    No idea what that is, but it's only a few months to wait until Nov 5th.

    Many construction features that are not typical for Marshall

    So I guess it’s not a Marshall

    I've seen a 1960TV cabinet in person. That one varies from its specs in several ways. Start with it being too tall. Plus, the grill cloth is wrong, the speakers are wrong, and beyond that I'm not sure but I have no reason to believe that is an authentic Marshall 1960TV.

    The TV usually came with Greenback reissues.

    And it looks like this:

    Not a match!

    lots of red flags in the ad...

    claims original speakers say 1968, but speakers are "broken". Speakers included are from "late '80s"?

    Made of "maple" wood?

    "glitter" grillcloth?

    "pre-serial" so no nameplate, etc.

    Sounds like BS to me, & I'm no expert...

    Looks like a home made cab to me.

    The tolex is similar to the very early Laney stuff fwiw

    the handles are worth a fair bit as they are the early thin edge marshall spec ones, that’s probably where the seller got the date from!

    Definitely G21L-35's in that Gitarrenbox. I had those, and yes they are as were used in the first Valvestates. Quite good, but for a cheap speaker, since as it says, the original ones were 'kaputt'. The cab looks like its been a project.

    I was just looking at the ad again, as I had the tab still open. There's so much wrong w/ that...

    2 pieces of wood, per side?

    this is probably the bottom panel, looks like 2 pieces also?

    handle cut, looks like crooked hand cuts w/ a jigsaw. Not cut to fit handle & long nuts/bolts?

    & those Homa casters? :)...

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    Might be made by Marshall Smith or Jones, but not Marshall Amplification. :nono: :noplease:

    Sorry but both Brian and I have concluded it is not a Marshall made cabinet. So no its no Marshall, home made probably...
