    Pic should be hosted shortly.

    Got this baby a few weeks ago. Serial #13. This thing is the real deal folks. Extreme touch sensitivity. Like having 3 to 4 amps in one. JTM45, plexi, bassman, all at the touch of a switch or two. I just live this thing.

    More reports to follow as I get more used to this tweakers delight.

    I'm betting Paul Cochrane's new 50w Plexi type head, I think it was called the Colonial. New model, based on a Plexi but can do tweed bassman, JTM45, metal panel too. Starts with the circuit elements common to all those amps and then switches in and out the unique components of each....I *think* he even told me that it's got two separate power sections, one with 6L6 and one with EL34s!! Could be wrong about that part though....

    For a moment there I thought, "Dang, that is a BIG amp, then I realized those were childs hands!"

    That's a PURTY amplifier.

    How long did it take to get?

    Actually, about a week. I inquired about one of these from John Landgraff, and the information was not too encouraging. Two year plus. But if you consider that this amp (#13) was made in Oct 04, and he started building amps in like 2001, well, you do the math. At any rate John turned me on to this amp he knew was going to be on the market because of the owners unfortunate family events. I snatched it up, and boy am I glad I did.

    Beautiful amp! First thing I'd do is take the nameplate off because that reminds me of the guy at Hampton Beach with I love Jesus stickers all over his body spamming everyone, but that's just me.. Hope it sounds great tho! ERIC
