This is an upgraded Vox AC30CC amp in a Zilla Cabs headshell. It's got Sozo caps, Mercury Magnetics transformers and choke, and some other smaller tweaks to give the top boost channel more headroom and give it a more vintage tone, including the plate resistor mod, cathode bypass cap removal and treble cap mod which results in an amp that takes pedals really well - much better than the stock CC amps. I've also bypassed the standby switch. Comes with a Hot Covers soft cover. It's a great sounding amp and I gigged with it for 3 solid years without it giving me any trouble.

Can't really believe I'm doing this, both were bought recently (within the last 3 months) but my band broke down shortly after and I really, really want to focus on my recording so I figure the money is best ploughed back into recording gear than sat here next to me. Both are in mint condition as far as I can see, I also have a replacement logo for the cab that looks like the logo on the head. Celestion Heritage G12H's in there (as far as I'm aware, actually, will open the cab up soon to confirm). Sounds gorgeous, of course - comes with a footswitch for the Reverb/OD.
Jason Becker Hot Licks DVD. It's not so much an instructional but a recording of a performance he did and has some insight into his playing.
Michael Angelo Batio Speed Kills DVD. This is pretty good for developing your technique even if it is a bit cheesy. I found this one to be one of the best along with John Petrucci's Rock Discipline.
