Marshall 1959RR: we've played it!
Launched at NAMM in a flurry of crushing chords, Guitarist has one of the first examples of the brand new Marshall 1959RR Randy Rhoads signature head in our hot little hands.
It’s based on Randy’s original white amp and the 1959RR therefore also boasts the mod the man himself requested that allowed him – and now you and us! – to control the extra levels of gain available.
Marshall designer Danny Thomas took the original head apart to make sure things were reproduced exactly, and we’ll be reviewing the amp in full in the next issue of Guitarist, which goes on sale 13th March. We’ll also be featuring a video demo of the amp on that issue’s CD.
All aboard etc.!
