Marshall amp serial numbers dating amps sex dating in limavady county londonderry
Subtract one from the other and I'll have a rough-cut figure for how many were made. PRII owners were kind enough to start sending their serial numbers in.
I was puzzled to see how some of them were separated by over 100,000.
Could Fender make so many PRIIs, considering they were making the other 13 amp types in the range at the same time?
Then Soren in Denmark started showing serial numbers on his excellent Super Champ website (which is no longer on the web) - some of those numbers fell in between some of 'my' PRII numbers.
While it's anyone's guess how many of those 5500 were Champ II and how many were Bassman 20, they seem to come up on e Bay equally often. People keep on referring to this 'fewer than 500' thing, especially when they're trying to sell one as 'rare', but I'm still waiting for anyone to point back to the original 'fact' of the matter!
In addition Greg Gagliano sent me the Rivera-era-relevant numbers from his huge research info, for which, along with his friendly encouragement over several years, I thank him.
I run a couple of websites making the schematics for these amps easily accessible.
As people download them, I'm hoping they'll respond to my request that they send me their amp's serial number for this project, and many do.
Advertisers and politicians make decisions based on smaller percentages!
I'm guessing amp-owners like to know when their amp was made, if it's old-ish.
