If you were to ask the man or woman on the street to draw a guitar amp, the chances are they’d scribble a black box with a gold control panel, and a script logo on the front that reads ‘Marshall’. The iconic nature of the Bletchley-based company’s designs have made them part of the rock ’n’ roll flrmament for over half a century, but it’s been a while since Marshall has really turned heads with a new valve amp. The Origin series aims to change that – affordable, valve-powered and classically toned, these new amplifiers aim to steal a march on Marshall’s competitors and put their boxes back in the hands of ordinary guitar players. Find out if they hit the mark on p18. Another notable launch this month comes in the shape of George Lowden’s first ever production electric guitar. The GL-10 brings every bit of the Northern Irishman’s guitarbuilding genius to the table – find out if it was worth the wait on p88.

About The Guitar Magazine

The September 2018 issue of The Guitar Magazine is on sale now! This month we find out if Marshall’s wallet-friendly new Origin series delivers what everyone has been waiting for from the legendary British amp brand. We also tip our hats to the 10 greatest Marshall tones in rock history and find out how they were made – Messrs Clapton and Hendrix feature heavily but there are one or two surprises, too... Originators and trailblazers are something of a theme in this month’s mag – inside you’ll also find interviews with Doors star Robby Krieger, a celebration of the genius of Seth Lover and a close-up and personal look at the solidbody electric that started it all: a 1950 Fender Broadcaster. Elsewhere in gear we round-up the best products from the recent Summer NAMM show in Nashville and review a pile of great new products from Rick Turner, Stone Deaf, Lowden, Eastman and more. As if all that wasn’t enough there are three fantastic competitions, giving you he chance to win a Fender Player Stratocaster, House Of Tone pickups and a luxury Pinegrove strap.
