What an incredible piece of art that amp is. I know I'm posting a bit late in the game, but holy smoke. Excellent work George, you're the best.
Why is it we can remember where all the wires go, but can never find a pick?

JTM 45/ 100

Post by JDavisApple » Wed Mar 14, 2007 8:28 pm

George, is there any possible way you can make this 100 watt JTM 45 into a kit so the common man dose not have to morgae his house for this amp? :D . Please! It would be awesome if you could make this into a kit very VERY soon. $3,500 its beautiful... almost orgasmic?... but I dont have the money to do this :cry:

It just arrived! I am the proud owner of the new Metro JTM45/100 Serial Number, 66002. The second production amp. I run this through a Stone Age Custom Cabinet Loaded with Heritage Celestion G12H's. This combination is a match made in guitar tone heaven.

Visual: In a word, "Beautiful". I've never seen a chassis that shines quite like this one here. George must have been polishing this for some time.

Tone: Where to begin? I've played two guitars through this so far, both sound exactly as one would expect. My tone hose is officially unkinked, lol. Love that.

02' Stock Les Paul Standard: Hello Angus Young, Jimmy Paige... The tone is like any old school album with the Marshall/Humbucker combination. With the amp dimed I can play open chords that are cystal clear with saturated power tube distortion. Backing off the guitar volume knob from "10" to "7" cleans things up nicely without leaving the tone sounding "thin". I will post again when I put some real pickups in my LP.... i.e. BareKnuckle Mules.

07' Custom Warmoth Strat Hollow Body with BareKnuckle Apache's: Of course Im going Jimi Hendrix here... Guitar into analogman modded Real McCoy Picture Wah, to an Eternity Love Pedal... Blues Heaven.

Hats off to George for the amp, Hats off to John for the Cab... This rig is the twig and the berries.

Sorry in so late about the middle of the topic, but an N72 will NEVER replace a 1073.

If you guys like to have your own stuff, an API rack, and ADesigns Pacifica modules. That is what guitar was born for.. (unless you have.. or.. and..)


I want one of these amps too.. are there still parts? :D

I hope it's not that deadly black mold that makes all my gear smell good.

Jump on the 'wagon.

MetroAmp has everything you need.

Two thumbs up.

A bill of materials will be up soon. I've made my own but it has part numbers and stuff on it, so there's no point in posting it, but you can order everything you need from the MetroAmp store. Reading through the threads in the links above, you can see where people are selecting different components. I think for this one, I'll go with the Sozo premium line, for example.
