Which grille cloth does it have, small check or black? Small check will again be worth more.

Here's one on Reverb with small check cloth and blackback Celestions that is listed for $1400. I happen to know the seller (total coincidence, it was the first Google search result I clicked on...) and I know he prices stuff, uh, optimistically.

On the downside it sounds like yours is in a bit rougher condition. On the upside you have a case for it.

If it has the small check grille cloth, I'd say your cab with the road case is worth around $1000, give or take.

And here's the thing. The cabinet has the Fingers Custom Shop mic port modification so you can close mic the speaker with an SM57 or 58 mic. Totally custom!! :)

Let the Marshall 1/2 stack go :cry: ...as is no tube replacement etc. The guy loves it and even had the 6550's replaced with EL-34's.

I'm just now seeing this. Originally I would have to concur with Don and say that it's a pretty even trade, but seeing the cab has 25W Blackback's and possibly Jim Marshall's sig inside, it might be worth hanging onto or selling outright. Not sure how much more it would be worth, but it would definitely be worth a little more. I've got a pic somewhere of a cab at a local shop that has a genuine (and documented) Jim Marshall signature from the late 80s. I'll find it and post it up for comparison.
