Three channel 60W valve amp
12AX7/6L6 valves
Hand built (he even wound his own transformers) - loosely based on a Vox AC30 but with extra preamp bits. Some of these come with EL34s.
Abbey no longer make guitar amps but Ross Nichols is contemplating making them again. If you find one - buy it.
I also own a JCM900 but this is the amp I gig with.

how gainy is it?

It's quite gainy esp on the third channel which kicks in two extra stages of gain (ie both sides of a 12AX7). The second channel gives a good heavy crunch but not really a full blown modern metal chugga chugga unless you boost it a little with a pedal.
