    I realized that the badly butchered 1970 Superlead I've been restoring came with five pointer style knobs on it. The sixth has no pointer. I know that these knobs are somewhat sought after and bring a pretty decent price, for a knob.

    But I don't know what years and models they would be appropriate for.


    I'm referring to the knob style that looks like your regular brown plastic, gold or silver capped Marshall knob, but with a small pointer at the base of the knob.

    IDK the real timeline, but my 1980 2203 had them and my White Anni 4210 had them, but my 5010 from 1986 and 1976 2203 does not have them.

    I think it was late 70's and early 80's only.

    that said, if you scour the web, you can find some of the little solid state practice amp's that have them, for cheap sometimes...

    The ones in the classifieds look off to me.. don't know but the silver caps on my pointers knobs from 81 attach different. No way worth that kind of $$

    yeah, anyone can "ask" whatever they want, but getting that is another story...

    Speaking of... Locally, I just saw a ss combo going for $200, that has 10 of those pointers attached...
