I agree with Breadfan. They arent hard to dial in. And another cool thing about mark amps is that you can dial ALOT to make a great tone. Its like the swiss army knife of amps. Also with having all the knobs/switches/eq etc......MORE »

Tough choice. I would think the Mark V would be more versatile but if you are a guy that doesn't want to screw around with EQ adjustments, then you may be better off with the Rectos. I believe all three will have a variac to......MORE »

No I didn't forget about the scalloping. My 2012 KH-DC has scalloping and it is also an SS series. That also came from the standard factory. You can also tell because of the pricing back then. Standard series models could be......MORE »

As far as I know the "100" were SS serials, which should mean they came from the standard factory. I will say, though nice, I can tell the workmanship is a small step down from my K serials (ie. no recessed back plate,......MORE »
