I've had a number of customers contact me about getting an MGL50 amp head, but without an effects loop and the extra switches. One guy said "you know, like a bare bones version". So after thinking about it some, I thought it was a good idea. So the MGL50 "BareBones" model is now available with a Jeff Swanson tolexed head box for $2,400.00. Everything is exactly the same except but the effects loop and extra switches. And those holes in the chassis are filled with black plastic push-in caps.
