1980s Marshall The Guv'nor MK1 Vintage Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal


+ shipping

Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a Marshall Guv'nor Mk1 in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Produced between 1988-1991, this Guv’nor was made during the second half of the Mk1 production, and while this iteration was made in Korea, it shares the same enclosure, circuit, and sonics as the UK-made version. The Guv’nor was Marshall's first foray into pedal building and an enduring favorite, with op-amp clipping for a particularly ripping distortion. Featuring a preamp Gain knob, three-band EQ, and a Master Volume, the Guv'nor offers controllable sizzle with a touch of compression.

The original battery door and bottom pad are intact, along with the serialized foil label. The full set of original multi-colored knobs are present, the graphics on the pedal's face are in great shape, and this Guv'nor shows only very light wear on the enclosure edges.
