    Marshall 2555X's

    I have one of these heads...black tolex, and have been running it thru a cab with 20w G12M Greenbacks and it sounds amazing! Picked it up off of reverb.com for a decent price and am absolutely loving it. Marshall did a fine job on this rig.

    The Les Paul Story

    I'm guessing that someone has probably already posted this somewhere on the LPF. So please forgive me if that's the case. The thing is, I can't help but feel that it's just way too cool not to share it with y'all. :2cool I'm sure you'll dig this every bit as much as I did. There are 5...

    Does anyone here own/ordered the new Royal (Page Hiwatt)?

    I just put a deposit down on a new Royal JPP-100w and I’m very much looking forward to plugging in when it arrives. It’s being built by the same guy who built the Page Hiwatt that was posted on here some months back. The thing is…I’m just curious if anyone else has either ordered one, or...

    G12H-30w vs. 25w Greenbacks

    I'm sure this topic has been discussed time and time again, but if some of you guys wouldn't mind, I'd really like to hear your opinions regarding the tonal differences between the 30w Celestion vs. the 25w Greenback. I'm about to put a 4x12" cab together and I'm considering using either 4 30w...

    '72 Marshall Super Lead 100

    Greetings! I'm about to pull the trigger on a 1972 100 watt Super Lead. It's in pretty much mint condition, with a lay-down type transformer. The one thing that I'm curious about is that it has some of the chicklet caps, as opposed to the mustard types. Nevertheless, it's completely stock...

    Clark Beaufort, or Carr Mercury?

    I'm thinking about springing for a small amp with a single 12" speaker to try and get a decent early ZZ Top type tone. I've pretty much narrowed it down to either the Clarke Beaufort, which is Tweed Deluxe clone, or a Carr Mercury, which somewhat similar in one way or another. Have any of you...

    New 03-R9 "Aged Authentic" Burst

    Here's a few shots of a new 03-R9 I picked up the other day. I was looking for one that kind of looked old and this one seemed to fit the bill. It's an 03-R9 "Aged Authentic". Not too heavy at 8 lbs-12 ozs and the neck is extremely comfortable. Although not quite the feel of an original 59'...

    Whadayaguys think?

    Just put a deposit on a pretty much mint, more or less NOS 2000-R9 with a "flecks galore" Eastern Maple top at Mark's. I actually went up to put a deposit on another 99-R9 teaburst he had... and that one was a real beauty too! But I just liked this one better for its tone and feel, which are...

    Nut replacement, or file fret?

    Nut replacement, or file fret? HELP! I'm hoping someone can suggest something regarding this issue. I have a new R9 and am getting some string rattle/buzz on the last fret closest to the headstock. The nut may potentially need replacing, as the string is sitting quite low in the nut. Or...
