Its interesting, over the last year or so ive been in the market for several different Marshalls including the 2203x Reissue, the 1987x 50 watt and the 1959 SLP and whenever I would do a search to hear a Strat through one these amps the majority of all the videos I would find are players using Les Paul or Gibsons of some kind. I have both but i mainly play Strats now. I realize the Gibson Marshall tone is the iconic sound of rock but I always loved the Marshall Stratocaster tone! The Blackmore, Hendrix, Trower sound is just killer! Anyway just an observation.
