Archetypal amps: 10 defining rigs

The venerable Guitar Player has posted a list of “The 10 Most Iconic Guitar Amps.” You could probably run down the roster yourself: Fender Twin Reverb, Vox AC 30, Fender Bassman et al. I mean, hey―they’re iconic for good reasons. Here’s what GP says about another legendary amp, the Marshall 1959 Super Lead 100 Watt Plexi:

Introduced in 1965, the amplifier included four inputs, two channels, 100 watts of searing power and a Plexiglas faceplate (hence “Plexi”). Matched with 4×12 cabinets, the 1959 Super Lead helped to popularize the ‘Marshall stack.’ The amplifier can be famously seen being played by Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock.
