    Quote from "The History of Marshall" by Michael Doyle

    "[...] Naturally there are many modern Marshalls that can come close to approximating the Bluesbreaker sound but the most surprising one is the old 5005 (Lead 12) solid-state combo so beloved by Billy F Gibbons. He recorded such guitar greats as "My Head's in Mississippi" with this amp, and I am eternally in his debt for bringing it to my attention!."

    I have one of the newer models (2 outputs in the front panel) but lot of people says the early models (1 outout) sound much better.

    Have you tried them?

    Yesterday I bought one of the early ones for a ridiculous price (40$) that should arrive here very soon. I will A/B them keeping you posted.

    Wow,

    Where did you find that amp for that price?! I looked one up right after I read post and saw one on eBay for basically $160.00.

    Good find bro.

    on e-bay.

    The best part of the hunting is not in the catch.

    I just sold a reverb 12, It was on of the best ones I've had. Ebay, went for 69.00. Out of 4 or 5 I've had it was a good one.
