    Sounds good... what does the mod consist of? Any holes drilled on the chassis?

    All my mods are reversible and no holes are drill in the chassis.
    I don't like destroying these old beautiful Marshall's.
    I'd rather see them being preserved. :)

    This one seems to have really great clarity.Here's what I like,there is sustain without being cluttered or having overwhelming gain.It still lets you hear all the notes .Great sounding mids.I like this one big time.

    Sounds REALLY great! Does this mod introduce a master volume?

    Off topic: what kinda guitar is this? MM Luke or JP body shape, headstock 4+2 MM style, but no decals...?

    Sounds great RT! That is tough riff to nail (Take Your Whiskey), to get the swing of it I mean and you got it.

    New guitar?

    Thank you!
    It also felt very comfortable to play with this sound, lots of attack on tap as well.
    Leads felt effortless which isn't always the case with a pure tube amp.

    Thank you for the kind words.
    Yes, this amp has a MV that I designed for these old Marshalls. I removed one of the output jacks and placed the MV there.
    You're kinda close.
    It's an old beat-up OLP Petrucci signature guitar.
    She catch on fire once but I managed to save it and it play & sounds great.
    If you can believe, it's much better then it was before. [​IMG]

    Thank you Derek! :cheers:
    I was a little shaky with that (Take Your Whiskey) riff.
    You're right, the swing feel is very hard to nail down.
    The guitar is an old beat-up OLP Petrucci signature guitar.

    If you can believe, it's much better then it was before. :agreed:

    I agree 2203Xman. The clarity. It sounds fantastic. What I like is that there is this organic, raw nature to it. It has character. It's as if both the guitar AND amp become instruments in their own right and that it is not too refined. Refined is fine if that is what's called for but I prefer this type of tone. It retains the core Marshall character but with a kick. This is why I keep coming back to Marshalls after trying other amps. They're not "perfect" and that's what I like about them. Awesome work you do Michael.

    Sounds really good! I like all the clips that I've heard from your mods. I have seen a gut shot or 2 of your amp mods and have a simple question that I want to pm you, but that option is not available and I don't want to post publicly out of respect

    Just goes to show you the “ tone is in the fingers “ mantra is a load of crap. No special guitar, no northern ash,no maple neck or special wound pickups. Etc etc. still gets evh tone. 90% is the amp people , I’m convinced of it.

    Killer tone and chops Bud. Gotta love a mod that doesn't include hacking a classic apart. Well done.:dude:

    Thank you so much for the kind words my friend.
    That is exactly what I was trying to accomplish.
    Keeping the pure organic raw Marshall Plexi tone but with more gain and sustain.
