Marshall 50W Super Lead MKII

The owner of this 1974 Super Lead wanted a lot more distortion, but still wanted it to sound like a Marshall.

A pre-phase inverter master volume had already been added to the front panel, so I switched it over to a post-phase inverter volume circuit, and modified the preamp to resemble something like a hot-rodded JCM800.  I also rewired the power switch and fuse for improved safety and added some tube/transformer protection features.  

I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Sounds just like a high-gain Marshall should.  The two volume controls can be dialed in separately for more vintage/modern tones and all the inputs still function as advertised.  Plus, the modifications are easily reversible if the owner should ever decide to sell it.
