Not intending to make any offer, but it's cool to see sometimes some really good non-scam stuff.

lol - I too recall to my mind auctions in the past for a highly priced kitchen marshall, was it the same guy? cannot remember all these detailed pictures/info. He claims previous listings were scams with robbed pictures..BS?

What I do know is that internally it is virtually identical to my 65 JTM45 although mine is lead spec (4/8 and 16ohm). It reassures me about the brown wire used for the heaters and the input socket earth points.
Odd things are the later 50w PT that has been fitted to it (1202-118) and mine has output selector on the side of the OT (the hole ob the back of mine is the mains selector - this is missing one!
The extra holes for the front panel are a clue too.

Even if correct not worth the asking price and who does own it? :?:
All bleeding stops.......eventually.

Oh yes, I agree, probably it will never sell anywhere near that price (if it ever sells). Maybe one third of that?
I think this is purely collector stuff and you pay only for the rarity, as any JTM of the era should deliver the same, only with a different logo but almost with one "zero" less in the asking price :wink: ..and still I don'think any collector wants to push this kind of vintage Fender / Gibson money in any Marshall.
Hendrix amp, maybe, or dumble, or trainwreck? or very early offset logo first year? I have no idea..
All in all, still a cool and very rare amp. Of course assuming it's serious listing and not another scam!

Judging by the mess around the mains tranny frame and filter cap area, there has been a serious tranny meltdown or cap explosion.
