You have to watch with this stuff. I don’t want to name names but one of the instrument dealers that make lots of vids ,as I have noticed it often with them. As well as other dealers that have a lot of internet content. Funny thing they some do have legit stuff sometimes .
There are reasons the main guys on here do a service to unsuspecting Marshall heads. It’s a great thing. Posting info and seeing this stuff . I missed that cab with the top plastic parts covered up and removed .I knew it just was not right though. Not really looking to hard for stuff and so I try not to look very closely lately.
I sometimes think There is a reason some of those people acquired or have so much wealth sometimes. There customers don’t seem to care or notice which kinda nuts. It can happen to folks ,so I feel bad for the ones that don’t know Sometimes. What gets me is issues with the stuff undisclosed also.
Not only Marshalls ,but guitars . I see now people selling as a example like Bassman tweeds that everything is retolex,grilled,reconed ,rewound ,you name it. Some are like 10% original there in some form . They always want a fortune for it too.
with the seller in the OP, you have to be wilfully ripping people off if your moving that amount of fake / lashed up stuff, I can excuse one person not knowing and then correcting once they get told, but this isn’t really any different from breaking into someone’s house and taking a few grand.
