    Not to burst your bubble but theres plenty of those amps in Northern Ireland.

    They are Fender's best IMO.

    Well theres 2 sittin here in front of me. I have 3 friends who own them and Marcus used to sell them occasionally although they seemed to always have twins more. They're Fender's BEST amp. Plenty of people own them.

    Ha good to see i've started a debate.

    Didn't mean there weren't any in NI, just that i've never seen one to try in any local music stores (Marcus may have had them but never when I was in, plus its closed now anyway) nor any second hand ones for sale (neither on here or on Gumtree). I had tons of interest as soon as I put it up and sold it within two days so they're not exactly common. Also, in two years of gigging regularly i've never seen anyone else play one. I'm sure they exist over here though!

    It's gone now though...

    marcus is closed !!

    aw what a shame...........NOT !!

    cant say that i am surprised though.

    They are common enough its just usually no one wants to sell them, they are that good. I'm sure you had your reasons though. I usually end up regretting anything I sell. I regret sooooooo many pedals I've got rid of over the years. It pains me, lol . Thank god Marcus closed but I do miss The Emporium. GuitarRooms in Holywood has it right. Just wish it was in town. They deal in some serious vintage gear.

    I agree, not much happening in the Guitar Rooms last 2 times I have been in.

    Agreed - some strange vintage guitars (I reckon owned by other people who have plonked them there to sell) and a wall of Chinese Strats/ Teles. Some lovely acoustics but the only amp I've ever seen there is Simon's Marshall 1974x (which is fantastic). I don't know how they keep the doors open, to be honest.

    the only shop doing the biz in belfast is matchetts .useless staff , but they sell at a discount and seem to shift enough stock to keep the doors open. marcus is no great loss, the most unfriendly owner imaginable, ridiculous pricing and bored disinterested staff ( gordon excluded ) ,that recipe is more unstable than north korea. when i was in marcus,it always seemed the staff were living on their nerves and it showed.i hadnt been back to marcus for about 8 years.

    if i have cash to spend ,i like to spend it in bairds. gear is "alright" , but those guys have a great attitude, i guess that is what makes punters return. if the marcus owner had left that chip on his shoulder at home, paid attention to pricing and motivated his staff,perhaps they would still be trading.

    as it stands though, marcus is no great loss.
