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


+ shipping

Up for sale, a Marshall The Guv’nor Mk1 in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. Produced between 1988-91, this Guv’nor was made during the first half of Mk1 production in the UK. The Guv’nor was Marshall’s first foray into pedal building and is an enduring favorite, with op-amp clipping for a particularly ripping distortion. With simple, user-friendly controls including a preamp Gain knob, three-band EQ, and a Volume, the Guv’nor offers controllable British sizzle with a touch of compression.

There is only limited wear along the edges of the enclosure. The original battery door, bottom pad, and serialized foil label are present and quite clean, as are the original multi-colored knobs.
