    I just bought a marshall from a guy for dirt cheap ($500) which is labelled tremolo 50. Its a 2x12 combo and looks and sounds very much like a bluesbreaker. Can someone identify this amp for me and maybe give an estimate as to how much it is worth?[​IMG]?
    Here is some pics the seller provided, sorry about the quality.

    I don't have the amp yet either so won't be able to check it out at all, just wondering if anyone would know just by the pictures.

    That's the Bluesbreaker RI (model 1962). As to what they're worth, I have no idea these days, but you got a good deal as long as it's in good working order. Here's my '97 Bluesbreaker Ltd, the only difference being the cabinet.

    It's a pretty good deal, but I wouldn't say deal of the century. It looks like a RI to me.

    True enough, but that still doesn't make it the deal of a century. Had it been an original '62 ... *that* could be the deal of century for $500!
