Need money for something else. Price drop. $1,699 shipped and PayPaled. This amp needs nothing and is ready to go!

Late '83 / early '84 JCM 800 2203 100 watt head. This is the original vertical input model. I've owned just about every boutique amp out there, and I'd take this amp over nearly all of them. Just a fantastic sounding, legendary rock amp.

Recently gone through by a pro tech and retubed/biased. A couple of knobs are starting to split, but otherwise the amp is in very good shape. All original. No mods. Check out the pics for yourself. $1,699 shipped and PayPaled. Will consider trades for another amp (head or combo). Preferably something in the Marshall camp, and preferably something that nets me some cash. I'll listen to anything though.

That's a beauty of an example of the best JCM 800!

Thanks. Wouldn't be selling/trading it if I didn't need the cash. It sounds soooooo good. Not harsh at all. Even with low output PAFs.

Bump. Will consider reasonable offers or trades for other amps.

Would you consider trading for a rare-ish Ibanez guitar? It's an Ibanez 7 string, multi scale (fanned fret) with EMG 808s, the ashwood version. Plays great and sounds killer, I just don't have a use for it and i've really been looking for an 800 for the longest time.

Appreciate the offer, Deftones1998, but 7 stringers are not my thing.
