• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

At that price I'd be afraid to play it...

You can still buy the correct/same elephant grain tolex that Marshall used in the late 70's-onward. why not buy a JMP combo for $1000 & spend $300 on a re-tolex if you need Orange. If done correctly, no one would know. I am not condoning lash-ups, but if I NEEDED an orange JMP combo and wanted to keep the price down, I know what I would do.

Elephant levant/tolex is still made exactly the same today, as in 1977. Pre-1974 Marshall levant is no longer made & it is easy to spot the new repro stuff. Just saying:hmm
