    2203 and 1959's are different amps.

    I have a 1981 JCM800 2203 in mint condition but it's not really for sale unless I get knocked over with a ridiculous offer. Like a Bitcoin.

    Yes, as mentioned above you're looking for JCM 800 1959. Which is a 4 input non master volume amp. So...damn....loud.. be ready for the loud.

    The JCM 800 2203 is a 2 input master volume amp. Still loud, but a bit more controllable with the mv.

    I am thinking I could go for the Master Volume lol. Did they have that in 1981? I just cranked up the JTM 45 I bought and tweaked with some new capacitors. HOly Gawd! What a sound. I have done a few tweaks but man o man what a sound even from the RI. LOve it.

    So you pretty much already have the amp you're looking for, handwired pre pcb.

    1973 was the transitional year from hand wired to first version ST1 PC board. The amp could be made in either manner.
    I have a 1973 Superlead, too. Mine has the first version ST1 board. Yes it can get stupid loud.

    The Point is he basically has the amp he's looking for, unless he really needs the JCM aesthetics like the Pretenders amps.

    Yes I have the first version ST1 pcb. I was thinking I would get the 1981 JCM 2203 master volume but I see a bit of debate here about the whole 50 watt vs 100 watt thing. I guess I could do a master volume on the 1973 but i would hate to mess with it cause well it's vintage.
