  • New cab day......warning mojo overload

    This cab just oozes mojo goodness. Best I can tell it is a 1972. hand signed in pencil by Jim Marshall and someone else. Sounds super sweet and looks even better

        Definitely not stock speakers then.

        How are you dating it to '72, and what does the back panel look like?

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

            Back panel is partical board. I tried to follow this chart along with the chart on celsstions website for dating speakers. But I may have gotten thr date code wrong on the speakers apparently. I was seeing the first of the code on the speaker as EM. But I see now that could also go as dec 1995
            But I am also taking all this into account of the seller saying it was an early 70s cab. but I'm not sure how he knew either.

              I was asking for a picture of the back panel because the location of the jack and badge (if any) would offer further clues regarding when the cab was built.

                I'll have to take one. Jack is located at the bottom and there is no badge anywhere.

                    That back panel is definitely a 70s cab and not a later reissue. It also has a 9" logo and large checkerboard, which could be as early as mid/late '72 or as late as early/mid '76. Unfortunately without the original speakers it may not be possible to narrow it down further.

                    Edit: I have a similar cab, but the jack panel, grillcloth, and logo have all been replaced. The speakers are original G12Hs and the other specs date it to either '77 or '78. I don't remember the date codes on the speakers; one of these years I'll have to open it and look again. Either way it sounds amazing, I just wish it wasn't so f***ing heavy!

                      Awesome man. Very informative. Thank you. I've never been a fan of these speakers and I'd like to load it with v30's.

                        Cool, it’s great to see a nice, well used old Marshall... looks great!

                        I bought my son an older angled 4 x 12 unloaded a few years ago and I think that was the same era. I put 2 old G30H’s and 2 old G65’s I bought off UK blues-rock man Aynsley Lister.... as already stated great but Heavy as [email protected]&.

                        Enjoy yours!
