    *That* is why my '66 JTM-100 will go to the grave with me. Accept no substitutes.

    '...it's more of a lifestyle choice than an amplifier...'
    Truer words were never spoken!

    Listen to most rock records recorded in the early '70s. Or take your own advice and go play through one before you die. ;)

    Well on the price I'll give you the short story.

    I bought an amp I liked it died on me there was no repairing. They gave me another and it started giving trouble. I had a good chunk of change in it and my time period for getting my money back was well since gone over a few months with both amps.

    They gave me an in store credit and I got the Marshall Handwired then a week later got the Cab.

    I originaly traded a beat up American Tele in on the first amp and got more for it than I had in it.

    So after all the dust had cleared I think I have a grand total of

    $3499.00 in it give or take a dollar or two. I paid $1080.00 outright for the Cab. So that leaves $2419.00 for the head of which I'm gonna delete this reply shortly as to not ruffle feather.

    I believe the Head was originally marked at $2699.00 before Taxes and the Cab was maybe $1700.00 but I'm not sure about that on the cab because my memory aint cooperating right now.

    Thanks, Red Planet. The price I have been quoted was VERY close to your number.

    Clips? I dont know how to do Clips yet. Though I've been around a while (I'm an old fart gear freak). :D

    I can do digital recordings now so its just a matter of figuring out how to do hosting of em?

    You cant beat these amps with a stick. They is be good.

    :dude


    Though mine has the Parkhead Mod. Which gives it that screaming squawl at lower volumes. You cant beat these with a stick. Is there an Echo in here?:NUTS :NUTS :NUTS
