I ordered a used Marshall 1960A from another store and one special request - please don't ship it, unless you open the back and verify there are 4 Celestion 75s in there - I want it to match my other cabinet. Noo problem.

...8 days go by
...arrives in OKC store
...open back
...Oopsey - different speakers inside - 30s and 75s

...trying again from a store in Fredrickberg VA.

You'd think there'd be a butt load of these cabinets - but they go fast in this town; even at 500 bucks!

I'm about three hours away but a buddy of mine usually either has a 1960a or knows someone with and 1960a for sale around 350. If you want I'll check with him. Just shoot me a message.

Thanks jr, a young guy at the VA store said he's open the back up and call me before he ships the cab out in the AM. I'll take one more chance (without a middle man this time).

geez, i'm just jealous that you guys have 1960A's out there in the $350 price range. every crazy person out here wants north of $500 for one with peeling tolex...

Lol, can you guess where $250 is now the going rate? With a housing bubble burst, the 4x12 is now a storage problem, not a guitar cabinet! lol

Ayup. Never paid more than $250 for a 1960-series cab and I never would

(I've had...god...4? 5?)

Agree with the guy up there - useless if you're not playing soccer stadiums

The VA store shipped me one this AM at 450 with tax & shipping. Then, another one surfaces here at guitar center for 450 & they called me. DANG IT! Oh well, I'll back to monitoring my tracking number and fantasizing about blowing the windows out of my music room.

I noticed Musician's Friend (guitar center kahoots) is asking 900 plus for a new one!

Yeah the new ones are ridiculous. In GA they are $350-$400. Maybe $300 on a good day. $250 can be had but it will be in tatters. GC's prices are usually a little higher than craigslist though, sometimes way higher.
I'd have jumped on the 75/30 combo but I like V30's in a cab. Not sure how the mix would sound. Sucks that the guy didn't open it like he said he would though.
