Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems top notch, I own some marshall stuff made as far back as 1963 so not a shock. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only a month old, but so far so great. General Your general opinion of this product. Outstanding. I have been looking for back-up for a rare vintage amp with tone and versatility to no avail even after many disappointing attempts with expensive designer amps. I can't believe I overlooked such a great amp. Tremendous value for money too, given what it does. I love this thing and I've only had it a month. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Quality all around, classic Marshall style deftly crafted around 21st century features. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Swiss army knife of an amp. I have 15 different guitars, les pauls, strat, SG, Ibanez S body, 59 melody maker RI, etc. and this amp has the flexibility to make any of them sound like it was made for them. Stunning versatility. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Classic Marshall beauty, looks as good as it sounds. Action How was the action out of the box? So many tones, so little time. Find 2 or 3 new things every time I fire it up. Best thing I've bought in years.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This is an English made amp. Construction is what I'd expect from an icon of Rock and Roll Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've had it almost a month and all is good. General Your general opinion of this product. This is a VERY versatile amplifier! It's LOUD but hey, that's what Marshall amps ARE! The clean tones are awesome! The crunch tones are awesome! The only part of the amp I haven't completely experimented with at the moment is the red O/D setting. It's a little over the top for my playing but it's nice to have it. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Feels like a freakin' Marshall! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Sounds like a freakin' Marshall! Of course the speaker choice has something to do with how it sounds. I'm using a 2X12 Mesa Rectifier cab with two Celestion Vintage 30's. The box has a bit more bottom end than I'm used to but I'm able to dial out some of the 'boom' with the eq. The top end is sweet! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? typical Marshall! Action How was the action out of the box? This is a goofy question for an amp...
