I'm very interested in a mint second hand reissue 1987x for sale at a local shop. Looks to be at the most a couple of years old, the price is £600 - new they never sell for under a grand. If I could get them down to £500 or close it'd be a great deal. Anyway...does anyone own one of these amps? How do you like it? Threads on these on TGP are patchy... I hear that a lot of people clip out the bright cap on the high treble channel and replace it with something else which gives the volume a better taper and gives the amp more headroom. My band's sound is somewhere between Fugazi, King Crimson, old Floyd, Jawbox, Drive Like Jehu, mewithoutyou etc. A mix of prog-rock and post hardcore I guess. I like raw tones, not too much overdrive but I could push it further with the Timmy and fuzzes if need be. Guitars used will be a Tokai LP Custom with BK Mules and a Gibson LP Special with Lollar P90s. Tell me how you like this amp and what you've done with it mods wise. I think maybe a PPIMV might be a nice mod somewhere down the line.
