I had one of these as one of my first real amps back in high school. Heavy as fudge, I see why someone would take the head out. IMO it sounded just like a twin with more volume:NUTS I do remember getting mine to break up, no wonder my hearing is where it is. Mine had a MV on it too, I think. I think I paid 300 for the beast in the early 90's.I'd say like maybe 400ish for the head in a so so box?
