Marshall Amplification, the leader in quality guitar amplifiers for over three decades, is showing the limited edition reissue of their incredibly rare (only three were originally made) offset JTM45 halfstack (model #2255HS). The reissue is available in very limited quantities in the USA only.
The offset JTM45 halfstack consists of the offset-chassis JTM45 head and 4 x 12" offset speaker cabinet with a semi-openback design. Authentic handwired tagboard circuitry and KT66 power tubes are housed in an aluminum chassis, true to the original, which was built in 1962. Every effort has been made to preserve the pristine sound and aesthetics of these amplifiers, right down to the 12" Celestion Alnico speakers and the extremely rare rectangular metal, red block lettered Marshall "coffin" logo. The JTM45 also features the same black vinyl covering, white/gray grille cloth and white front panel as the original.
The limited run of 300 amplifiers for the U.S. market includes a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity and a handbook in a plush leather folder. Covers for both the head and cabinet are also included.
The JTM45 (2255HS) is currently available with a list price of $5000.
