  • Marshall experts..info on a cab needed.

    I have what I THINK is a late 70's 1960A that some d*ck head stripped the tolex off of, and painted the whole thing black. (including the large check grille cloth )

    The handles have the Marshall script at the top of them.

    What years had the Marshall script on the handles?

    Trying to decide if I need to swap the handles out on it before I sell it. A buddy of mine's sold handles before & got crazy money for them.

    (and if someone wants it, it's for sale, but shipping on an empty 4x12 is usually around $100)

        In 1990 they switched to a stereo jack for the Jcm900's.

          Late 70's Marshall cabs should have Blackback Rola Celestions and the speakers will have date codes on the basket & cones.

            1971 and before (basketweave cloth) had metal handles, which are worth more $$.

            After that they had checkerboard cloth.

            Late 70's would be either small check or black (US got black first for many years).

              Wouldn't they maybe have cream/green backs also? I've heard it's sort of a mishmash of colour-backs between 71 and onwards.

                Greenbacks, then cream in the mid-70's, then blackbacks by 75/76.

                  nevermind the fact that the OP mentioned the cab is unloaded.


                  Of course, CharvelDumb just saw Marshall cab and needed to post pics.

                    Large check would put it around '72-'75' if it's a US cab. Plastic handles started around '72 or so.

                    US market went to black cloth around 75/76.

                      I didn't see it was empty? Ricky is jelly.

                        He says he will ship an empty cab( he may have the speakers tho). I have a '73 cab with greybacks and its got the checks and the script handles if that helps??! Need more info....

                          I think Ive figured it out. It has large check cloth, script handles & the hole for the jack is the small older style one. Im betting its a 75-up. Im not ure what year they went to large check.

                          I got it on a trade & it was empty. Got a guy wanting to trade me an empty jcm800 1960A for it. (his still has tolex, corners, etc on it. ) I dont wanna keep it. Just use it as something to trade, or sell it.
