    This is a complete rig, with the Soultone 45ME3 head with all bells and whistles along with a matching Soultone vintage slant '68 cabinet with English made Heritage Celestion G12 speakers.

    The last Soultone head I have. I have one combo 18 watt I will be selling too.

    I was keeping this 1/2 stack for myself but in all truth I just don't play it (I don't play since my surgeries), it's big, sits in our bedroom, and is going to waste. Too bad is it's one of the very best I ever built.

    It's an early one of the 45ME3 models, with the custom wound Mercury Magnetics transformers, large HEXFET power scaling solution, and the hybrid handwired board with a PCB on the end of it for the power scaling. It's built like a tank, and covers the full spectrum of great british amps from plexi to early metal face, without the noise, hum, and reliability issues.

    $3000 O.B.O plus shipping.

    It will ship with double boxing, separate boxes, and carefully packed with full insurance. Shipping costs at buyer's preference.

    I can take paypal, but I'd really like a cashier's check or postal money orders for this exquisite amp, as my business is long closed and this was a personal keeper; as such I'll discount the amp 3% for the check, mo, or cash.

    45ME3 head Features:
    • Handwired Turret board with integrated power scaling PCB
    • Sozo, Mullard, MEB, Allen Bradley and more mix of components for the best possible sound.
    • Any octal tube type (currently tubed with valve arts KT66)
    • Tube or Solid State rectifier!
    • Individual bias controls on back panel (easy to check with volt meter)
    • Plexi Mode (splits the cathode and changes cathode RC values)
    • Cascade mode (stacks the triodes making it a JCM800 level gain stack)
    • Tube FX loop, with true bypass, with send and recieve level controls
    • Power Scaling from 36 watts down to 1 watt
    • hi/lo feedback loop selector switch
    • Universal Voltage for all countries (see the manual)
    • Impedance selector
    • Fat boost on front panel
    • Laser engraved acrylic panels, back and front
    • PEC milspec pots
    • All silver core MILSPEC wire throughout
    • Soldered entirely with silver solder by a NASA Certified Soldering Technician (US Army 26V10 signal school grad)
    412 '68 Vintage Slant cabinet:
    • Void free baltic birch construction
    • Marshall Levant covering
    • Vintage wheat style grill
    • Celestion Heritage G12M made in England speakers
    • Wired with Monster cable and silver solder
    • Casters
    • Solid Cables custom made speaker cable is included
    In all honesty this amplifier is so overbuilt with such premium components that the day of reckoning came and I shut down my business; I didn't make a penny on them, as the cost of parts alone was astronomical. After multiple surgeries two my right arm and shoulder, I simply can't play much at all, and the money is going to help pay bills.

    REDUCING PRICE 2nd time now - down to $3000.

    This is stupid cheap.

    If you play guitar, and you're looking for 60's, 70's, and early 80's Marshall tones, snag this amp. It's cream of the crop, built like a tank, and there simply aren't any more of them.
