    Saw this on ebay, and thought I would post on here in case anyone is looking for parts for a resto (imagine they don't come up too often).

    The Music Locker is parting out an amp which presumably was either a 45/100 with EL34s, or a 100W "black flag" JTM.

    There's just over a day left on the following auctions:
    - 1203-80 PT
    - 1202-19 OT
    - 352-114 choke

    They're also selling the head shell here (I assume it is from the same amp).

    I saw that too, I had hoped to snipe but doubt that will work. Looking at the other parts (and headshell front panel cutaway) it was a 67/68 Super PA originally.
    Ideally I want the choke for a resto, but..................

    No, it is an open market, people will bid what they want. I've got some nice stuff that I should list (RS transformers etc) that could cover silly prices on resto stuff.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the silly prices start on the new stuff soon. I'm about 8 weeks into a projected 12-week wait for a Marstran JTM 45/100 set - I suspect Heyboer is the bottleneck.

    Just wow!
    I bid £150 thinking that is a lot but will not snag it but £460GBP for the choke was very high, 400 odd for the OT and over 600 for the PT were fair IMO for rare parts I went 280 on the head cab and wished I'd gone higher on that (I need a head cab for my 71 SL).

    Yes, absolutely crazy!! Particularly for the choke. Same top bidder for all items. I wonder if they're based in Doncaster? :hmm:

    The head cab was definitely the best deal. A decent build costs almost that much. The logo was a repro though, no?
