    Yeah, I'd absolutely agree it's a good way to get started for the price. I just hate to see Marshall go so far downstream man... just my op.

    I did this mock-up. If I got the CODE, I was thinking about getting a case made...

    something like that.

    You could use any speaker cab, just probably be best w/ speakers like the FR/LR (if they ever release them)...

    or... my thought was to decouple the power amp & put it in a box, & use it like a module. Sort of like the Stockwell...

    it would literally double the price of the CODE 100h, but, it would, IMO, be worth it, at $500 total...

    When I was 13 with my Antoria LP and I can't even remember what amp they had a full Marshall Stack in the window of the local music shop. I used to stand outside and dribble but I couldn't even dream of owning it - darned thing cost more than a new (cheap) car. If you'd told me I could have the code for whatever $250 was in the early seventies I would have been on it like Oprah on a baked ham. Kids today don't know they're born.

    Just remembered my first amp was a selmer treble and bass 50 combo. Didn't think much of it at the time but they're big bucks now.

    "...why-would-anyone-buy-this-amp...?"

    John Mayer and Mark Knopfler did buy this amp, among others.
    I suspect they use it in place of an effects loop.
    I can see that there is many advantages compared to the usual noisy effects pedals.

    Firebird w/ the cheese wheel control panel: I'm not so sure about the advantage of that.
    Doesn't that guitar have it's own external power supply, special cable?
    Looks like another one of those Gibsons from the goofy guitars era...

    I can stand that aesthetic better than the looks of the PRS MT15 and EVH lunchbox and other kitchen appliance looking amps.

    I can see why one would care what their guitar looks like but why would you care what your amp looks like?

    Apparently, Marshall made the mistake of not consulting you, prior to the release of such an inferior item.
