arshalls famous 1959 Plexi is arguably the most famous amp of all time. From its genesis in the late-sixties, a Super Lead 100 sat atop two 4 x 12 Celestion-loaded cabinets is still for many players the defi nitive rock guitar rig. Hendrix, Clapton, Kossoff, Beck, Page and Van Halen, to name just a few, have all used this amp at one time or another and created history with it, recording some of the most influential tracks ever committed to tape. For some time now Marshall has offered a printed circuit board Plexi reissue, but following the introduction of its Hand- Wired series 1974 and 2061 amps, the question everyones been asking is, "when is the hand-wired 1959 going to be made? Well, the wait is finally over: the Plexi is now available in the original format that was used for only a few years before Marshall switched to PCB manufacture, turning the handwired Plexi into the holy grail of guitar amplifiers.
