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.

Marshall 1959RR

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.!

What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
