The Ultimate Marshall amp?

Marshall Super 100 JH Handwired Jimi Hendrix Stack (Limited Edition)

The Super 100JH is based on a Marshall Super 100 once owned by Jimi Hendrix. I have not had a chance to play this amp, and I probably won't, since it's a very expensive amp (around $8,000 retail, $6,400.00 at zZounds.com) and the production is limited to 600 amps.

Marshall engineers analyzed the original Hendrix stack and faithfully reproduced the amp, as closely as they could. The head looks very close to the old ones; it has the gold-colored Perspex (Plexi) front panel, and the head cabinet is made out of Baltic birch plywood. The black covering, logos, gold beading looks the same as the original.

The cabinet is taller than a standard Marshall cab, and it looks very cool with the gray pinstripes and with the numbers "100" in the front top left corner.

Features

I can only hope I run into one of these in a music store one day so I try it and hear what it sounds like. That is, if they would let me plug it in. An amp at this price point isn't likely to be sitting ready to use in the amp room...

Reports say that this amp has a fantastic, dynamic response and you can go from clean to big, powerful rock tones by just adjust the level on your volume knob. Who wouldn't like an amp like this?
