    Do we have any famous members on the forum, or just guitar/amp-laden heirs to their wealthy ranch tycoon parents’ throne?

    Ken Underwood is one of the original 3 engineers who created the first Marshall amplifier.
    He is here in the forum, and we are not worthy.
    Anytime I disagree with him, I feel deeply guilty.

    He is one of several celebrities who belong to the forum.
    (I also know Ace Frehley who is here with us quite often)

    Also my nana and granda ran a greasy spoon called The Paddock Cafe in the 1970's opposite the CA Parsons factory in Walker in the East end of Newcastle where Brian Johnson worked as a turbine fitter and he got his tabs (cigarettes) and bacon sarnies from.
    Sorry, I am clutching at straws now.

    Where is that serial number 0001 now? They have had a few blank cheque offers from wealthy individuals. My understanding is that the chassis was never put in a cabinet. Maybe it is like in some sort of alarmed glass case in a big room on it's own awaiting for some guy in black clothing to be lowered through the roof on a wire like Mission Impossible ?

    Where is that serial number 0001 now?

    It's sitting on somebody's fireplace mantle. (I can't say who's)
    The transformers sunk down into the aluminum from the weight, and there's no way it can be played anymore.
    But don't worry it's well cared for. Sorry can't disclose any more info but at least now you know.
