100% DEFINITELY from Marshall stable! I'm the owner of the this chassis and there is NO doubt its not a clone,copy etc. Also no doubt that it was made in the 1960s. Its all original and untouched apart from the bias slider (& resistor) that I reckon was done by Marshall later in the '60s. Predates any production models,coffin logo etc-more pics posted soon-been offered 6K so far


William my boy! Good to see you here, in fact this is probably the first time I've ever seen you post on an internet forum!

How's your bum for spots?

Do I understand properly that the pictures on page 2 of this thread were pictures of the amp in question? If so there are numerous solder joints and replaced wires so the assertion that it is 100% original doesn't pass muster.

The first amp on that page is mine,the second is someone elses. All joints/wires are original other than the slider & resistor already mentioned

Exactly! I cant understand why people didnt get stick in with the bidding as the output tranny alone is worth double what I paid for the amp!!

Even if I was convinced it was a mock-up (and I'm convinced it is the real deal) I'd have happily paid nearly three times that much.
To say I'm incredibly jealous would be a lie. It's sooooo much more than that. :lol:

I would not go that far! My RS deluxe OT cost me £150. My bid of £250 or so was based on the value of an OT.

Great buy - tone report?

He's checked all the values and it matches exactly an early JTM45 he owned a few years ago, even down to Mullard diodes of the same type etc. All the caps and pots are RS.

Here's one pic follwed by a link to 14 in a gallery. All input welcome.

Blimey! I wish I could buy them for £150! The last 3 or 4 I've sold on ebay went from between £450 & £650 ($1000). This was the only reason I bought the amp!..................................

Tone report? believe it or not,I havent gotten round to firing her up other than the initial tests to make sure it works. To be honest,at this rarity level,I'm not sure it matters!

Rob, Will; Hi ya mates!! Glad to see both ya here. Course I don't get here that much these days as I'm busy playing shows with the band. Rob, I've still got that lovely Jan. 11th, `72 #1986 head. It sounds wonderful! And Will, I still have that 1964 Vox AC-30 N that we traded for. According to Jim, they didn't do the charcoal Rexine but for a few short months... And yeah Will, I've still got the `59 Selmer Futurama guitar we traded. Trying to figure a way to come over around Musikmesse time in April.
Will, that amp is sensational! I know you emailed me a number of times about it when you aquired it. Glad to see you've hung onto it. Do I still have the Right of First Refusal if you sell it...?
Cheers my friends!

Hi Don,

Glad to hear you still have that Marshall, that must have been 15 years ago now !? If you can make it over to see us sometime that would be great, you'd be welcome to stay with us, we have plenty of room.

I just noticed that an amp on the the top of the pile of JTM's on the Plexi Palace homepage has an almost identical black panel and a black badge. I think if Victor could chime in about that amp it would clear up any doubt once and for all.
