    It's legit.
    The only difference being that it's not small boxed.
    Because of the way Marshall built amps transition models were common, and that's what you have a transition model amp.

    Considering the packing- that's entirely the sellers fault.
    That is the basis to return the amp for a full refund. (and you should have)
    It's not the shipping company's fault and it's not yours either.
    I would have sued Paypal. IMHO Their customer service is a joke.

    I have found that many genuine 2204 from 1986 have this typo :D you can look it up on google images, I found two others quite quickly so there must be others

    Screen printing errors are not unheard of. I have seen Marshall do that a couple times.
    One time they labeled a 3 amp fuse holder "8 amps." :lol:
    I am quite sure that this amp is a real factory built assembly.

    My 86 2204 is also missing the U in products, never noticed that before.

    Tried that, they closed the case. Seller laughed and told me to sell it if I didn't like it, he'd already spent the cash on a new amp! Twat.

    Anyway, I'll get it fixed up and sold. I'll be happy to bring it back to life and move it on after a little TLC. Still sounds good, which is what counts I guess...
