    Here’s a great, lightly used head that I picked up a while ago for a band that unfortunately is now defunct. I’ve been playing GK’s for many years and wanted the GK tone and class AB slam, and this head delivers. Ironically, the rack I bought for it arrived after the band had broken up so neither the head or rack made it to a gig or even a rehearsal.

    The head super clean and could pass for new, but I want to point out that there is a slight bulge on one side of the case that is apparently there to accommodate the power transformer. Please see photos. You can see on the inside of the case how it was bumped out to give it the clearance it needs. Don't know if this is common with this model, but that's how this one was built. It doesn't effect the performance in any way - amp sounds great and is LOUD - but wanted to mention it

    Here's the specs on the head: 1001 RB Specs

    Here's the specs on the rack: SKB Shallow Roto Rack - 3U

    As far as any potential trades go, I already have too much amplification, but I am looking for a 5 string PJ or JJ. Really only interested in a full-sized P body or downsized jazz body (I can't handle full sized Jazz basses anymore) with a 34" scale. Any trades would need to be on the lighter side - around 9 lbs or less. A Sadowsky 5 string would be ideal, plus $$$ on my end as appropriate.

    Other options:

    Sadowsky 4 string
    Good American P-Basses (Fender, Nash, Lakland, Lull, etc.)
    Spector USA or Czech 4 strings

    Comes with the power cable, special GK speaker cable for biamping with GK cabs and owners manual. The SKB rack is mint and available for $75.

    PayPal is preferred, but I can make other arrangements if necessary. I will split shipping (CONUS only).

    I got an inquiry on trading this head plus the Epi cabs I have for sale for a bass. I've updated the listing for trade considerations.
