    Hi all,
    Here's some pics of an all original 1972 100w. This has been in my family's possession since puchased used in the '70's.
    The filter caps have been replaced since these pics were taken, also the original AC input cord has been changed to a 3 wire grounded plug. I still have the original cord and caps.
    I've posted this here as an example of an original, lightly used amp that I thought you guys would be interested in seeing.
    It is not for sale at this time.
    Thanks,
    bluesguy
    * The logo is not the original.

    Very, very nice. A true Marshall classic.

    And a family heirloom.

    That is gorgeous. :yesway:

    It looks like you have a 11 inch Marshall logo :scratch:
    You need to get a 6 inch Marshall logo and your amp will be perfect. :cheers:

    Hi bluesguy,
    Just one thing I have noticed is that looks like you still have the polarity switch in operation which includes the so called 'death cap' in it's circuit, or have you already removed it?

    We had a discussion here very recently about removing that cap from the circuit for safety reasons and it's highly recommended that you do so. This procedure is simple and won't devalue the amp in any way at all.

    Please read through this recent thread and maybe you'll give it some serious consideration, unless it's already been made safe via the newer power cord.

    I see that the death cap and polarity switch are still in the amp. Were the pictures taken before the power cord upgrade? If so, do you have pictures showing the wiring on the cord installation. I am wanting to change the power cord on my 70 SL and am trying to figure out what needs to stay and what needs to go. Thanks

    Hi all,
    Thanks for all the great comments. Sorry I haven't responded,till now.
    The polarity switch and death cap are still in the amp, but disconnected from the circuit.
    I will post new pics with the new caps and the new grounded power cord.
    Also the large Marshall logo has been changed to a correct size.
    Thanks,
    bluesguy
