From Marshall UK –
“The SV20C combines the raw power of the 1959SLP and authentic voice of classic rock in a new portable style. The amp that first defined rock ‘n’ roll in the 60s has been revised for the present day, whilst remaining faithful to the original with its Plexi design and all-valve tone.
Still considered a classic by scores of legendary guitarists, the SV20C lets you play like your heroes on stage, in the studio and at home.
The SV20C is an all valve hand built amp designed and built in the UK, to accurately recreate the classic Marshall tone.
Portable and adaptable, the Studio Vintage Combo is suitable for the home with the option to switch between 20W and 5W at any time.
From saturated blues tones to biting leads for classic rock, this is unmistakably a 1959SLP.
The amp that inspired generations of guitarists immaculately recreated for the modern day.”
This cool little amp is basically a compact version of Marshall’s iconic JNP ’59 Plexi. The Studio Vintage takes that legendary tone and packs it into a 20-watt combo. It’s all about saturated blues grit and biting leads — the iconic Plexi tone.
The Studio Vintage has plenty of player-friendly features such as four separate inputs, high- and low-sensitivity loudness controls, a 3-band EQ with Presence control, an effects loop, and a DI output.
An excellent feature is the ability to cross patch the channels to achieve even greater tonal options – it really burns when the “High Treble” channel is dialled in.

This amp was bought new by its one owner less than two years ago. It has been used in a home setting and never been out of the house. Attired in stunning white tolex it is quite an eye catcher too.
It is in pristine, as new condition and would suit a new buyer at significant discount to new street price.
If you want cranked Plexi tones from a compact, studio-sized amp, Marshall’s Studio Vintage absolutely nails it.
