    Finished the restoration of this beast! Real metal machine with its philip yellow caps! Its feels as if its on full tilt with the volume on 1 and then the gain goes on to 11!

    Nice work! My 71 is more or less the same config but with mustards. With some high output pickups and a strong right hand you can do Kill em All without pedals! Love this era!

    Looks good
    The yellow chicklet caps are supposed to have more bite, is that the case? Odd to see both V1 couplers at 0.022uF.
    Are the pi output couplers original? If so what are they. Never seen those before.

    I can’t tell if the joints are touched- what do you think?
    The way the gain kicks in early sounds pretty typical. I’ve had 100w and 50w this era but not with all those caps.

    I have a 72, 1986. Came without transformers but had a lot of rat poop and dead bugs. I turned it into a 1987, it's a proper beast now. :cheers:

    I think they are original look the same...

    An other thing... When did marshall stamp both the steel chassis and the all backpanel with the serial number?

    Sorry I cannot see the chassis top lip stamps on those two (do I need new glasses?)

    they are located more to the right than on mine on. On the artiste model look just above the inputs to the right.
