I was thinking about it, and trying to figure out what the very best Marshalls, Mesas, and Fenders are. Of course, it's all subjective, and there's different models for different tones, but if you had to choose 3 Marshalls, 3 Mesas, and 3 Fenders to own for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Mine would be
Marshall 72 100W Superbass, 2550 50W Jubilee, and the limited 92 Anniversary 6100 Blue 3 channel EL-34 high polished brass model. Those heads are soaring over $2000 now, and are the best 30th Ann. models.
I actually found a picture. Note, the brass logo and highpolished front. The regular blue ones had a white plastic logo and brushed gold chassis. Most 30th Ann.'s were plain black.
Mesa Triaxis preamp/2:100 power amp, the new 100W Stiletto EL-34 head, and the 1-12 Subway Rocket w/EL-84's.
Fender Tweed Twin Custom Shop, one of Lew's Tweed Deluxes which have to be sweet, and a mint specimen of 65 Super Reverb.
