So sad to post that today marks the passing of high power audio amplifier innovator Jim Marshall. ...always a gentleman.
You truly have gone to eleven now.

original catalog page. These crazy instruments received awful reviews, but collectors seem to love 'em. Check out what they're bringing on ebay these days. I'll take the first $200 cash someone hands me. While campy & cool, the questionable electronics on these rare guitars keep them from ever being reliable stage axes. Still fun to show off cuz they're so weird with all the knobs & switches for Fuzz, Wah, Trem, & Echo.

WK sig Flag strat. These Wayne Kramer models are ultra light weight with super smooth frets. Cuffy Parks of Saint Paul shared this pic, & it's surely one fine axe that everyone would be proud to own. Seymour Duncan® ’59 humbucking middle pickup and a commemorative neck plate engraved with “This Tool Kills Hate" are both unique hallmarks of this guitar. Alder body, lacquer finish, maple C neck with large ’70s-style headstock, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard vintage-style frets, along with hard-tail string-through-body bridge, Fender/Schaller® vintage-style “F” tuners and chrome hardware make it an honorable edition to the collection. Heck, I'd buy it just for the Red white & blue paint job.
