BLACKSTAR ARTISAN 30 HANDWIRED BOUTIQUE HEAD AND CAB, ULTIMATE VALVE TONE

THE ULTIMATE TONE MACHINE, BLACKSTAR ARTISAN 30 HEAD AND MATCHING 2X12 CAB. VIRTUALLY AS NEW, STILL WITH TAG ATTACHED TO HEAD!
This was provided to me as part of my endorsement with Blackstar, for a UK arena tour with Girls Aloud (the biggest pop act in the world at the time). It has poured awesome tone all over the UK's biggest arenas (The O2 etc) and was the amp of choice for the tour after an extensive shoot-out with my guitar tech and front of house engineer.
More recently I used this for a Radio 1 Live Lounge session, at which the in-house engineer would not stop singing it's praises. My role has changed since these sessions, and it's been sat in my home studio with the matching covers on ever since (also included in the sale). I've just bought a new house, so sadly it has to go (to be replaced when finances allow, hopefully by another Artisan 30 that sounds as good as this one!)
Prior to this amp, I had a 'Divided By13 FTR37' stack in my own custom colours (again from an endorsement) as my main touring amp, costing many times the price of the Blackstar. But the Blackstar simply sounded better, so the Divided By 13 is long gone.
Any questions will be answered promptly, and I am supremely confident the winning bidder will be very happy.
Due to the size and weight, this beauty is for collection only
