    I just picked up this Master Lead 30 5010 for $25 from a local Facebook FS post. I'm not usually a solid state guy but I had a Lead 12 when I was much younger and loved it.

    Great find. Congrats, those amps sound really good at bedroom volume levels also.

    Just picked up another vintage Marshall, a 1976 50 watt JMP 2100 MK2 combo. I'll try to post some pictures soon.

    Had to edit my response. I just took the amp apart today and found that the amp is a Model 2100 and not a 2187, which makes it kind of rare.

    I recently gigged my 5210 and 5275, two 1x12 solid state combos, as a mini-stack. Skip the first half, a long intro for a reunion gig. I don't do anything special, basically just rhythm, but you can hear it, fwiw!

    My new Marshall, I guess that it is kind of rare. A 1976 JMP MK2 Model 2100 combo. A special order model, a 1987 and Super Bass circuit.
    This thing is in really nice condition.

    Yes, and it overdrives pretty fast with humbuckers.

    More pictures now up in Amp Central.

    I had become unhappy with my JCM2000 and decided to get something else. I was considering either a vintage Traynor YGM3 (very close to Marshall specs so easily modded and righteous amps in their own right) or a modern Reissue of the same amp (very well done - they even had the transformers and grill cloth made by the original suppliers).

    After selling my JCM I popped into the guitar store to talk to a friend who works there about the vintage vs. reissue debate I was having with myself. As we were chatting, I mentioned that it was a bummer that a $600 Marshall Vintage Modern 2266C 50 watter we had found in the chain a few months back had been scooped by a customer at the store which had the amp. On a whim I asked him to check their used inventory and he found one at a store out west for $599! He called the store, found out it was in mint condition, and while he was still on the phone I started tossing $100 bills at him.

    So it might take a week or more to get here from out west, but I have a Marshall 2266C on its way to me.

    Is the cab underneath a Laney? They used to have those mesh wire grilles.

    Can I borrow it? I need to remove some wallpaper from a couple of rooms and that sounds like a more enjoyable way to do it than the traditional method :lol:

    It was built by guy named Harvey Gerlitz.
    He did a bunch of Custom work for Matchless back in their Hayday.
    This one was made the same year as the Head for the original owner.

    I recommend Humbuckers for that Job :)
