Oh I wish i was stateside so i could post some gut shots of my 2 modded JCM800s. The one that was done by Elan Menron looks like a rats nest with a urinal cake inside. There is even a tube coming out of the side! of the chassis.
But you know what there is nothing on the market like it and no stock 800 can come close to touching it for hi gain stuff. For what I want out of it its a huge improvement. If I could find a modern channel switching amp with the same gain and voicing as my Langer modded 800 I would never have to buy another amp.
Its not like 800's are particularly rare even now 30 years later. I'm not sure why people get so bunged up with guys mod them. The reason is simple you mod cause what your after isnt available in a production amp.
