Marshall logo and tolex history

Post by jnew » Tue Feb 05, 2019 2:19 pm

Whaddup boys? Have a couple late 60's Marshalls I'm working on and trying to figure out if logos have been replaced and when white tolex actually came into play. Anyone have info on this? :rock:

68 Super Lead. It has white tolex but it is obvious that it has been re covered. I don't think any amps came in white. I've only seen Black, Purple and Red for 68's but I'm trying to confirm that.

The other amp is a 69 Super Tremolo. Early 69 I'm guessing. Power caps are underneath and OPT Trans isn't rotated 90 degrees. Oriented front to back like 67/68. It has Black Levant tolex but had a white (no gold) 6" Marshall logo. I was curious if all logos still had gold in 69.

Mr. New...I'll take a look at my 69 Super Bass later this week. Currently it's buried behind a bunch of cabs, covers and speaker boxes. But I've got a client coming for a demo on Friday so I'll check it out when we move stuff around in the shop. Best I can do right now, sir!

I changed phones awhile back. I did see it today moving cabs around for a demo. The 69 SB has the white 6" Marshall logo. It's not gold.

So it looks like the white logo's started in 69. Anyone else have a different experience? :what:

1969 sounds accurate from all that I've seen. Same year that 9" logos appeared at some point on cabs (as can be seen at Woodstock in August of that year).
