THE RICHARD FORTUS COLLECTION

QUOTES FROM THE MAN HIMSELF - STAY TUNED FOR MORE DETAILS!

"This is it- the be-all, end-all of Marshalls. It's magical. I bought this from [REDACTED]. I went over to his house and played through a stack...I plugged in to this, hit one chord, and my jaw hit the ground. The holy grail of Marshalls."

"This amp was used on a ton of recordings and during amp shoot-outs, would always win in the studio. It was used on [REDACTED]." 

"Everything about this guitar is great. I've had so many different pickups in this guitar. I believe these are Cream T- pickups. This is a piece that I will miss. I've spent so many years on stage with this one. It's on the inside cover of [REDACTED]."

"I don't know if there is another of these. Dave made this for me and has tweaked on it over the years. All hand wired, point to point. I used this with [REDACTED]."

"I grew up in St Louis and when I was a kid, many bands would end up having their trucks stolen while they were in town. I remember that Angel was one of those bands. 35 years later, I saw this amp in a shop and bought it. It's Punky Meadow's head and still has the Angel flight case. It's an incredible sounding amp."

"Unique piece that was made for me when I was in my 20's. I used it on many recordings in place of slide. The solo on the single "[REDACTED]" by [REDACTED] was done on this as well as the solo on the song "[REDACTED]" by the [REDACTED]."

"I used this as one of my main gigging amps in New York City for many years. I bought it when I was about 20 years old and it's been with me ever since."

"This was my first Marshall. It was modded by Obeid Khan and was then put back stock. This amp was with me on so many tours. From my first band- [REDACTED], to [REDACTED], the [REDACTED], [REDACTED] and [REDACTED]."
