    I'm trying to get an idea of what my Marshall 1960 Vintage series A cab might be worth, I've looked at both Reverb and Ebay, and can't seem to find anything like it currently for sale. I'm thinking of selling it to finance another piece of gear..Any and all helpful comments are appreciated.

    Those rarely go up for sale. We are talking good to excellent condition. Start selling at least $600-$700 and drop from there. A quick sale $400-$500.

    What are you referring to?

    1960AV , w/ "Marshall Vintage" label Celestion V30's? If so, search for "1960AV" / "1960BV" models for reference

    OR...

    Older 1960A with other speakers? If so, search by speaker model


    Marshall and Celestion really made the vintage cab market confusing by introducing a speaker with "Vintage" in its model name

    No, everyone else made it confusing. Marshall was the originator.

    In SoCal you will see these fairly often. Usually between $400-$500. Sometimes higher, but I bought mine for $400 and later sold it for $500. I have seen them higher from the more stingy sellers.

    NO...

    If they'd just called it "Historical 30", "Oldschool 30", or hey, here's a thought, Something-SIXTY, then this confusion would never exist

    Thanks for the replies! :D

    The cab is 80's era..With Vintage 30's. I bought it around 1990.

    It was my main cab for a long time, and sounds great! My first 4X12..I used it with a 100 watt JCM head. But I eventually went to a '73 JMP 50 watt head, and a '71 B cab, then restored a '74 A cab..All with 25 watt British Greenbacks.

    I'm pretty much on the fence about selling it, I'm hoping to eventually score an early 70's 100 watt JMP and figure it would be a good alternative cab for a 100 watter. But I seldom use it anymore, and it does take up a bit of room..:rolleyes:

    When it comes to the vintage designation, I tend to get confused myself..For me personally, "vintage" means either Plexis, or the point-to-wired JMP's from the early '70's.

    Try putting it up for sale for $600 and take the first $500 offer. It's hard to say with no pics. It depends on if it's falling apart or mint.

    Not mint, but in excellent condition. $500 is around what I was thinking.

    If you look at the panel where the jacks are on the rear it should have a model. It would be "1960av" or similar. Then check used.guitarcenter.com or reverb.com and that will give you a ballpark but, I agree with the above, $500 should be about right.

    Retailers already call '80s products "vintage".

    So you could call it a " vintage Marshall Vintage"...

    Around here, you'll more likely find a 1875 $5 gold piece laying on a sidewalk as to find anything other than a standard 1960A or B, with GT-75s.
