Great sounding amp. Neil Young is Mr 5E3. What an amazing range those amps have.
Some cool pics of the build also
Neil Young has alot to do with him asking for a 5E3...My brother played a few covers of Neil's in a band and was always looking for that tone. This nails it, whenever I play this amp, I have to play Cinnamon Girl and Ohio by CSNY because it really sounds like the record thru this one.
As for the pics...I used that BF era silver grille cloth only temporarily because I have lots of it laying around, though I dug the Red Tolex. It's getting a Marshall Salt&Pepper grille as soon as I do another order of Tolex and Grillecloth. Some of my Favorite looking amps were the coloured Marshalls from the early 70's so I like to emulate that whenever I can.
