Haha, yeah, I did have a lot of guitars for a while - you've actually seen this room before, and slept in it, when it had a bed.

Thought it was that room, wish I could have that musicmaster bass amp. Although the line 6 spider amp I have covers many bases...just looks ugly as fuck!

1974x is the 1x12 version of mine I think. I use it with an attenuator at the moment, but I will hopefully be gigging with it. The Marshall Class 5 is a great amp - is yours the version with the low power switch?


Yeah, sure that's the one I was looking at. 18w / 1x12. Lovely amps but LOUD (for me, anyway). I only do home playing/recording these days so don't need anything loud enough to gig with.

I've got one of later Class 5s with the lower power mode. Looks like they've just reissued them but not with the "vintage" style aesthetics.

What's the Offset like?

It's great - it's meant to sound like the early KT66 tubed Marshalls, but with a bit more gain, and it does that pretty well. Takes pedals well too, which I wasn't necessarily expecting.

Ben - The Les Paul Deluxe sounds like a Tele (really, it does) is that close enough. Laughing


It is absolutely stunning tbf. Gold top with p90's is ALWAYS a winner

But yeah, Slashtonez. I've got the JCM800 on order...


Kept that one quiet Wink
Love the collection you amassed. I have played most of these on one of nicks trips to casa prog. The class 5 is amazing, everything you'd want an iconic les Paul to be. The deluxe is a so telecaster like it's scary. It prompted me to snag a deluxe recently. The offset is fucking loud. Think we dimed it at mine and nearly caused the apocalypse!!! Kinda both done the same Kinda thing, just different brands Wink
