    If it's all original (speakers with no issues/working) minus the repro 100 logo, I'd expect your white 1970 cab to be worth somewhere in the $3500-4500 USD range.

    I sold off about 9 cabs six years ago, they weren't all original (speakers were, grill cloth changed, new wiring harnesses), but close. I had a client from Canada buy 4 of them at $3000 each. I took the money and bought a 99 Corvette. The other five I used the money to buy a 2004 Corvette.

    Since I use them to take speakers to Fedex & USPS, they became business write offs. And besides, I still have about 9-10 old cabs here, the earliest being a late 67 stack with the narrow flange metal handles, and 20w G12M paper voice coil speakers. I did sell a 69 straight and 70 slant 13 years ago to fund my wife's engagement ring....all 3.2 carats of it. I cried. The 69 sold for $5200, the 70 slant for $3500.

    At least I get to look at what I spent the money on every day. LOL

    Nice cab with an important feature found on white cabs...gold piping instead of white. This cab's castors are the push on Revos not the large 3 bolt varety most often associated with a 1970 cab. What type of script logo? So far this looks to have '69 features if the logo is small.

    It's a later logo, same size as the other white cab pictured in the thread. Thanks

    I figure small logos on the bottoms made it a little ways into 1970.

    And the burning question in my heart: "What model is that little white head?" That's a new one on me!

    Just Curious?

    Yup build quality is a step up from the usual modern fare and it IS verrrrry clean and cool-looking

    That said, if people pay five grand for em, that's still collector value money and not proportional to performance characteristics...

    A good example of its sound is the slide solo in No No No from Fireball at 1:36:

    I believe the unit pictured on Richie's stage is the even rarer Reverb-Fuzz unit.

    On a side note: that track must sound totally groovy when you're wasted... or so it seems.

    Just doesn't have the same effect sober. Pesky new year's resolutions

    In addition to that really unusual slide solo, his overall tone throughout the song is very unique, as always for Ritchie! Haven't heard that song in years!
    Thanx 4 Sharon,

    I’ve hade T1281’s with the gold label directly on magnet no cover!

    If I said $8,000 in this economy I might be saying double that or more in ten years time.

    But I’m wondering about the tools on top of the cab, because I’ve never used a needle nosed pliers to pop the backs, but I have used EM when rewiring

    Thanks, I had it up for 7k, even dipped down to $4900 with no takers. I'm just going to keep this one for now.

    As I keep saying; don't buy these things for investments. Buy them and keep then to enrich your life here and now. None of the kids today wants our old crap 25-30 years from now... :)
