Super awesome!

How close do you get to Johnny tone with that rig? Seems like you'd be right there.

So what's the story with that head? It's a 4 input, so it's not a 2203. 2203s have two inputs and a master volume. Or has it been modded?

The Johnny Tone comes really really close, but i think to get the 100% a cranked Marshall 1959 would be more better to get the old distorted sound :D I play the Ramones and Ramones style sounds with down strokes in the neck area like Johnny .... using no or low PreAmp and cranking the Poweramp gives you more the old Ramone tone .... all with more PreAmp Gain gives you the more modern Ramone Tone (80's & 90's)

I bought the 2203 modded ... there was a LED behind the Low-Input Jacket. I've removed later the mods and for band reason installed a switchable (footswitch) second master volume to have a solo sound :) to get a better optic i installed a second fake input jack, to get a Plexi look ... the other Jacket is the input for the Footswitch :)

New Marshall in the stable for me. Yay!

It's a 2001 Plexi reissue 1959 SLP.

I found a Craigslist ad from a nice young man wanting to trade his 1960B 4x12 for a 2x12. He wanted to downsize. I need another 4x12 like I need a hole in the head, but I had a 2x12 to spare, and I'm a sucker for obscene displays of volume, so we made the deal. 8-)

The new family.
