    Interesting......
    link to marshall website

    Marshall are releasing a Ltd edition JTM45-100 full stack to commemorate the 40th anniversary of its first release. I can't seem to link pics from the website, but it looks sweet. It is different from the 1959 because it uses kt66 valves along with a few other electronic changes.

    The two 4x12s have celestion t652 alnico speakers and the top angeld cab is semi open back to recreate what the 8x12s were originally like.

    here is a mini pic:

    Personally I think it looks GREAT! :cool:

    Very cool. Those have two output transformers like the earliest version of the JTM45/100 only Wallace amps makes one like that I think. The pictures of the amps guts are outstanding no boutique manufacture does a better neater job in my opinion that I have seen. Of course you pay for it these aren't cheap anyway you look at it. I wish I had the money to buy a real one before these came out the price is only going to go higher.

    how would germino's monteray classic(with only on transformer) sound different then this limited edition jtm45/100(with two transformers)?

    I can faithfully say I'd love to have one of em but my best guess would be I'll never be within 200 foot of one.

    Hey dude I'm still at work. Just got through hanging two pieces of 5 inch steel pipe 50 foot in the air 100 foot long. Shaped like an S. We are finishing up right now though.

    Hey guys, there's a few of these beauties are still available down under...

    In fact, I just bought one. Being a collector, there are irresistable...

    I'll post some photos when I have it set up!

    In concept this looks great, but Marshall's QC has been all over the place
    with their MIC imports and the quality of the individual components is questionable as well.

    I'd personally put more faith in a Reinhardt or Reeves or Bad Cat

    Being a common fellow, these amps are not within my reach. Still, I'd love to have one.

    Exactly the point I'm making.

    When the money you save is not easy money and you want something
    that will last a lifetime, there are better alternatives with better components, and far better quality control and attention to details.

    It's quite sad that everything behind that famous Logo
    is made in China with near sweatshop labor and still they
    charge at much as you would pay for a much better amp built
    in the USA.

    Some observations on this thread;

    A - it's almost 3 years old.... strange that it would be brought back from the dead.

    B - FFTT, are you saying the Marshall JTM 45/100 is (was) being made in China? I highly doubt that - can you back up this claim?

    C - Everyone who says that can't find / afford one of these, check the emporium. There's been a used one offered there for a month or so, quite reasonably priced too it seems to me.

    I only have fender amps at this time but i have been thinking about one of these for a long time. I'd buy one and may do just that soon.

    That is simply not true. There is a video tour of the factory in England they make a huge number of amps there and all the HW stuff come from England.
