    Looks beautiful, sounds beastly! I didn't have time to do much beyond seeing that it works before I had to go on a work trip yesterday, but man oh man does it have a great crunch. Really looking forward to spending some more time with it later in the week.

    Congrats! Killer amps.
    From the pic I'm assuming an older one with updated logo?

    Thanks! And yeah, that's spot on, the previous owner switched out the logo and the knobs.

    One of my favorite amps ever. Just a fun little beast to rock out with.

    You've gotten yourself a great amp. I sold mine to get a Club 40, and I'm very happy with it, but still now and then I miss the Masonette.

    Got a Classic 45 and a Lead 35. Greg Germino builds awesome amps - they all sound great!

    Happy NAD!

    Thanks guys, you´re not making the wait to crank it up any easier :D Lucky I´m back home tomorrow!

    I wasn´t really looking for another NMV Marshall-type, but the ad for this one kept catching my eye and I´m glad it eventually reeled me in.

    I spent a few hours with it today and jeez, this is straight up a great amp. It has just the right tone you'd expect from a great example of a Marshall, awesome touch and plenty of plexi drive without falling apart even when cranked (as long as you watch the bass knob). A+ for Germino at this point in the honeymoon.

    Loved mine and miss it’s great tone. One of those pieces that I’d have been better off keeping.
