This head (VH100R) is in new condition (same head Opeth uses). I am asking $1200. In the 30 minutes I spent playing on this head, I really enjoyed it (has since been packed away in its packaging retaining its new condition), though I cannot keep it.. It nailed the Opeth tone as well as Paul Gilbert's and Mattias Eklundh's. I am losing some money on this, so if you wanted it like new, than this is a much better deal than ordering from Laney. Let me know if your interested/have any questions!
