I'd highly reccomend sending it in to Klaus Heyne before you commit to buying it, just so that he can check it over. I've seen hundreds of those pieces of metal, and they never sound alike. You want to make sure that you're getting a good one. In the rush for vintage gear that started in the 90's, most of these metal pieces ended up in the hands of unqualified techs that butchered the things in an attempt at refurbishment. The years of smoke an grime that accumulate on the rack ears also degrade the sound. But if you get a good one, the original metal racks have that magic sound that the reissuses just aren't capable of.
