    they crossover...basketweave and checkercabs...I think the checkers started appearing in late 70 early 71 and the basketweaves discontinued shortly therebouts...depending on material available at the Marshall cab factory I guess...

    basketweave/S&P were 65 and later...I believe.

    History of Marshall book by Mike Doyle has most of that. I think it's $24.95, plus you get a bunch of other good info.

    "Marshall History" book by Doyle. It's not 100% accurate, but it has a lot of good info with good illustrations. I would call it the vintage Marshall bible.

    You know, I heard there was a book out there something like History of Marshall, or Marshall history. I believe it was written by a guy named Doyle - about 25 bucks I believe.

    :D
