A much more affordable John5 (Marilyn Manson, a bunch of studio work) Telecaster made in Mexico. I imagine the original custom shop one was a bit expensive for the target audience. High output humbucker and a "Twisted Tele" neck PU:

A Schecter double neck with 25.5 and 26.5 scales. For those of you who play both aggro and normal in the same tune :rolleyes::D :

New Handwired Marshall Amps:

 

Marshall unveiled new handwired amplifiers and matching speaker cabinets at this year's Summer NAMM show. This ongoing series will feature some of the world's most sought after, vintage, all-valve Marshalls. Other than the limited edition Offset JTM45 Halfstack available in 1999 (only 300 were produced worldwide), this represents the first time Marshall has offered a handwired product in recent years. Like the originals, these new amps share simplicity of operation and natural valve tone.

 

"This new series was created to meet growing public demand, and to pay homage to models that, for many players, represent the ultimate in organic, all-valve guitar tone," explains Marshall Amplification U.S. Product Manager Nick Bowcott. "Our primary objective was to achieve maximum authenticity in terms of components, circuitry, construction methods, materials, specifications, aesthetics, signal path, performance, tonal characteristics and feel," he notes. "All of the original components and materials were used or reproduced, and the original methods of construction employed in the late 1960s were revisited. All transformers -- output and power -- have been meticulously re-created by Dagnall Electronics, and each amplifier's handwired tag-board lives up to the slogan, 'Point-to-Point Perfection'."

 

The initial handwired sereis models are:

 

1974X Combo with Tremolo

 

The original versions of this 18 Watt Amplifier (made from 1966--1968) are now extremely rare and highly sought after. The new, all-valve combo (3 x ECC83/12AX7s* in preamp, 1 x EZ81 rectifier, 2 x EL84s in power amp) features two channels and a valve-driven Tremolo circuit (on Channel 2). Each channel offers two inputs plus volume and tone controls. Channel 2 also has Speed and Depth controls for the Tremolo.

 

A contributing sonic factor in the original 1974 is the way the sound of the Celestion Greenback speaker softens with age. For the 1974X, Celestion revisited the recipe for the original 20 Watt, ceramic magnet, 15 Ohm, Greenback T1221 speaker, and "aged" it. The result is a new speaker proprietary to Marshall.

 

Newly added, user-friendly features on the rear panel include two speaker output jacks (the original internal speaker was hardwired to the output transformer) and an impedance selector. In addition, both the Mains and H.T. fuses are now accessible via the rear panel (in the original, fuses were internal and difficult to access and change). Most importantly, these new features have no tonal impact on the amplifier, according to Marshall.

 

1974CX 1x12" Speaker Cabinet

 

Designed to partner with the 1974X combo, the 1974CX is also loaded with the proprietary, "aged," 20 Watt Celestion Greenback T1221 speaker.

 

2061X Head

 

The original versions of this new 20 Watt, all-valve (2 x ECC83s in preamp, 2 x EL84s in power amp) Lead and Bass 20 Head (made from 1967--1973) are now highly collectable. Its two channels -- Lead and Bass -- both boast the same, simple features: two inputs (High and Low Sensitivity) and controls for volume and tone.

 

To enhance the user-friendliness of the 2061X, an impedance selector has been added to the rear panel and both the Mains and H.T. fuses are now accessible via the rear panel.

 

2061CX 2x12" Speaker Cabinet

 

This compact, 60 Watt, mono 2x12" cabinet has an angled front and is the perfect partner for the 2061X head. It sports Salt and Pepper (a.k.a. Grey Basket Weave) grille cloth, metal handles and two 30 Watt, Celestion G12H reissue speakers.

 

Pricing and Availability:

 

All four of the introductory models in this handwired series will be available in September 2004, with US MSRPs as follows:

 

1974X -- $3200 (average street price $2299)

1974CX -- $850 (average street price $599)

2061X -- $2300 (average street price $1699)

2061CX -- $1100 (average street price $799)

What are those two little gold and red thingies on either side of the bridge on the hollowbody?

Gibson's next target for litigation?

I'm sure confused!

 

New "single-cut" guitars can henceforth be referred to as 'see you in court' models!

If you look real closely between the bridge and the lead pickup, you'll see a couple of oval shaped pads. These are string mutes, and the red/gold levers push them against the strings to mute the sustain.

This is going to be a runaway hit.

 

Not because it has 80 memory locations.

 

Not because it has a headphone out, a line out, and an expression pedal in.

 

Not because it has 28-bit effects- Delays, amp, and cabinet models, chorus, transposition EQ, Noise reduction, flanger, reverb rotary speaker.

 

Not because you can use 9 of them simultaneously with 8 different routing possibilities.

 

Not because of the built in digital tuner.

 

Not because it also has two single coil and one humbucker and a 5 position switch.

 

Nope, it will be a hit because Alesis packed all this into a guitar with a RETAIL price of 349.00

I thought the red and gold thingies were

rocket launchers but I couldn't imagine

Paul Stanley playing one of these. :D

This feature was NOT included on the Country Gents played by George Harrison. I believe Gretsch didn't add the flip up mutes until '66 or '67.

 

Has anyone ever seen a guitarist acually USE THESE THINGS? :freak: I haven't. Very surprised that Gretsch has resurrected this feature. :confused:

 

EDIT: Clarification - Harrison REMOVED the mute from his first Country Gent. The second Gent he owned had the flip-up style mute, not the screw type found on this model.

 

Still not sure how you would ever use this feature? :confused:

I've gotta admit, both of those new handwired Marshalls look pretty interesting, though a little pricey.

 

Anyone know if the extension cab for the 18-watt combo- the 1974CX 1x12"- is closed- or open-backed?

 

(Since the combo's already open-backed, I figure a closed-backed extension-cab would be cool...)

Hey...where did you get that picture?

 

I've gone to the:

 

www.americanmusicsound.com website

 

...and to the:

 

www.hagstromguitars.com website

 

...and neither of them have anything posted yet...???

 

Heck...the www.americanmusicsound.com website doesn't even work...all the links are dead...???

 

Sure hope Gibson doesn't bring a lawsuit. :rolleyes:
Well...that would be an interesting lawsuit.

 

The Hagstrom lineage goes back 'bout as deep as Gibson's.

 

Hagstrom had its models available a looooong time ago...their guitars are not Johnny-come-lately nock-offs.
