they totally come up on reverb from time to time:

two listed now, one of which will ship. sure, it's pricier to the UK i'd imagine (US shipping is listed at $70), but totally worth it IMO.

here's mine, with my delonge strat:

Just keep an eye out for them, sometimes you’ll get them for a deal. It really is worth waiting to find one! It’s a Marshall on steroids with a dedicated clean channel making it super versatile. Especially if an actual Marshall is out of your price range which was my case. 
 

@daveyjones the rig is looking great! I see you have the green spectraflex cable as well!

yup, green from the head into my pedals loop. blue out from the tuner to the guitar. just like tom in 96.

I got mine from Music Go Round for $250 (fantastic shape. I may as well have stolen it). I've seen them pop up on Facebook Marketplace. Just be patient you'll find one.

And don't over pay (unless you're ok with that). I'd probably pay $550-600 tops and it better be in fantastic shape.
