Up for sale is a 1973 Marshall 1960 B bass lead cabinet. Loaded with a set of 25 watt G12M T1221 Rola Celestion "Greyback" Greenback speakers with 75hz Pulsonic 102/14 and 3 cone codes. Missing one plastic cap. Grill cloth, handles and tolex are all original. Tolex has some mild normal wear and tear. Mainly on the back edge and bottom.  Black plastic corner pieces were replaced with new ones, as well as the screws holding them in. They are new but look almost exactly as original. The back screws and finishing washers are also new stainless replacements. Rolls nicely on new production genuine Marshall casters. Grill cloth has a few tiny snags and one rip by the logo. This is above average players grade! The magic is in the speakers!! All 4 speakers are an original set which date to 1973. I've taken a photo of every date code, and cone stamp. These are all original Pulsonic cones, which makes them extremely collectible and the sound is simply impossible to get with modern greenbacks...what are Pulsonic cones?? From Bygone tones: "The pulsonic cones first appear around mid 1962, most notably on the T530 “vox blue“. They are easily the most sought after cones by guitarists because they have a superior quality to their tone that cannot be found in any other speaker cone. Their slightly softer and more ‘fluid’ sound is particularly popular with blues and classic rock guitarists. Pulsonic cones are highly collectable due to their association with the legendary guitar players of the period such as Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles, and their use in the old 60’s Marshall and Vox amplifiers. Legend has it that a fire at the Pulsonic factory in late 73 destroyed the magic formula for making those sweet sounding cones. No one has successfully managed to replicate them, though several boutique brands have tried, as well as Celestion themselves with their Heritage greenback range." The speakers in this cab have no tears, holes or issues whatsoever, see photos!! No cone cry, buzzing or weird noises. The wiring harness and all the speaker solders are original. This is the real deal, one of the last of the best years of Marshall cabinets. In players grade condition. Please ask any questions you may have, more pictures can be provided. I am negotiable but please understand these are rare and will only go up in value as they have recently. I've sold these cabinets in better cosmetic shape for MUCH more. Shipping will be VERY expensive due to weight, size and value. Local pickup is strongly recommended.
