    No Way $750 would touch either one of my 1982 2204's. They're Road Worn, Many, Many Miles on em, 100% Battle Tested Tried and True. They've also been kept in 100% PERFECT playing shape, and they're MINE !!!!! LOL

    I would pay as much for a mint JCM800, they are becoming moreso rare as the years go by.

    The prices are commensurate with any Marshall, Fender, or Vox that's over 20 yrs old.
    Hard to believe you could buy JCM 800's for $400 throughout the 90's.
    The Silvers are the one's that you should really buy. Those are gonna go to plexi prices within a couple years. I still think the Plexi 50 reissues and DSL's are the best Marshalls for the money

    I sure am hoping the trend continues!!!

    My last 2 acquisitions were a JCM800 2204 w/4x12 cab for $700.00 off the grocery store bulletin board & a HIWATT Custom 50 DR504 I traded for my UniValve.

    The prices I've seen for both are far more than I laid out...!!!

    Off topic, I know, but I'm curious: what did you end up going with?
    Sorry,

    The 1st JCM800 is the exact same amp I have, but not sure of what year, since there's no serial number listed. It's NOT a true channel switching head, as some people believe. The 'switching' mearly adds a gain stage to the output. It does have seperate volumes for each stage, but is considered a Master Volume series amp, I believe. Most connoseurs consider the original 800 to be the last good amp Marshall made. It's arguable, but I agree with them. Channel swtiching killed Marshall amps. I would get one now before they go over $1k!

    You can often get a Plexi 1987x reissue and an attenuator for less than a JCM800 now. I have had both and the Plexi RI is by far my favorite.

    JCM 800 amps have been steadily climbing in the used market for the last 2-3 years. In 2000, you could get a 100W JCM 800 head for $400. Today, that same amp sells for $700+. Whether or not these prices are inflated depends on who you ask. Considering that these are some of the last decent amps Marshall made and they're still about half the price of a new amp, I'd say they're a good deal. As far as the reissues go, they're a very average 800 for way too much money. I've played originals that sounded much better at 1/2 the price.

    The Jubilee amps have gone up in price even more than 800s have. I scored my 2555 in June 2001 for $550. If I wanted to get another one today, I'd have to pay close to double that. I've seen some very pristine examples sell for $1500.

    isnt the Reissue $1200? i guess the purist will not feel the price is too high on the originals?

    The first link is to a rarer early JCM with channel switching, so I could see why that would be higher. You guys should hold off until a little later and then sell it for a profit. Of course, some people are so attached to them, I don't think anything could pry it from their hands.

    I must agree with the overprice on some... I mean, this auction is for the very same amp I have:

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...sPageName=WDVW

    I paid almost half that and it was an '83 cleaner than this one... I'll check it out to see if it sells...

    Yeah, I don't think that they're much of a secret anymore. Gettin' too pricey, for sure.

    Yikes.. it's called the bandwagon fallacy.

    I just sold my 2204 for $620 and I bought it for $500 a couple of years ago. You might look for the jmp models of the 2204, which were like the early JCM800s.
