    Kinda weird,
    I never thought Randy had that interesting and unique of a tone. Always liked his playing, but I thought he could've improved his sound a lot.

    Maybe the distortion pedal is built right into the amp.

    Looks like a typical 4 hole marshall wrapped in a white box, so I kind of doubt Marshall reinvented the wheel on us.

    I was the HUGEST of Randy Rhoads fans as a teenager but even back then (before "tone" was a word) I didnt care for his sound .. I remember saying I liked his playing better than EVH but liked EVH's sound better.. I'd love to hear one of these for kicks..

    Randy also loaded his cabinets with Altec 417-8H speakers and used an MXR Distortion+. Big components to his sound.

    Limited edition? I thought it was going to be production like the 1959hw? Anyway, I hope the price is half decent considering the dollars value at the moment. The video sounded very good to me, plenty mids and just the right amount of gain.

    Looks like I'll be taking the orange JMP combo off the white 4x12 (in the corner) and placing something new on top.:drool

    And of course, to get that tone, the volume needs to be on 7, which means few people will be able to gig with it.

    This is for collectors only.

    ...because attenuators don't work with this model and they're not allowed in large venues.:dude

    Gotta love us collectors!
