First of all I hope everyone here is going well in those troubled times; let's stick together & be positive, we'll go through it.

That being said, I've just bumped into this ad for what looks like a nice '68 2x12 Bluesbreaker and thought I would share it here:

What do you think? Btw anyone having experience with that seller from the UK?

Cheers :salude

I’m not a Marshall expert by a long way, but shouldn’t a ‘68 have the earlier type mains and impedance selectors? Also the one closeup shot of the plexi panel looks way nicer than the rest of the amp.

F-hole would know.

Thanks John & guys for the input; wasn't really looking for one of those and it looks it didn't last long anyway.
The seller looks to have nice stuff.

Those Marshall PA columns are worth having. $400 shipping to the US makes me swallow hard.

I would be very suspicious of any purchase in the market this amp is located , in the past recent months I have witnessed incorrectly deceptively badged items for sale in this market place . I will also add the US market is loaded with incorrectly badged items the market is loaded with land mines. Be cautious!!!!!

@AA00475Bassman, by "marketplace" are you referring to this particular seller or the market of those old amps in general?

@corpse, yes those PA open back 2x12 colums are great, I have the Park blue basketweave slant version and I find them to be a great alternative to the more classic closed back cabs.
