I remember seeing the adds in Guitar Player magazine back when they first started reissuing them....and I didn't know squat about much of anything except they looked cool as fudge, and I wanted one. I think I was playing a peavey renown at the time. Time went by, and I just never ended up getting one. Owned all sorts of Fenders, had a Marshall dsl 50 for a short period of time, and now days I have a couple of Dr Z's that I really like. Any way, about a week ago I got a really good deal on a used 1960tv cabinet. Ended up selling one of my DrZ's and saw this JTM on Reverb for what seemed like a really good price compared to a new one, so I jumped on it. Between the amp and cab I have 1650$ bucks invested. I was a little apprehensive about how it might be contructed, I knew it was pcb, but could not find any current pictures of the guts of a newer one compared to some of the first reissues. Well, I was pleased to see that the pots and tube sockets were all chassi mounted with flying leads. Appparently mine was wired by Anita and Julie...ohhh la la. I've found a site that speaciallizes in good simple mods, to help improve upon the reissues, so I may give that a shot later down the road, but otherwize...I think it sounds pretty darn good. and I still think they look cool as fudge!!!!!!
