    I am blessed with the posting speed of John Petrucci. :fawk:

    And this thing is going to be a monster if it sounds exactly like a MkIIC+. The sound of a MkIIC+, with all the features it has? It's a huge winner in my book.

    Sucks it'll probably be around $3000. :rofl:

    More knobs and switches than a stealth bomber.

    It's like a IIC+ on steroids! Dual 5 band EQs sounds pretty awesome. Has Mesa ever done a signature amp?

    Oh my lord that is amazing! Gotta wonder why they went with the MKIIC+ clean and not the Mark I / Lonestar clean that is in the Mark V (or perhaps it is and they are just calling it the IIC+ clean for some reason).

    Probably will be out of my price range but damn I'l love to have one!

    That looks amazing! Haha and I just bought an amp yesterday (but it probably doesn't matter because this will most likely be at least $2k... and another 1,000 for a good cab). This will be on my list of things to eventually buy.

    To my knowledge, nope.

    I'm honestly surprised to see Trucci getting a sig amp before Hetfield. Then again, Trucci has ALWAYS used Mesa, while Hetfield relies on a combination of different amps.

    I thought damn near every mk series amp since the IIc and also the triaxis has had a "mkiic+" channel what makes this thing especially likely to be more accurate than any other? ;)

    To be fair it looks like an incredible amp, though. :)

    Actually yes, they have. The King Snake was a Carlos Santana sig more or less, based very heavily on his original Mark.

    Pretty sure those are just trying to emulate it while this will most likely have the same exact circuitry as the Mk2c+.

    I does kinda seem like they're trying to squeeze all they can out of the Mark series after the success of the V:25. Don't get me wrong, I like my Mark amps, and some of the new features (like the dual EQs), but I feel like people are going to get tired of the bajillions of ways you can supposedly sound like a 2c+. Something completely new would be nice.

    I think the difference between the other marks and this is that not many people really wanted the V:25; no one wanted the V:35. Mesa has also been putting out a few different offerings the past few years too, the express series is maybe 6-7 years old, the Atlantics have been out for about 4-5, they just put out the new bass strategy line. The Mark and recs are their cash cows though and it would be foolish for them to not try to revamp little things over time to keep people interested in buying new amps from dealers rather than pick up used amps if nothing had changed from the new offerings.

    I was under the impression that the V:25 was a hit and sold quite a bit. The stores nearby sold out of them immediately and couldn't keep them in store for quite a while. I got one of the first ones to get shipped to Canada (as far as I know).

    Yeah the 25 was popular as all hell. I felt the 35 was pointless though.
