    Brand new from Poland: the HandBox R-400, as made famous in the thread New amp from Poland - HandBox R-400. The conversation and vids there tell the story. This is a stripped down, handmade head that many say will cop the tones of a Mesa Walkabout — just louder and cleaner (I can't speak to this myself, as I've not owned a Walkabout yet).

    Needless to say, this is a pretty rare find in the US; I imagine there are less than ten of these stateside at the moment. One caveat: while this amp is like-new, as received, there are some minor imperfections in fit and finish. For instance, the nameplate on the front-cover panel is lightly scratched, and a couple of the metal corners are slightly dinged up. Basically, what you might expect from a small-batch, handmade piece. The condition overall is still excellent.

    $700 shipped CONUS, which is at least $50 cheaper than it would cost to import a stock model from Poland. Will ship in the original box with all original materials.

    Measurements: 15" W x 13.5" D x 4.5" H, 21.8 lbs

    Possible trade interests: Fender Aerodyne Jazz bass (non-export model), Mesa Walkabout
