Sunburst amp... Wow... Tobacco or cherry?

I demoed this amp and his 1958 model for Richard last weekend at the Nashville gear expo. Truly a Great sounding amp and I like that he has added a full eq section now on the mk4. This amp is so touch sensitive, you could easily play a gig without a gain pedal. Just use your volume knob, turn down for clean, turn up for gain. Also the tremolo has been modded a bit to go slower then the mk3. In all my many years of amp buying and playing, his amps are by far the most touch sensitive and easy to play.

Agree! I've got another Goodsell on order. Can't get enough.

Very nice work, the Marshall Grille Cloth looks killer on these amps.


Is Richard covering old original tweed amps like the original finish. I like Greg Hopkins but he takes so long to get your amp cab back.
I have a stripped tweed cab all sanded and I applied sanding sealer and sanded it smooth, ready for tweed. The sanding sealer makes it easy to get a good bond and remove the tweed in the future. I believe Fender used a sanding sealer on the original amps, it has that red hue tint to it.
You may have seen it if you ever stripped a tweed cab before.


I'm thinking about changing my oxblood cloth to the marshall cain cloth like in the amp above, what you think?
I think the lighter color cloth will be better with the maple, and it's pretty much indestructible.

I like the contrast you get with the oxblood grill. It makes the maple really stand out. The sunburst tweed doesn't do much for me, but that's just my opinion.

He had two sunburst models - the one pictured above, and one that is more of a darker red in color. Form AND function.

... and that 1958 is now mine! Now if I could only play as well as you and most of the other guys that were there. Whoa.
Congrats on the 1958. I really liked that amp. So cool to be able to change between the el34s and 6v6s. I couldn't decide what I liked better. Loved the turquoise tolex too. Was very impressed with your Rocco guitar.
