Here is a later 1968. Wanted to get everyones thoughts on it! I'm planning on picking this one up so I'd appreciate any thoughts! Please and thank you!
Those are all correct. Good idea on paralleling the output selector wires. The grey marcon caps were associated with late 68.Best guess, indications of early 69.
What are all the date codes on all three Mullard caps? I see C3N on one. Other two?
Head's serial number?
That insulation paint looks darker Red than usual, but?
Top side images? Transformers, choke..
The OP contacted me via private message and I gave him my input. Anyhow, I'm thinking mid February 1969 based on the green HUNTS signal caps in combination with the white colored link wires. From what I've seen, Marshall started to have an issue with acquiring hookup wire in the colors they normally used around the middle of February 1969. So, as work stations ran dry of certain colors they substituted new colors to take their place. This is why you see amps from the beginning of March 1969 with blue & red heater wire instead of the normal black & red. In addition, this is why you see the use of the violet colored link wires replacing the normal pink wires in amps built around mid March 1969. With the introduction of the violet wires, the assemblers switched the Treble pot feed wire & the NFB wire; both which were normally violet, to white to curb wiring mistakes.
