Well its based on the original JCM 800 2203 so they will generally have the same sound, but since it is a reissue it may have better quality.

someone told me it isnt as good as an original


Its not as good. Just buy a used one. Why would you wanta break the bank on a reissue when you can have the real thing for half the price.

Vintage > Re-issue.

I'm just saying. I'm not a fan of the 800 heads reissue, not as good as the real things. Just go on ebay and search for one.

what model number does slash use/used for appetite for destruction?

Didn't he use a Plexi or a modded jcm 800/900? I don't know, but you can get pretty dang close to his tone with a 800/900.

Remember that Slash has used many amps. In the studio back in '87 he used a 2203 with 6550 power tubes. Live though he used a Silver Jubilee and a Silver Jubilee with KT66's for cleans. Then for Use Your Illusion he blended a Silver Jubilee, a 2203 with 6550's and a 1987 (Plexi) into a 1960V. Live he used the Slash signature amps (which are Silver Jubilees). Tody he uses a blend a Slash signature amp, a 2203 with 6550's, 1987 (Plexi) and a Vox AC30. Live he uses the Slash signature amps. Oh and remember a JCM800 will basically be needed to be cranked to sound similar to Slash.

^Possibly, but the sound of a power amp overdrive is hard to replicate. The best thing to do is to put in THD Yellow Jackets or use an attenuator (Weber Mass or THD Hot Plate reccomended).

I've been doing some research on the weber attenuators and they seem quite reliable. Which model + wattage should I purchase? (Sorry for invading your thread TS)

THD is a company (short for total harmonic distortion, quite clever)

makes the best of the best!

The Mass is very good since it preserves alot of your tone. I prefer Webers over Hotplates.
