    its not bad, when I finally get it installed I can send pics. It’s not that the new one is thick, more so the OEM is thin.

    Installed. Cake to do so. Looks way better. I’ll post a pic of the original, the OEM replacement and my new Plexi side by side as well.

    Looks good. I was thinking about this, and I assume that Marshall used the clear over gold panels in an attempt to recreate to look of the original plexiglass panels. Since the SV20 is supposedly modeled after a 1959, I'll probably leave mine as-is, as the front panel matches my larger 1959 and other 4 holers.

    So why wouldn’t Marshall just make the panels the exact same way as they did back then? I mean, they went as far as recreating the sound and asthmatics, why not just go all of the way? Wasn’t it real plexiglass that was painted gold?

    This is interesting. The attached picture is the original, the OEM replacement and the new plexi panel. Top is plexi, middle is replacement OEM and bottom is original. Also attached is a plexi panel on a real one. Looks closest to the new plexi panel.

    Well you could commit the 'unpardonable sin' by putting the Marshall face plate on a Ceriatone amp! :funny:

    I saw few people mentioning High Treble channel hiss.
    How audible (loud) is hiss produced by your SV20? I have measured it and I didn't like numbers.. With 10" (95dB) speaker and everything on 5 except Normal on 0 it is cca 60dB. All on 10, Normal on 0 is almost 70dB. Do I have a broken one?

    Is the Bright Cap located on the Volume pot or somewhere on the board. I ask because it might not hurt to change it to a lower value.

    If you have the amp dimed there’s some noise for sure, you’re basically redlining the amp so it’s expected. I find with a humbucker, back volumes to 8 and presence to 8 and it drops the noise substantially but still has that edge of blowing up awesome tone.

    It is almost the same level of noise form 2 to 10 on High treble. What cuts it down is if I rollback Presence and Treble. But then it is unusable dark.

    I’m also getting High Treble hiss with it on 4 and/or jumpered with normal on 2. It is exacerbated when my Tumnus is on. I’m also getting a lot of feedback.

    On newer Marshall's, the bright caps are PCB mounted (unless it's a HW amp).

    Simple question. What color is the metallic paint on the “Marshall” logo on the Studio Vintage amps and cabs? Silver or gold? No local stores have and it’s hard to tell from photos. Thanks.
