    I'm almost certain they would be 12-75's right?

    I found a 1960A 412 circa 87-88 (acording to the seller) for cheapy cheapy nearby. The owner bought it used in 1989, but said it was practicaly mint when he got it.

    Worst case scenario it has the original 75's, best case scenario it's an earlier piece with 65's :AOK

    BTW I'm getting the cab for $220usd with minor battle scars. I can't talk the guy into removing the back cover to check for sure -he seems pretty honest but not really tech savy and doesn't want to open it up (I don't think he has a drill and the idea of taking out 40+ screws by hand isn't to apealing).

    I'm picking it up in person, so maybe I'll take along my cordless and check it out then. I have lot's of speakers laying around that need a home -I doubt I could find an empty one for that price.

    My pop has an original JCM 800 1960A from '87 and it's loaded with 65's. Hope that helps somewhat.

    Now that's what I'd love to see! I got my fingers crossed! Next week I can get away to pick it up.

    Unscrew one of the handles and stick a digi cam inside, take a pic, if you can't see the backs of the speakers change the angle and try again.

    Look at the wattage rating on the back of the cab. If it is 300 watts, then it's T75's, 260 watts would be G12 65's.
