    Marshall C5H

    Picked up this never played-new in a box 2012 Marshall Class 5H last week. I owned a Class 5C combo that I purchased new in 2012, but sold it a few years ago. Anyway, I was running the C5H through a 1x12 with a Greenback until I tried it through my Mesa’s EV12. I think that the EV12 sounded...

    New old guitar day

    Every time that I buy an acoustic guitar, it remains in its case, until I return it, sell it, or give it away.

    Mashall in a box pedal?

    I owned a Wampler Plexi Drive and a Catlinbread Dirty Little Secret. I preferred the DLS over the Plexi Drive. Kept the DLS much longer. I’m now using a J-Rockett Dude for more drive with my Marshall, Fender, and Mesa amps.

    Would you rather have a $2k guitar with a $500 amp or a $500 guitar with a $2k amp?……and Why?

    I’ve got to be different. With $2500, I could buy nice used $1000 guitar and a $1500 amp. Same money, just distributed differently. For 2500, I would buy a nice used American Standard Stratocaster or a nice used Gibson Les Paul Studio ($1000) and a Silverface Fender amp ($1500).
