    it was probably just a passion project. I doubt he's looking to make many of them.
    That being said, the type of customer that would want a $10,000 amp would probably look to originals.

    I wonder how much a real Hendrix amp would sell for. Probably $100,000 on a slow day

    If those amps had Strats leaning on them I might consider it. ;)

    The SG just doesn't do it.

    I had a Major. They have four tubes in ultra linear. That's how the last Super Reverbs (crappy CBS ones) got 70 watts from two 6L6's. Mine had GE 6550's as most KT88's were extinct then.

    My first marshall. It had the Blackmore mod and GE 6550's. In the early 80's there were only N.O.S. KT 88's and I will never cough up money for those. It was a wonderful sounding amp.

    The company badges are pretty ridiculous.....
    at least leave them off and drill the correct holes for replacement logo's, therefore no trademark infringement...

    Eh... Kinda cool with the current trend of replica and tribute stuff but for the money seems a little inaccurate.

    I take it one is supposed to be his KT66 and the other one a stateside 6550s... But one glaring inaccuracy is that that both seem to have a tube rectifier! Jimi started with the JTM45/100s which was SS rect... werent the JMPs solid state rectified also?

    If I am correct on what I see then that is a glaring mistake on something that is supposed to be a replica AND for that money...

    Photos aren't the best, but I think you're looking at the topside filter cap.
