Hey guys,

I've got the option to trade my 1982 JCM 800 2203 for a Hayden classic lead 80.

Does anyone have any experience with the Hayden and would you say its worth the trade?

No experience with that particular model, but I tried Hayden's Mofo 30 a while back & thought it was awesome.

Before you make your decision, check where it was made. Hayden moved their manufacturing to China from Britain a while back, and apparently the quality control on the Chinese ones is pretty poor, but the British ones are OK.

isn't the 2203 the sought-after 800? if so, i'd hang onto it. Aside from which amp is better (i haven't tried the lead 80; i have a little petite 5 which is pretty nice, but it has a slightly unique tone), the marshall is gonna have better resale etc. If you really wanted to try the hayden you would likely get a better deal by selling the marshall separately and then buying the hayden...

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

It is the "sought after" but they really don't sell as well as people think. Its handwired in Britain bassically the top flight haden amp.

I tried the Hayden MoFo some time back, and thought the same thing. But I did not know they moved their production to China, so I would be cautious. Oddly, I have never seen a Hayden in L.A. that was not the MoFo. Hell; I wasn't sure they made anything else.

^ yeah, I know some are made in britain, some in china, you just have to check which is which. I think the older version of the mofo is british & the newer version is chinese, but not 100% sure so its worth checking before buying.

i think some of the older mofo 30s were chinese, too. only the earliest mofo 30s were UK-made, as far as i'm aware.
