Morgan AC40 Deluxe 1x12 Combo - Custom Black Western
The Morgan AC40 Deluxe Amp is essentially an all hand-wired, 40-watt hand built, fully modded version of his very popular AC20. In fact, now that this is available, he is rarely asked to build the normal AC20 these days. What sets this amp apart from the Morgan AC20 is five things:
1) A switch on the back allowing the guitar player to switch from an EF86 preamp circuit to a 12AX7.
2) Normal or Brilliant channel voicing
3) Power Scaling
4) White Faceplate as opposed to the AC20's Black Faceplate
5) 40 watts instead of 20 watts giving you more clean headroom and volume
All this makes the AC40 Deluxe one of the most versatile Vox-ish type amps available for it's size.
So, in a nutshell, here's what we have with the AC40 Deluxe... A higher wattage modded AC30 with all the things people dislike about them improved upon.
