Burgaw, NC -- February 26, 2013 -- Fans of Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson and his stunning guitar tone finally
have the opportunity to get their hands on one of Lifeson's most prized pieces of gear. After working
with engineers at Mojotone, one of the leading custom amp builders in North America, Lifeson is putting
his name on an exact replica of the custom amplifier used in his guitar rig. Dubbed the Lerxst Omega,
the amp will be available to the public immediately.

The Lerxst® Omega amplifier was created by Mojotone based on a vintage Marshall amp Lifeson used in
the studio while recording the band's latest album, "Clockwork Angels." With select modifications made
to the circuitry and an overwhelming attention to aesthetic detail, this 25/50 watt amp is a marvel in the
world of modern sound amplification. And for a guitarist like Alex, who has one of the most distinctive
and recognizable tones in rock music, the Lerxst has to live up to a high level of expectation.

"It sounds so good!" stated Lifeson, moments after receiving the very first build of his new signature
amp. "We pulled the Marshall last night after A/B-ing the two. The tonal character is quite similar, but
the response of the Lerxst® has greater immediacy, sustain and grip."

Mojotone--in direct partnership with Alex Lifeson--will produce the all hand-wired Lerxst® Omega amp
($2,995) and matching Celestion G-12M loaded Tall 4x12 speaker cabinet ($1550). The amp and cabinet
will be available via the lerxstamps.com website immediately.
