think I had this priced too high because of the emotional element of putting so much time into customizing the rack. I am a perfectionist and do not work fast but am very satisfied when it turns out nicely.
$600 delivered lower 48 sounds about right since the heads seem to be going for about $450-475 used. Delivery will be about $50 so that will leave $100-$75 for the custom rack.
Note to self - don;t go into the custom rack business.
