    Just curious as I have a friend offering to sell me one. I don't really need it but it seems like a good deal at $250 for a 700 watt head.

    250? get it. Working gk1001rbII, even if its beat up cosmetically. They usually go for about 400 to 550 depending on condition.

    Any other thoughts? I want to grab this before he changes his mind or sells it to someone else.
     
  4. I saw a used one at a music swap store for $650 so yes get it!

    Recently? I know they have been around for several years so I'm sure the value of them used has declined.

    I owned one for about a year and a half. Solid amp. Modern sounding to my ears (I own an ampeg b15n and use a 370 acoustic) and loud through a lot of speakers. Pretty versatile too.

    If it's in good working condition, it is a good deal.

    Well I went ahead and grabbed this head and all I can say is wow! It's in great shape and everything appears to work perfectly. I almost feel bad only paying $250 for a head that still sells new for $750! I will try to get some pics up later tonight. Now I have some decisions to make regarding my rig setup. :hyper:
     
  10. That was a steal, great bargain.

    I'm sure that would sound awesome but how much does it weigh?
     
  15. Those beasts are 94 lbs. Tilt back with wheels makes it a little more maneuverable though.

    That setup would roar though.

    get a pair of Neo 212.
     
  18. You just robbed a bank, dude. I paid $more for mine, and I felt like *I* robbed a bank. All the head you'll ever need, if the tone works for you.
