John LANDGRAFF CUSTOM 50 HEAD--originally handbuilt for Roger Lund 2/25/2004 by John Landgraff in Pensacola, Florida, USA. This one is #14 of probably fewer than 30 John has ever built, and it's amazing! I've talked with John a number of times about amps and circumstances....and it is unfortunately unlikely he'll be building many more of these amps any time soon if ever, by the way. This amp is a great, great instrument that surpasss most anything like it I've ever heard--not to mention that it's beautiful in it's Red Oak cabinet built by Bob Burt. With all the variations available, I've found every configuration sounds great and is very usable, unlike other amps that promise tube substitutions and other features. See John's handwritten instructions in the photos below for some of the features if I forget some here. It can take almost any octal tube, though I use it with EL34's. It will ship with a BONUS pair of Sylvania-branded NOS MULLARD EL34's, three Mullard pre-amp tubes, an EH phase-inverter, and a MULLARD GZ34 rectifier tube.....but, it will contain the tubes John apparently used originally: a Siemens EL34 and a MULLARD EL34 along with a JJ ECC83, two NOS Philips 12AX7's and an EH phase inverter tube--had planned to change them for the NOS Mullards but they just sounded too good to change. Any of the 12A_7-type preamp tubes can be substituted as well. Switchable from tube to solid state rectification. Coupler switches for preamp tubes on each channel. Half-power/Pentode-Triode switch. Sweet (59 Bassman) and Tunder (More Aggressive Marshally) switch. Pull on bass knob for "Plexi Mod." Pull on each volume knob for expanding band width. 3-way bright switch for the normal channel. Whew! Other features, too, so consult John's note if interested. Also, you'll get a custom-made wooden flight case built by Vintone and a padded clamshell cover by Studio Slips (see photos). There is no question that this amplifier will appreciate big-time in value over a few years or even months, and I would let it do so if I felt I could. But, I'm offering this magnificent piece--with the custom flight case, the extra set of Mullard NOS tubes, and the Studio Slips padded clamshell case--here for $6,500 shipped CONUS.. . Buyer will pick up the PayPal fees unless he or she is willing to use PayPal "gift" or pay with a Bank/Cashier's Check/M.O. (I have well over 1200 unique transactions on Ebay with 100% positive feedback for trust.). I've decided that I just can't part with this amp unless someone is willing to pay at least close to what I feel it's worth. The padded cover, the custom flight case, the extra Mullard NOS tubes, the shipping are basically FREE at this price. Thanks for looking. Questions, requests, etc to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or PM. From bubbagump_j, an owner of one of the others, below: "I own one, (flamed maple cab). Truly one of those...holy grail...once in a lifetime.. epic guitar amplifiers, that you would be inclined to hold on to, once it's in your possession. A very hard find. Surprising to see one available. Even more surprised to see it last this long. To me, it really has its own signature sound going on. But, the best description, is a Marshall on steroids crossed with a hi-fi organic tones of an Alessandro. With a lot of range, or a big "sweet spot" sort of speak, (when dialing it in). Good luck with the sale of your heirloom amplifier."
