15 Sep Marshall JMP 2203 79 VS 81


Kyle Cyr

Hi everyone.... I am 23 and have been studying and learning the guitar for about 7 years or more and have really become attached to AC/DC and all classic rock in general and just can get enough. I recently fulfilled one of my dreams and purchased my dream Guitar a 1970 Gibson SG which I live to death and have yet to play a better guitar. Solodallas (Fil) has been a big influence in my playing and learning from the begining and now this site will keep the journey going. Rock On Fil :)

        Nope the 81 is a Canadian Import model which only ever came with toggle switches. I will do a video soon with my Malcolm Guitar which has a pickup right out of one of Malcolm’s real guitar’s as the 81 sounds great with that guitar.

    To my ears the 79 sounds better. Keep on rockin’ those AC-DC tunes
