if I havn't convinced you enough, then there is no more I can do for you. The best possible amp you can buy for your money! My marshall now sits in the corner collecting dust. my only beef with the thing is that, it could of included a more colorful theme, but I guess that was the way steve wanted it.
Price: $1300.00 (new)

Features:
No monkey grip!? but the wide fat TONEs make up for it. This is a great breakthrough in high quality amp sounds. most of the modern amps sound like complete crap, but this baby will make you melt, from the second you plug it in! even the sound of the EL34 tubes warming up made me squeal with delight. to be honest with you. I'll heard marshalls that have a distortion with a little bit more weight, but I've never heard an amp match the legacy's uncanny ablility to produce a warm organic, harmonicly sophisticated distortion. And the clean sound is quite a monster.
Sound Quality:
monster sounds. Distortion is top of the line.
Ease of Use:
this amp's control design is for retards! Mids, bass, treble, reverb , prescence, gain, two channels. Dial in your tone, and get to the buisness of rocking!
Durability:
this thing can sustain quite a beating. (though I don't recommend you beat on it :)

This is the last amp I'll own. I may get a couple more heads just to have. It is very easy to find your own voice with this amp and no effects are needed for this thing to sound good, it's great right out of the box.
