    ‘78 Marshall 2203 Photo Dump

    50th anniversary of the 2203 is coming up. Wish Marshall would re-release the JMP type 2203/04 for the anniversary, or just because they look better lol.

    Guitars: Best value for money

    I think mine was an '89. Played it for about 3 years I think. Great quality and engineering but the super thin neck did weird shit to my wrist/hand. Might have been my technique was/is bad, I dunno but it really messed with my hand. Going to thicker neck guitars resolved it though. If Ibanez...

    Plexi volume boost for leads?

    I should also ask are you the only guitar player or more than one? Reason I ask is whenever Ive been in bands with other guitarists I always tried to carve out a different sonic place than the other player. Like if they were playing strat type guitars Id use a les paul and vice verse. Also helps...

    Plexi volume boost for leads?

    Maybe try cutting for rhythm instead of boosting for leads. Like get everything where you want it for leads and then use the EQ to cut back the volume for rhythm.

    Is anybody actually buying speaker cabs new?

    I bought my 1960BV like 20 years ago new. Never felt the need to own another. Most of the time I gig 1x12s or combos anyways. Been actually thinking about picking up a 2x12 but if I do Avatar is only a 30 minute drive from here and I will get what I want.

    New Amp day.

    grats man, sure youll love it. Make sure you keep an eye on the bias they are known to have issues sometimes. There are threads around this forum about it.

    Which Marshall Signature Amp would you choose?

    Ive never gotten to play any of them so honestly I couldnt say. Im sure I wouldnt mind the 2203 types if not for the horrible graphics. Maybe the Hendrix/RR/YJM. I dunno. AFD sounds appealing lol.

    Megadeth, Megadeth, Aguante Megadeth!

    Got to see megadeth a couple times, so great. One of my favorite chants was at a Metallica show. We went to the last show of their stint at Irvine and it was fun as hell. I think it was the last night of the last stop on the AJFA tour. Not sure which night this was from but its from the same venue.

    PSA: if you are selling a Les Paul

    I had a White Les Paul Custom, like around an '08 I think. Weighed 12 pounds. We called it El Doce lol. Played one four hour gig with it and sold it to fund a '98 R7 Custom at around 9 pounds. I didnt think it would be a big deal but when you have your own gear, the PA to contend with and all...

    Thoughts on the Marshall JCM2000 DSL401?

    I really liked mine. Was my main grab and go for a couple years back around '08ish. Traded it to a friend who needed an amp and it broke down soon after. I actually never knew they were known for it.

    What will you do when TSHTF?

    The fam are working on developing means of being more self sufficient. Have chickens that lay a surplus so we sell those eggs to offset the feed costs. Chickens are also devastating to bugs. Unfortunately in letting them range it seems their fave hang spot is the back porch where they like to...
