A friend of our lead guitarist brought his old amp up so we could play with it. Needless to say it sounded absolutely amazing. Hardly any noise with the gain all the way up, which surprised me. I dated it my the serial number and it's from 1974. It's not gonna be sold except maybe to a friend of his. He could never let it out of arm's reach(which I totally understand) it's just that he doesn't play anymore.

So, what I'm asking is: What is an almost mint condition, fully functioning, 1974 Marshall Plexi worth in USD?

Also, if anybody knows anything about the '82 and '86 Jcm 800 Master Model 50 watt amps that would be great too. The 82 has good cleans but lacks in crunch while the 86 has ok cleans but can really crank out the brootalz.

EDIT: I forgot to mention the plexi said "MKII super lead 100W" on the back

I'd say about $1500-$2000 roughly.

Well if it is a one channel JCM800,the vertical inputs are much better from what I hear.

The MKII Superlead means it's a non-master volume. Does this Plexi have a master? If so any other mods? That will of course take down the value...

1974 should not be a plexi panel unless whoever owned it replaced it with a plexi panel. It's probably worth around $1500 or so like Gabe said.

it's got a volume knob on the back of the plexi. dunno if that's what the master volume thing is. All I know is it sounded awesome as i didn't play through it myself.

The 86 jcm 800 has the vertical inputs and we all agree it sounds better. So ya i'd agree with that.

The Marshall 2203 and 2204 amps weren't made with vertical inputs after 1985. They switched to cheaper parts and changed the input layout to horizontal.

I have an early '80s JCM 800 if you're curious about anything.
