Hi guys, I have a musician friend who has a 1977 100 watt Marshall JMP for sale with no mods. It has a few tears but it overall in excellent condition. He told me it was made for the Japanese market as there is a voltage switch I think he said on the front of the amp. Anyways, I played it last night last set with my band and really thought it sounded great. I don't want to lowball him, but also don't want to pay too high a price. What do you think would be a reasonable offer? Thanks!

You mean a third rocker switch on the front? If so, those were made for the Canadian market.

Any pics?

Master Vol, right?
Start by offering him $1000.00
I wouldn't pay more than $1200.00

I personally would not call a few tears in the tolex "excellent" condition. There are plenty out there without messed up tolex. (Naturally, these few tears may be extremely minor.) In any case, I'd start looking at similar years with no tears, and use those as a base price, then subtract for damage.

Original transformers/caps/other?

Sorry, I should have said excellent working condition. I didn't look inside, but he said all original. I will have to check that out. He told me Japanese market, but must be Canadian as there is the third switch on front.

Which tubes does it have it? US-versions had 6550's which sound different than EL-34's. Not better or worse, just different.

Plus 6550's are going to cost you much more to replace when that time comes. I had one back in the '90's. I paid $150 for it.

$1000 to $1200
I bought my unmolested JMP 2204 a year ago for $900. No tears in the tolex on mine.
