    Certainly is, it doesn't even need the Marshall badge really.

    So, an estimation for how high it's gonna go? 3k? 5k? more?

    It could go for a lot. While it has the cosmetics associated with the Beano amp it appears to be a late '67 or even very early '68.

    I think the most important part is it has a semi solid history and it's been nowhere near a dealer ( or at least recently ). Hope it goes to a genuine buyer.

    Couldn't agree more. Let it go to the next generation of player.

    But realistically, can a player even afford this amp? It seems more like a collector piece rathers than a players amp

    We won't know now that it has been pulled. Looking at the canceled bids someone had a £3,156.98 bid.

    He listed it at 750$, what was this guy thinking? He probably got approached by a dealer... :)

    I recently did manage to get a nice item over the dealers, but you wouldn't believe the spin these dealer/fanatics have, after talking to owners lol.

    Pretty sure that eBay seller is someone I had a problem with years ago over a damaged in transit pre rola speaker. I know it was Tony something goofy like that sellers handle, and that looked familiar. eBay dispute, PayPal dispute, he lost them all, finally he had to pay to ship it back, and he expected me to pay his customs duties for a defective speaker, before he'd accept delivery. PayPal told him he was nuts, and finally refunded my money...2 months, and tons of BS later.

    If it's the same guy, whoever is dealing with him better show up in person to collect and pay for that amp.

    I don't think there's any relation to EC. He's using EC as a ploy to get more money.

    I believe it's the same model? (that Clapton used). That's like me selling a '71 Super Lead & saying it's a Jimmy Page amp. I believe it's the same model he used in the Song Remains the Same movie. I'll include a picture of Jimmy to make you think it has relation to him...

    I have a white Fender Strat, I think it was the same kind used by Hendrix...

    probably why he was forced to cancel the sale.

    I mean it reads well, it's not just been bought etc, if I was an interested party then the next step would be to start a conversation with the owner, if this came to a conclusion where you bought the amp a viewing/pickup would be a my next step.

    I'm guessing that he got an offer off e-bay that made him think that he could forgo the ebay fees. He would certainly get a better price if he let the auction run on ebay but I'm guessing that is the calculation he made?
    If you know you have something that is of value why not start the bidding low, if the interest is there it is the sniping programmes that settle the final price?

    Every jack-wagon that has a 1970's Ludwig drum kit for sale has to put BONHAM in the pitch...Even tho the kick isn't a 26, the color/finish is one he was NEVER seen playing, the configuration is different, and the year is wrong. Anything to get people to click on the listing.

    one of my favorites is the "lawsuit" guitar moniker... :facepalm:

    I used to see a lot of MG100 sales, that, their off the rack, mass produced amp is somehow special & rare, so it's worth 3 x's the price of a new one...

    I think using the "lost/broken" option waived the payment of further ebay fees. The no longer for sale option will get you charged a fee based on 1600 pounds in this case.

    On Nick's point about low starting prices I think sometimes that method increases the "fervor" and excitement, leading to a potential bidding frenzy.

    As far as the hyperbole in the description anyone knowledgeable would see through the BS. All that matters is what is original or not with photos to back it up which there weren't many on this one. Lack of photos is the primary way off Ebay deals start off.
