    Here are some pics of my 69 50 watt Marshall small box Plexi.
    I was moving some amps around today and thought I would shoot some pics of the ole' Marshall.
    Sure brings back some great memories. Bought it from a country picker in 77.
    He had it in the closet with the 8x10 with slip cover as well. That cabinet is long gone, I traded it for a C:70-71 4x12 slant which I still have.
    Thank God I never modded this amp. It's all original including the caps.
    If I am not mistaken, Jim Marshalls sig is on the paper tag on the chassis!
    Excuse the digital artifact(small white dot) on the cover. I need a new camera!

    I used to have the exact same amp.

    I was at an afterhours party in the mid 1980's and saw it sitting in a corner with some other music gear at this dudes house. Awesome, almost perfect condition. I knew right away what it was and starting hounding the guy to sell it to me. 2 days later, I ended up trading an early 80's JCM800 for it (the guy wanted a 100watter).

    I absolutely loved that amp, but did something stupid in 1997 and sold it for like $1100... :(

    Cool amp. I need to get working on my 76...... It's getting a plexi faceplate because the original is really hammered. Thanks for the motivation

    :AOK Color me green with envy. I had the (mis)fortune of playing through an original small box '69 recently. It almost ruined my ears for all my amps.:p
