    yesterday i went out with the intent to buy a second hand GK 1001rb II, i walked away with a 1001rb I without having even checked whether it was I or II.
    i've since started researching the 1001rb I and have heard of LOTS of reliability issues with it.
    i have checked my serial with the serials that were considered faulty and it doesnt fit into the "faulty" category.

    nevertheless, im still HELL Scared that something will go wrong. i intend on gigging with this head. its in absolutely perfect condition, looks brand new, i paid $1100 aus.

    should i sell it again? or trade it for a labsystems 6x10 cab?

    i dont know *** i should do with this 1001rb I head... im fretting hardcore!

    I have a 1001RB head and just purchased a 1001RBII, My advise to you would be to use the head as much as you can. Usually when GK heads have problems they happen when they are new and not years down the road!
