    As per my other post looking for gold piping, I'm having a JTM45 cabinet built to '64 black/white front style. Does anyone have the cabinet dimensions please? Also, the corner radius seems to be less (sharper) than later ones? what is that tighter radius please? Thank you.

    I built a 1964 Replica a few years ago and Ray Domzalski built the head shell and knew
    exactly how to do it with the front gold facia and smooth tolex ,radius etc...
    Someone from another forum saw my amp and contacted me to know who did the head box and after I gave him Ray's info ,......he had him build an early 63 offset shell Replica and it was perfect also.
    It took a while to find everything but it was and amazing sounding amp and looked period correct or close. I had the white front and back face plate and also tried it with gold ,.think I loved both .
    You might want to contact him but I don't have his contact info anymore.

    Hope this helps !...Good luck !

    The dimensions according to the official Marshall 64-65 catalog are

    height 9 inches
    depth 8 1/4 inches
    width 26 inches

    However these were soft tooled back the and vary quite a bit from todays standard, especially the depth which often are found a bit deeper. The boxes appear to have often been made for specific chassis and the chassis varied too. Depth of chassis were all around 7 inches...

    Also piping grooves vary during the early years as well as logo placements.
