Newbie here, just showing my Mesas.

New guy checking in. Finally my registration issues have been sorted out.


I'm a total hack as a guitar player but I build my own guitars on a semi-professional basis and I am something of a Mesa/Boogie addict.

My first Boogie was a Mark IIA from 1978 which I regret having sold about 20 years ago. Actually I'd buy it back if I were to find who has it now.
Serial number was either 3114 or 3116. It's an HRG head.

Today my Boogie collection consists of my Mark III black dot (Simulclass, reverb, EQ), my SOB 60 watt head, my Studio .22, and currently one, about to be two, Triple Rectifier Solo heads.

I'm an electronics technician by trade and training and I acquired the Triple Wrecks both in need of repair. Neither one of them was more than 2 hours to fix start to finish.

I'm starting to take on more amp repairs for a friend of mine who's been doing it for 40 years but he's having health issues. So I'm picking up some work from him and learning a lot quickly.


IF the picture I'm trying to post actually works, then you'll see that my Mark III is in a custom head I made for it. Peruvian Walnut with a flamed maple face. I opted to center the logo because, why not? I wanted it there. And that marks it as NOT being an original Mesa cabinet.

I see it just fine in my browser. (Firefox)

Here's the direct URL. Copy paste and go.

I don't know if that'll work or not.
