Mesa Boogie Lone Star Classic Private Reserve
Words will simply not do any justice to how gorgeous this amp is. It has quilted maple case and it actually looks like it is in water. This is not an amp you go out an gig with. You keep this thing home and just drool over how beautiful it is. Same everything as the regular Lone Star.

Mesa Boogie is one of the best amplifier companies in the world. They have been building high grade high quality amps since the 70's. They took a different approach to the high gain amps that Marshall was putting out at the time and whet a bit different route. The have been able to grab a piece of the rock and roll market and push the envelope.

With this amp they continue that tradition of expanding their territory in the amplifier world.

I love how modern Mesa Boogies now have a foot switchable effects loop. So you can with easy click on the footswitch and take the effects loop out of the circuit. This is handy for the tone purist that doesn't want anything in between his guitar and amp. Some effects loops degrade the tone a little bit and this attacks that issue.

I love the tone of this amp. The clean tone of this amp is amazing. This is basically Mesa's approach towards the blues and country rock players. It still retains that natural grind that is infamous with Mesa Boogies, but a milder voicing for the softer bluesier side of rock and roll. Still a killer amp and an amp full of warm tone. You really hear the warmth of the tone in this amp compared to other Mesa Boogies. There is a purist to the tone and sweetness to the structure of its voicing.


This is a fantastic amp for those who want a little tamer Mes boogie amp and still want the features and feel that makes Mesa Boogie great. This is a great amp with many features and tone for fender and Marshall players all around. Having two separate channels with several voicing options within each channel along with a solo boost, this amp is a go ready gigging amp for many players.

At new these amps come in at around $3499, which is about double the price of a regular Lone Star amp. SO you best be sure you want this one. I recommend this to the person who plays a lot of covers or pop and rock music. This is going to be one of Mesa Boogies' most versatile amplifiers.
