    Stupendous!

    I have a 50W Master Lead stack from '79 which I bought in the early '80s and it is the amp that I did the most recording and gigs with - it's really special thing.

    By the way, since the '90s I used an attenuator (THD Hotplate) and getting the output valves breaking up with baby this is indeed the holy grail. Especially with a Strat (yes, sorry Tele nuts).

    Just had one of these come through the shop a couple weeks ago. As they all do, it sounded fantastic.

    No picture with a Tele? That's a Tele Amp- and no mistake......

    I imagine those JMPs are as difficult to find in the US, as small Blackface Fenders are in Europe?

    I actually owned this amp previously and just bought it back. Glad that I did.

    I hate buying things twice ... but sometimes it's necessary ...

    Ya did good ...

    They are great bedroom amps ...

    If your bedroom is 3000 square feet ...

    No Telecaster pictures with the JMP yet, but here is my Tele with my other Marshall’s (the Marshall Artiste is now gone).

    Actually, it’s my only amp with a Master Volume, so volume is somewhat controllable without needing an OD pedal.

    I knew all the specifics of this amp and when it was last serviced. Regretted selling it. All good.

    Snap!! My ‘79 JMP 2x12 is at my right hand now.

    I have never heard a better sounding amp,.... clean, crunch or dirty.

    i did mod the resonance cap value and put two bright cap values on a push pull... so there is not a classic rock tone it can’t give in spades at any volume.

    Def. the Holy Grail amp.
