So always been more of a Gilmour type tone guy, clean amp with pedals for dirt. My amps seem to be more of the Fender BF or Tweed type. Right now I have a 67 Deluxe Reverb and a Swart SST 30 head. But I have always wanted a Marshall for that good old fashion rock n roll tone straight through the amp. So I have been looking at the JTM 1987 early models and have had people say the pre 73 ones should be had for under 2,000 yet everywhere I look it is much higher. Then I am considering the 1987X and via Reverb have found some more in the 1,500-1,900 range. Just having that analysis paralysis in regards to which way I should go if you know what I mean. Even considered the 1959 as well or boutique as well. I know this is a LOUD amp but I would use a UA OX with it. I have been wanting to maybe occasionally move from my Helix to a real amp on stage when I play on Sunday in the PW band. I love to bring out a little more harder edge tone sometimes from the typical PW tone you usually hear just to keep it fresh. I do have a great amp tech guy here in Austin so I am not scared to get the older vintage ones but really don't want to pay the high high prices if a reissue is not much different.
