     It's like tree feet and roots.  Much alike but different. For example ..... the Northern Ash Runner makes a fine specimen in the fall but tends to leave the yard when the gate is left open overnight. Would you pay more for the Runner vs. a root equipped species just based on fall colors. Then you throw in the price of shoes and ........

    I'm probably heavily biased due to the 800 being the dream amp that for some reason I keep not buying.

    Why the expensive clone, if you can own the original for much less money. And, if you you want some special tweek, you can, por 100€ put some good pedal on the signal chain.

    My JMP 50 watt (it's a 1978 head ) pretty much crushes even my 100 watt JVM, sounds every bit as good as my old JCM800 100 watt I even had signed by Jim Marshall himself. It's just a simple MV JMP, 50 watts (so they say....) & it is the amp I'd grab in a fire, no doubt. The JVM is Top-Of-The Line.Their FLAGSHIP model. Ummm, actually it kind of is. Badass amp..... like...really badass. 4 channels, MIDI,individual tone stack for each channel,best footswitch in the biz, dual Master Volumes, Reverb...yada yada yada .....super fucking LOUD...Like, really  LOUD.... that's what Rock & Roll is all about anyways, right?

    My old JMP sounds as good as any hot-rodded Plexi or any boosted 800....just sayin' .....

    I wish there was a better boutique amp out there...I'd buy one. Until then, guess I gotta wait....

     OKAY OKAY OKAY, I get it. 
    I own two JCM 800's and I will never part with either of them because I consider that sound to be integral to "my" tone.  But the real question that no one has addressed is.
    WHY IS THIS GEEK PLAYING A LES PAUL THROUGH A MARSHALL WITH A CAPO????
    WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?
