Yup, it's a valve amp with an engraved front, hand built as a prototype along with, as I understand it, two others.
This one is the 30W and I believe the others were a 15W and a 5W (both valve amps) with different engraved patterns on the front.
This 30W matches the Japanese Z custom MF that i also am lucky to own.

Here are my amps, you can just see a Fender Bassman 135 with 1x15 cab sneaking into pic - that gets used for bass or very loud guitar. Mostly I gig with the 1x12 MusicMan combo, sometimes with the Fender 1x15 underneath it.

The amp I use most of all is the little '57 Fender Champ clone by Caiman Agnew (boutique amp maker in Dublin); it's perfect for home use and recording.

The Blues junior is usually used for rehearsals as it's a lot lighter and quieter than the MusicMan.

I am into the tonal ideas that came from the genius of Mr Leo Fender. The fact that he considered the amp to be part of the instrument and therefore built both says it all - nobody else really seems to have nailed that idea.

Main amp for the past year has been an H&K Tubemeister, but I'm gonna flog it now. Doesn't get switched on at home since I bought an Axe-fx. I'll probably get a cab and poweramp for it at some point.

Main guitar is a Fender strat with Warmoth neck and Kinman pickups.

I went to see Dweezil Zappa play last night in Nottingham and I reckon that Axe-fx was what he was using with a power amp and a couple of 2x12 cabs. He had a great sound and some top-drawer fx on hand; not sure if they were coming from the Axe-fx or a bunch of boutique-looking pedals he was using too.

I gave up trying to take decent pictures. So here's my refurbished Chandler Custom Strat, Lexicon MPXG2 + R1 and Burman Pro501 combo. Last thing I need to do with the guitar is install a decent tremolo. The only one that does the job so far is the Stets trem but I don't like how it fussy and vintage it looks. A Wilkinson VS-100C would have been perfect but they aren't made any more.

My nice and simple (and cheap!) rig, kept just in case I should ever find myself back on guitar duties in a band (looking less and less likely the longer I leave it, but never say never). For the time being, it lives at the studios for our rhythm guitarist to use at rehearsals because it's better than it sitting in a cupboard doing nothing!

So yeah, Marshall MA50H and 1936. The MA series took a bit of stick for sounding duff, but I honestly think that was because people weren't getting them out of their bedrooms and opening them up. I'm yet to hear a straight-up 50+ watt valve guitar amp with no attenuation or fancy digital tricks sound as good at bedroom levels as it does when you let it breathe a bit. For good or for bad, this one certainly sounds like a Marshall to me!

Here's mine. I've owned and gigged more amps & guitars over the years than I care to think about, but right now this does everything I need. The guitar is a recently acquired Rob Williams custom build (see the separate thread for more info), and the amp is a Cornford Hurricane (20 watts). Couple of Boss pedals (CH1 chorus, GE-7 graphic that doubles as a booster, and a DD-3 delay), and away we go.

Guzzibass, how do you find the Bigsby/3-saddle tele bridge combination on your bitsa tele? I've got a similar setup on my cheapy Axl, and it seems to retain the tele sound and feel well enough, but I find I need to keep the saddles well lubricated with graphite from a pencil to keep it in tune. The last guitar I had with a roller bridge was a wobbly, rattly nightmare and never actually rolled when using the vibrato, so I guess the tele bridge is a reasonable compromise.

Actually it's rock solid and so is the tuning - I've never had any trouble with it. Testament to the guy who fitted it I guess...!!

Used to have a 175 (It was actually a Heritage 575 as it happens, but since it was made using the original Gibson jigs by former Gibson employees you'd have to say it was the next best thing). Straight into a Polytone Mini Brute IV.

I did solo dinner/function jazz gigs with it. Lovely, lovely guitar. I sometimes wish I'd never sold it, but needs dictated at the time.

Im a bed-room musician, a relative beginner that is, so keep my "rig" very affordable and "just what I need right now" for practice and some recording.

Here is my practice amp Kustom PH2012R which is a 20 watt amp but comes with a 12" Kustom speaker which sounds awesome. This amp has a Reverb which is another plus. For the price you cant find better solid state with a 12" speaker, IMO. Behind is the Harley Benton CG-15 Watt with a 6,5" speaker. Loud amp non-the-less. I use both for stereo playing. My Digitech RP70 has 2 line out for stereo playing which is a great feature and great sounding multi processor pedal, I love it. I mean this pedal sounds so good it make me play every day (I cant motivate myself to play if the sound is crap)

This is my current rig - the guitars are a heavily modifed mid nineties japanese Jackson fusion (pretty much a dinky but with gibson 24-3/4" scale length) and a 1980 Yamaha SG1000.

The amp is a 50 watt Marshall DSL which I love to bits - pedalwise I have a lot of the stuff in the pic for sale because my pedalboard takes up to much space on the tiny stages my band tends to play and weghs more than the sun!!! Thinking of switching over to something like the digitech gsp1101 or tc electronic gmajor with a small midi controller on stage and midi controlled bypass loops for dirt pedals etc. in the rack - basically trying to acheive what I have at the moment in a lighter more compact package.

This is my Heritage H204D, fitted with a Roland synth pickup. The amp is an early 80s Fender 30, one of Fender's first channel switching all tube amps. Every few years I mod it one way or another, and it is currently wired like a blackface Vibrolux Reverb without the tremolo circuit.
