    OK sorry, it is late, I really should go to bed.

    That amp is for sale (actually for trade)

    I have pictures, it is a 50 watt Bass head.
    I am about 99% sure this one is a 1986 model.

    Thanks for replying man, I was asking because I want to get a good marshall and was wondering if this was a good marshall.

    Does that help??

    I do not 100% understand your post...is this amp for sale or are you looking for a JCM 800 bass amp?

    As far as I know there are 2 JCM 800 bass amps (not sounting the very rare Model 2001, they were, model 1986 (50 watt) and model 1992 (100 watts)) and they are NOTHING like a 2204/2203...

    Marshall JCM 800 HELP??

    OK looking to get this:
    Marshall JCM 800 bass series 50 watt head.
    Just like the 2204 50 watt head but designed with and active eq for bass.
    Vertical input JCM800 series head!
    Serial # says it's from 81. Trades for guitars or ?


    I just don't know much about them, will they work for guitar, the guy says they will, do they have master volume if not can they have master volume?

    I really want a good marshall amp!

    Thanks for any and all help!!
Working...
