Hi
I'm new to this forum & allthough I do own a couple of vintage Marshalls that I have had for years I am actually quite a novice when it comes to these things!
I have a pre june 1968 JMP50 & according to the guy I go to for my amp repairs its all original apart from one of the el34 valve sockets, The standbye switch & the red light indicator.
My tech has just replaced 3 of the amps capacitors & now the amp does run with alot less noise, He has given me the originals in a box & told me to keep them as part of the amps history/originality. It also has parts of the original logo broken off, I have the broken parts in a bag (somewhere) so in a way I do have the original logo!

My real question is would buying the above logo actually increase the value of my amp to the point of what the seller is asking for it??

As appetite4distortion says about buying a 70's chequeboard 4x12 for that kind of money a while ago I to actually paid the same amount for an all original pretty good condition 1968 basketweave 4x12 about 3 years ago from a one time well known person on this forum!

Has the world of vintage Marshalls gone mad or am I missing something?

One in rougher shape just sold on ebay a couple of weeks ago. That one went for $600 or so. Does it increase the value of a plexi by $600+, who knows? I am just as happy with a $50 Music Ground repro.

+1 :thumbsup: The only Good thing about MG was those logos do look the business and for a decent price.

MG haven't registered on Italian Ebay now have they ?? :laff:

I guess if a missing logo or wrong logo is the only thing lacking in an otherwise pristine head, bottom or combo a clean original with all the pins intact would add several hundred dollars of value or maybe more on a JTM45 level unit. I've had better luck scoring original logos attached to things. A couple of years ago I got a mint '69 empty head box with equally intact logo for $450. I tried on the last two that have recently come but have been beaten out at the 400 level. Last year one came up for $200 BIN and I snagged it quickly only to have the seller back out because USPS "ran over" the package. Then there was a bag of broken logos on ebay for a few quid that I took a chance on which yielded 3 complete plus a 4th minus the lls. I'm about eight short in my collection, but I can't rationalize 775, so I'll keep scavenging.

I know where he has bought that logo too. I was kicking myself for missing it. It was on a near mint 2x10 cab on UK ebay a couple of months back. the pic of it on the grill cloth is from the original listing.

Those logos are rare in any condition. A mint one is worth a few hundred quid now. Supply & demand. Lots of demand, hardly any out there.

Does anyone have a link to the MG logos on ePay? I tried searching but couldn't find them.
