Original 1974 chassis dimensions

Postby Rockinrocket » Tue 02/05/19 12:55 am

Hi all I'm looking for a document that shows original chassis dimensions so I can fold some aluminum to make a authentic replica.

Ive built 5 18 watt variations and now I simply want to recreate the legendary 18 with NOS parts in all its original glory!
Thanks :D

After folding a chassis up Id have to say the originals are not 6" from the 10 or so photos of original examples I have. I'm sure Marshall wasn't 100% consistent and some amps possibly could have had 6"

I'm pretty sure its between 5" and 5 1/2" for anyone nerdy enough to care about authenticity :lol:
