Why is 2.00 holy grail?

 This one for whatever reason responds like a Bogner head really and of the 8 units we have destroys the others tone, gain and volume wise and is very touch sensitive.  :dunno: Their is also a thickness to it that cuts through and roars like the Bogner Uberschall and it perfectly stock!
 
So for me it's the Holy Grail but some may feels it's too ballsy or responsive; I have a friend that has an original 1.38 that came by last month ( when it actually worked ) and flat out said he did not care for how thick and full the tone was because he enjoyed the more transparent processed sound and wanted it, like his does, to like a studio recording and NOT a head!

 So as always, tone is so very subjective to all of us players and I bet as well there would be several on here that may not care for my "Holy Grail" MP-1.

Are you 100% sure it's perfectly stock?
From how you describe it, it seems to have Mesa/Soldano mod...  :lol:

Hey DjC, sounds like your friend would be happier with a MP2.

So pic of MP-1, is this the one you just got back from MJMP ?  Of the units I've received over time, the most common issue has always been a bent rack ear (more times than not now I think about it).  Fortuitously, the bend has been the only problem (so straighten it with a small shifter spanner) and the units have worked fine.

My serial is 801707. MarshallJMP said it was an earlier unit from 1987 judging by the chips in it, and the 1707th one made. I don't have another to compare it to, but man it just sounds great. I'll never mod it because it's in very good condition. Only thing I'll do is install a battery mod, and I'm about to pop in the new firmware too.

Do you guys know how many MP-1's were actually made? I didn't think that even 1707 were made. I was thinking like 1500 at most, but judging by the serial numbers out there, thousands were made.
