Put it this way...if you buy it for 500, its a good deal. If you dont like it, then you are ahead of the game if you want to sell it. I think you'll like it though. Its a solid rockin head.

yup 500 is a very cheap price for that. its got one of the best clean channels of any high gain amp ive played, and the high gain sound is alot like vais sound, so its kinda love it or hate it. tbh, 500 is a good enough deal that i'd get a thd hot plate with that to fully enjoy the amp--it is far too damn loud cranked.

Thats a great price !
Id take that price in a heartbeat. Is it new or used ??
Im pretty sure its listed at 1200-1500$ on there site.

It's a wonderful amp. You'd be hard pressed to find a better for the price. The lead channel has a VERY distinctive voicing though, so make sure you like it before you buy it.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Thanks guys, i went ahead and bought the head. I couldn't play the actual head since it was off ebay and but ive heard tons of clips of it and i love the sound. Besides me just being a huge steve vai fan i do really like how the lead sounds. Cant wait untill i get it though.

I plan on buying one sooner or later for lead stuff.
