WOW, what a difference. The picture in front of the Marshall really looks good.

I actually ended up selling that Marshall combo this past Wednesday. To fund the Kemper in the current pic I posted. I also have a Marshall 2525c Silver Jubilee, so that other combo was getting neglected.

That looks fantastic! I love it! Quick question, did you notice a difference in how the tanning bed affected it vs the sun? Was it faster? Basically the same?
Yes I actually did. The tanning bed fades the red ALOT faster than the sun. I like sitting it out in the sun, but in all honesty the tanning bed style has more advantages.

I was hoping for a tone down in the yellow, I prefer the amber look, will put up a couple of pics of mine so far. Might ask a local guy to shoot a very thin tinted top coat on it. I really bought the wrong guitar in that R0, it’s historically correct in its colours, but it’s not what I wanted at all in a guitar. Much prefer the darker tinted tops.
