Lovely piece of gear, legit to my ignorant eyes, five numbers from mine.
If only I had enough money.......

Is yours a 67 or 68?

Features of that one on ebay look quite like a '67 (solid board RS pots, D6 caps and single 8k2 dropper, as wel as 27k NFB resistor.

Certainly looks nice and clean. I wonder if one of those bulgins with the slightly oval flanges would cover the holes a bit better?

Definitely a '67 IMHO ....... added Bias Adjuster. My '68 has the slider type as they all did. Mine has the small blk silicon diodes on the mains trannie.
Are those EL-34 tube sockets Orig ? White ? Mine are the typical Brown and my '66 JTM-45 are Black.

Nice amp ..... just post the Black Flags. Be interesting to see what it brings.

Who won this one, instead?
C'mon, spill the beans! :laff:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1967-68-Marsh ... true&rt=nc

I offered 1799 -which really was my top at this moment- and I lost at 2 secs from end.
Received pics inside, OK trannies and decent conditions overall (save the added holes and a bit of messy wiring). Good deal whoever was!

I think you weren't so unlucky, I think the first one is way better than the one you bididded on and with a little effort...who knows???

A very decent deal. I think being that intact and from that period deserves some premium in the value.
