What options do I have converting a Mark IVa combo to a head

Post by wiiqwertyuiop » Wed Jan 17, 2018 2:04 pm

I want to convert my Mark IVa combo into a head I can't find a place to by a head shell for it. I am wondering if anyone knows where I can get one for it. Does Mesa still sell them? Or is it possible to use a Mark V head shell for it? If not do I have any other options? Thanks in advance.

Some people in this forum have made the headshells but you can ask from Mesa also if you’re plenty in money..
Current:
- Electra-Dyne
- Mark V
- 2x12 Recto horizontal
- 4x12 Stiletto slanted
- Gibson R7 Goldtop
- Custom strat
- Ibanez RG1527

I've converted 4 Mark combos to heads now, I have a guy make custom shells for me. You can see them in some of my vids along with his contact info (link in my sig). Runs about $300.

I've actually seen some of your vids before but never saw that in the vid description. Thanks! I'll definitely look into that.

There is a forum member who made me a headshell for my IIC+ combo -> head conversion. Search for GTS.

Nice head; love that purple. GTS doesn't seem to active anymore though.

May be related to the spammer activity lately ?

I just saw it now, for some reason it ended up in my spam folder.
