  MGL AmpWorks MGL50HG High Gain Amp Head
(Item#695) MGL AmpWorks MGL50 HG high gain amp, a tribute to the great modded Marshall tones of the ‘80’s and forward.This is a single channel master volume amp w/ three 12AX7 preamp tubes and a pair of EL34 power tubes. All tube preamp circuit, no extra gain from solid state or diode clipping circuits. The focus of this amp was: lots of useable gain without any need to add pedals. Singing lead tones with plenty of sustain. Also great clarity and note definition when playing chords so every note is heard, chunky low mids and a presence in the upper mids that makes for effortless "Superlead" like harmonics that jump off the strings. Much attention was focused on the importance of sounding great at low home volumes, and all of this without compromising the tone and feel. This is beast of an amp with plenty of attitude and a blast to play! We’re also very happy to have partnered with a killer Los Angeles based guitar player, Jimmy Burkard, who is doing all of the demo videos! Please use the link below to visit the new MGL Amps website for detailed descriptions and demo videos.  Setting Font SizeCLICK HERE: MGL AmpWorks.com
UPDATE: Thanks to all of the great customers who have purchased our amps and continue to enjoy them! As with most manufacturing and other amp builders, COVID has made many things more difficult, including getting parts, increased pricing for parts and crazy inflated shipping costs. The price of our Dagnall power transformer alone went up by $40.00 per unit. And that's just 1 part. I have absorbed all of the price increases for the last year but as of now I need to bump the price of the 50w amps by $75.00 to cover at least part of the increases. Thanks and hope you understand.

  MGL AmpWorks MGL50 Amp Head (VERSION 2)
(Item#694) Version 2 MGL AmpWorks MGL50 master volume amp. This is an updated version of the original MGL50 amp we released 3 years ago. The foundation is still based on the Marshall JMP - JCM800 2204 circuit but with some new mods in a few areas that gives the amp more gain and a tighter, more focused voice that will cover higher gain playing without having to boost the front end with a pedal. But you can also back off the preamp and still get all of the classic 2204 tones. We’re also very happy to have partnered with a killer Los Angeles based guitar player, Jimmy Burkard, who is doing all of the demo videos! Please use the link below to visit the new MGL Amps website for detailed descriptions and demo videos.

  NEW MGL AmpWorks MGL20 Version 2 Amp Head
(Item#693) Now available, the NEW MGL20 Version 2 (V2). Over the last bunch of months we’ve had a number of customers that couldn’t decide between the standard MGL20 circuit and the high gain version. So that sparked the idea of combining both circuits in one amp. The MGL20 prototype is around just for these projects! By adding a mini switch on the front and back panel we came up with a way to incorporate both circuits in the same amp. I then lent the prototype to a good local customer who played it quite a bit for a few months and he was super happy with the tones he was getting from both circuits. We are now building one for him. I told a few other potential customers about it and they both ordered this new version. So as of now, all future MGL20 amps will be built to this spec. The switch on the front to the right of the input jack selects between the 2 gain structures. In the down position it’s the original circuit, and in the up position you get the high gain. The switch on the back between the speaker jack and fuse holder selects the choice between 2 different fixed resonance circuit values. The down position works great with the original circuit. In the up position you get more bottom end thump and that works well with the high gain circuit. Use whichever one gets you the sound you’re looking for!  Please use the link below to visit the new MGL Amps website for detailed descriptions and demo videos.

  Gibson 2018 Custom Shop Tom Murphy Painted Brazilian 1959 Les Paul Reissue
(Item#684)(as new condition)(MGL's "Guitar of the Week") 2018 Tom Murphy painted Brazilian '59 reissue. This guitar is from a run of 20 that were done for a Japanese dealer in 2018 and then sat at Gibson for over a year due to the Japanese dealers not being able to get the CITES approval for import into Japan, so in August of 2019 the guitars were offered to the top US dealers. This run of R9's had "Handpicked" woods, Tom Murphy painted including a more faded and very vintage accurate back color and Brazilian rosewood fingerboads. The burst finish on this guitar is Tom's "Weak Tea Burst" over a real vintage looking eastern maple top, guitar weighs 8 lbs 12 ounces, super comfortable "C" shape neck that measures: 1st fret - .870", 12th fret - .971", super dark and just about black Brazilian board, Custombucker pickups that read: bridge - 7.84K, neck - 7.77K, the control cavity and hang tag are both initialed by Tom. This is a killer looking, sounding and playing guitar! (detailed tone report coming). Guitar comes with hang tags, warranty paper, Murphy certificate and reissue Lifton case. I'm in no rush to sell this guitar and the price is firm. The asking price on a new Murphy Lab painted and aged R9 is 13-14K and IMO this guitar much more desireable and collectable.
