Marshall 1959 Super Lead Plexi
Mesa Mark V
The holy trinity as far as I'm concerned. I haven't played an actual Mark IIC+ (or C++), maybe it's better but the versatility of the V beats the IIC+ for me. The IIC+ mode in the V is still killer. The crunch mode is also ****ing brutal.
"Desert Island Amps" -- seriously, to me that would be a fantastic name for an amp company.
There's the rub - desert island - no supplies - but thank goodness we brought our guitar amps.
Kelley Line amp
So many others I’d like to include, but those would be more than enough.
Question: are we allowed a cab for our amp heads? If so I’ll take a 4x12 with some Fanes, please.
For real! That would be perfect.
I just called the island, they said a cab was fine.
They'd better be phenomenal amps with a name like that.
Fender Super Six or Quad Reverb.
When I'm sick of being trapped on the island I can pull the chassis and speakers, seal the grill cloth with paste made from coconut oil and use it for a boat.
electric power on a desert island?
Solar powered generator
Yes, just enough to have superior tone.
3 fender quad reverbs loaded with d130f's. Dont have to worry about how loud they are!
I only need one. My Friedman Small Box. Maybe three of them and dial them all in differently. Or two Friedmans and a nice old Fender for a different flavor of cleans.
C'mon y'all this is the Fantasy Island with lonely guitar player loving hot bikini babes with no emotional baggage. Of course there'll be all the sweet 117 VAC [you foreign fellers will need to git your own island], pizza, beer [plus other substances of your choice] no hangovers, alarm clocks, bosses, ex-wives, rust, gear shortages, comfy recliners [for those brief non playing moments], steaks [tofu? Dude, seriously? OTHER ISLAND!], potatoes, no weight gain, zero health issues or performance anxiety [of any sort], naturally you're the best looking you ever - have I missed anything?
Oh yeah, nightly concerts with your dream line ups [dead guys or not - all in their prime] and YOU get invited to play too.
Satellite Barracuda with 2 EVM12L 1960 Bs
2203 [Hiwatt OT] with 2 Scumback J75 LD 1960 Bs
1959 with 2 GB 1960 Bs
Passing boats will hear you and come to jam !
Thank you. Amen!!! **** yea!!!
Probably a Blackface Vintage 60’s Fender Twin Reverb, a Friedman BE-OD or Dirty Shirley, and a Victoria or Carr Tweed style like
