1983 Marshall JCM800 Lead Series 1960A slant 4x12 260 watt 16ohm cabinet with original Celestion G12-65 speakers and original casters. 

This is a great sounding cab in solid good but played condition, with original matched quad of January 1983 date-stamped G12-65s. Original cones, and they sound great, with no issues. This cab would have been one the last run of JCM800 cabs with 65's in them before Celestion made the mistake of replacing the 65's with the far inferior G12M-70 later in 1983. This cab sounds beautiful - full, punchy and warm, with no sizzle often found in newer cabs. There's a reason these original 65's are highly sought after these days -- they rule, and that's why they now command a premium price. Well worth it if you ask me. The tone is unreal - like a greenback but less compressed, and without the wattage concerns. These JCM800 cabs are *exactly* the same build construction as the late-70's JMP cabs with small check grill -- the grill is the only difference. 

Original grill is in *very* good condition, with a very small spot of minor fraying toward the top (you won't notice until you look hard), and a little dusty (guessing a vacuum with a gentle brush would take care of it), but no rips or tears whatsoever, and the logo is perfect. The tolex has some dings, a couple rips and normal wear and tear, but nothing terrible - the most notable is on the left side behind the handle where the tolex rip and some knucklehead put duct tape over it, which has since been removed but the noticeable residue remains. Still has the original fully-functioning castors. Solid stuff.

I purchased this cab years ago from the original owner - the speakers are broken in but not remotely abused. I would love to keep it but need to thin the cabinet herd, so I'm listing a few cabs and letting the chips fall where they may, and I'll keep what doesn't sell.

** Chicago area pick-up or meet-up greatly preferred. Will travel within a 3 hour drive, with gas money considerations. I really don't want to ship it, but if you **have to have it shipped** we can talk... (Lower 48 ONLY) but it will be costly, of course. The last 4x12 I shipped ran *well* over $200 to ship to the east coast, just for reference. I'd rather drive than ship it. Thanks! **
