This amp is cathode biased so there is no need for bias adjustment when changing tube styles. head comes stock with an effects loop. Footswitchable dedicated clean and overdrive channels, overdrive channel has also has a footswitchable Gain Boost. XLR connection footswith w/ LED included. Lots of tones available in this head and at very usuable volumes.

  Gibson 2008 Custom Shop Murphy Aged Johnny Winter Firebird Reissue
(Item#820)(consignment) Tom Murphy aged Johhny Winter Firebird #007, this was the guitar displayed at the Gibson Summer Jam. And there is some speculation that Johnny may have played it in this quote from an LPF Forum member who was there and took some pictures of the guitar: "I know that when Johnny played Highway 61 Fri. night Henry and Slash presented him one to play and I do believe it could have been the # 007 they had on display as when I checked it out Sat. it looked to have dried sweat on it." There is no proof of this but it's interesting! Guitar weighs 7 lbs 15 ounces, nice feeling neck that measures: 1st fret - .854", 12th fret - 1.006", very minimal playing time on guitar, comes with all paperwork, special signed certificate and black Gibson Custom signature case.

(Item#816) From my personal collection, all original and super clean 1971 Marshall 100w Superlead full stack including covers!! I imported this stack from Austria about 10 years ago, it was bought new as a full stack so it was not pieced together, you can tell it has always been together easily by the way the grill cloth on the cabs has faded exactly the same, both basketweave cabs have pre-Rola Celestion 25w greenbacks with "003" cones. Metal panel Superlead head that still has the original Mullard tubes!! Logo on slant cab has one break but can easily be glued back together as there is no piece missing(see close-up picture). This stack is about as close as you can come to museum quality. Serious buyers please call for more info and pictures. (Buyer to pay actual shipping cost plus $100.00 packing fee)

  Germino Amplification 2015 Lead 55LV 50w Head
(Item#808)(new) MGL is proud to announce becoming an authorized Germino Amp dealer and this is our first offering of many to come! Lead 55LV head covered in British Racing Green tolex, the color is a combo of black and green with a very rich look, this amp has both upgrades that are available, post phase inverter master volume and tube/solid state rectifier switch(allows you to switch between tube or solid state rectifier on the fly). Here is some of the text from the Germino site for this model: The  Lead 55LV  model uses a dual EL-34 output section and "lead" circuit values. This is the Lead circuit used in original 68-69 JMP-50 1987 models. Great crunch and upper midrange are there to cut through the mix in a sweet way that only a plexi can. Single notes are warm with great harmonics.  Filtering is period correct for 68/69 JMP-50 specs. The 1202-118 power transformer which is stock for the LV model supplies 425vdc in ss rectifier mode. This model PT was used in the majority of JMP-50 amplifiers from 1967 thru 1969. Amp is selectable for 120v, 200v, 220v/230v and 240v/250v operation on the back panel.   Output transformer is a Drake 784-139 replica with 3.3K primary impedance. Original style laminate is used with correct slotted steel and correct "cheese head" screws. Primary and secondary windings are interleaved as originals. Speaker output is selectable for 16/8/4 ohms. Killer plexi sounding 50w head that's very usuable in many playing situations with the master volume. The switchable rectifier also gives the amp 2 distinct voices to chose from. This head is in stock and available now. Any other models are also available for order and i have others heads for inventory coming soon.
