    Yeah, it kind of reminds me of Jack Nicholson, "You can't handle the truth"...:)

    I don't feel the need to show a long annoying sig.

    No need to! This says it all:
    Playing a Strat through my Marshall Studio Vintage makes me high.

    I don't have the SV20, or I'd be doing some A/B comparisons to my 4 holer's. I'm assuming you still own those amps (else comparing photos to a "signature" would be pointless), so how about doing an A/B comparison of the SV20 to one of those 4 holer's. I'm sure there are others, besides myself, who would like to hear the results. Also, you can turn "show signatures" Off in your settings.

    This thread is getting crazy. The last few pages is nothing but arguing about personal opinion, comparing different amps, and by some people that dont even own one yet. Sound like trolls just out to s#!t can these amps for alternative gain. Who the hell would admit they bought a new amp and pulled it apart within days?

    These are pretty tempting mod platforms. I'm pretty sure Marshall sold plenty of the full-size reissues to people who would just mod them, and the much lower price tag of these means it's easier to justify modding.

    It looks easy enough to convert the Vintage's lead spec circuit to bass, or to do the Randy Rhoads / One Wire Mod. I would do one of those to mine, but the lead spec circuit is already everything I want. I would buy a second one of these, but a PRS or superstrat is higher on my GAS list for the time being.

    All component values are the same as Marshall so not a modification from that respect. Component type is not.

    1. The two black/square 510pf Rel caps you see are film/tin foil vs Marshall ceramic.
    2. The two long black .022uf caps are also film/tin foil, NOS no longer manufactured vs Marshall metalized film.
    3. The two Sozo caps are NOS from years ago. Film/Aluminum foil vs Marshall metalized film. I would have preferred to replace with a Rel cap but didn't have that value on hand.
    4. The rest resistors are PRP 1 watt made for audio.

    Seems like some should be posting about their mods on the Studio Classic Forum?

    Film/tin foil vs film/aluminum foil vs metalized film vs film/copper we can discuss offline via PM.

    No offence intended & offer appreciated but I'll just stick with pickup & speaker selections @ this stage. No doubt in the future there will be other significant mods discovered for SV20H that I may or may not be interested in.

    UPDATE: I'm returning the SV head and 1x12 cab to buy the SV combo.
    By adjusting tone controls I can dial in the 10" speaker for great tone that's warmer than the 12" speaker. Its not lacking in volume.
    I'd rather have the combo for jam nights. I can always buy an extension cab.
