          Y'all are freakin' wrong!!!

          There was a guy at the Arlington Guitar Show this weekend that had two JMP heads, both 100 watts. One was a 1973 the other a 1974, each one on its own 4x12 cab. Then he had another 4x12, 1972 I think, in MINT, and I mean MINT condition. It was covered and he uncovered it for me to see when I walked by and commented on his amps. Talk about some serious .

            The problem with minty stuff is that you get afraid to use it. My old 58 LP Special was in really, really nice shape- but it was too nice for me to play out. I did ONE show with it. My cab was in pretty decent shape- except for the stains on the grillecloth and a few small rips in the tolex. I had gigged this cab for 4-5 years and it had held up well. I was playing bass in a band and the guitar player used my cab for a show- in one night I got a broken corner protector and a dozen rips in tolex- including a MAJOR tear on the back. I wounldn't even notice anything short of a square inch tear now.

              my head and cab (both '79) are as new as you can get. i swear it's cleaner than the stuff on the showroom floor at any guitar center. the head has no tears and the cab just has some small scuffs on it but no big tears with wood showing. also after my top secret cleaning technique the tolex shines like new on both the head and cab!

                    I've got a bunch more pictures, but I'm going to let Luke post them in the morning. He wanted me to throw one up to satisfy your cravings until he could sort through them and everything. So for all who asked, here's his Marshall:

                      B-E-A-Utiful Luke! Classic Marshalls just roar, especially KT88 ones, hope you don't have any neighbors (or family members) that mind loud guitar playing.

                        Congrats Luke....nice choice. Glad we could twist your arm a little. Can't wait for a full report, and to have high speed access so I can see the pics.

                        Mike...as for you....bastard. Here's mine right now.

                            That's the TONAL go ahead man! Besides she DID buy me a PRS back in April, but it's going to have to find a new home I'm afraid.

                              Nice score, Luke. That is very very nice looking. I'm always in awe when I see an amp of that age in that good of shape.

                              Here's mine. It may be a newer model but as of today, she's actually old.

                                Do you not recognize your own face?!? That's you. Mine was behind the camera, where I could see the LCD screen. There's no way I could have got my face in that or any picture. Plus, the camera would have broken afterward.
