How awesome is this amp? I wanted to go marshall but have gained interest in laney as they sound a bit alike and have poor relative resale value(great news for me)! Plus Tony Iommi uses them, and he had a pretty awesome classic rock tone.

Any input on this one?

Depends what tones you're going for, if you're going for the later Black Sabbath sound then by all means go for the GH50L. Keep in mind it's a single channel amp, though, so if you want cleans you're gonna have to go for one of the VH amps.

If you want the earlier Black Sabbath sounds, you're going to have to shoot for a Laney Supergroup or Laney Klipp head.

I was skeptical about this, but with the footswitchable second gain knob, the amp can be setup with a clean and distortion "channel" if you do it right.

I'm a simple guy. One channel is enough for me. I'm just looking for an awesome sounding british amp

In that case the GH should be more than enough. I'd also check out the Soldano Avenger, you can find them used for around $1000.

Great amp(s). I have played the Iommi signature version, the bass boost switch is awesome.
