Maybe the foundation should just get that one from you Bill! It seems to be exactly what they are looking for in a close replica. Really good looking job too I might add.

I'd be honoured !
Thanks for the kind words.

Unfortunately I did not have the time to make any clip or video. Guess I'll have to build another one !

It may be true. The Hendrix Foundation Of America believes it may have found some original West Coast Marshalls. They have also put me in contact with Hiwatt amps, and I have talked to the CEO about the possibility of building a special "Jimi 69" super lead, with the West Coast mods built in.

All very speculative, but at least folks are thinking about it. We shall see.
perhaps you could ask Mars***l?

Roe,
Yes, the most logical question, the first one I asked when I was approached. I was told that Marshall has some arrangement with Janie, and that would make it difficult. But then again, who knows?
