    I went into Guitar Center today and they had literally just put this cabinet on the floor. I bought it for $475 (was marked $499). They let me take the back off to check out the speakers but I can't take it home for a month as they have a 30 day hold on used gear before it can leave the store in case it's stolen.

    I tried it for about 2 minutes to make sure it wasn't blown. Used a BF Bassman and it sounded great.

    Anyone know what year this is or what it's worth? I like B cabs vs A cabs and actually went in looking for a B cab, so this is great. I'm guessing it's late 70s but I am not an expert on these.

    I can't help with provenance or era. But I prefer B cabs as well. The A cabs either seem to add weight with no function (speakers are not angled anyway). Or they add weight and are angled, but awkwardly so I don't hear as well. Enjoy it when you get it.

    It looks mid 70's. Killer cab!

    Your speaker is upside down - you may have to return it.

    I think you got a fair deal for a nice 70's era Marshall cab.
    Which head will you be using?

    I would agree w/ late 70's, fair price, looks to be in reasonable shape, I have seen much worse cosmetics for more money.

    I spoke to some people that are more familiar with Marshall than I am. Apparently these are old Greenbacks. The cap colors sometimes changed but they're the same speakers.
