Hi guys!

I just bought this Major, and would like to hear your thoughts on it!

Paid 3100 usd for it

From the seller: Super clean Marshall major 200 watt. One owner amp with original dust cover. Recapped and replaced rectifier diodes. New PT from Tube Amp Doctor. This amp is stupid clean, looks like it hasn’t been out of the house. Original PT and parts swapped are present and is included if so desidered by the purchaser.

Looks to be in fantastic shape.
If you post gut shots of the circuit board, the gurus will spot any irregularities.
Don't have one, but I've heard that they are f-ing loud!

Congrats! Looks very clean on the outside. It seems that it was serviced with a new power transformer at some point. It would be nice to see more pics. Cheers, M.

Hi all, and thank you! I’ve got a couple of pics from the inside, but for some reason they would not upload.

Hi, & :welcome:to the forum...

The forum has a 1MB filesize limit. Your file must be under 1MB. Otherwise, you have to post it on an image host site & then post that here. Currently, because of scammers (not just here), we have to put all new profiles on probation, until they check out w/ a few posts & a certain amount of time here. That means that you won't be able to post links, so, best bet is to resize the image...

:cheers:

'Looks like it's never been out of the house'. Heck of a bedroom amp with a couple of 4 x12s.

Anyway it's a major. We all love it and want it desperately and think you got the bargain of a lifetime.

Anyone disagree?
That is true! And yes, I thought it was a great deal
