• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

How I spent the last two hours.....

Great pics Greg. More if you have them.

How do you like those new Marshalls?

Two hours is about 1 3/4 hours more than I usually spend playing at the shop after work. I 've had the guitar or years, so I guess I LOVE the Vintage Modern 50.

They are a great amp Greg - got one and won't be parting with it.
BTW do you recollect your settings - just noticing that you didn't have it on max overdrive where it goes to 11.............
How loud did you have it on the clean channel?

All the way. Master dimed, preamps up 90%. That slab of mahogany just TWISTS in your hands when you do that.

Nice to hear someone praise the old and new in the same breath. Usually, its one or the other. That guitar is fantastic.

Very nice & thanks for sharing! That TV Model looks like it might have a black pickguard. Or is it just the angle of the photo?

They are amazing amps. I got the 100w - If I dimed that I'd probably blow my own head off then my house would fall down on top of me! Seriously considering the 50w :hmm

More bragging pics.....

As to wattage, I prefer 50 watters because they sound richer to me when wrung out. You have to REALLY hit a 100 watt head to get that, and then you might as well give up on the P.A.

Great pics, and thank you! I've always been a 50 Watt 1/2 stack man myself, and have been wondering powerfully about those Vintage Modern models (some even in Purple, too!)...

Guess I'll have to have a good listen!

Gotta love the purple Greg - doesn't show up in every light but when it does people notice it and then the oohs and aahs start.........
Did a recent show where the road crew setup a white light on the floor for solos and boy could you see the purple.
Very groovy:2zone
