MARSHALL 50TH ANNIVERSARY 1962 BLUESBREAKER AMPLIFIER



 



BRAND NEW and still in its’ factory packaging a Marshall 50th Anniversary 1962 Blues Breaker amplifier.   This IS NOT the reissue amplifier, this is the 50th anniversary version of which only 100 were made (50 of which were sold with an anniversary Gibson Les Paul guitar) and 50 were sold stand alone.  This amplifier has never been removed from the factory packaging and has never been used.  It is an exact replica of the original 1962 Blues Breaker amp as used by Eric Clapton.



 



Marshall 1962LE, The Consummate British Blues Combo



According to the late, great Jim Marshall, this amp was first designed following a conversation with a young English guitarist (Eric Clapton) who used to practice in Jim's music shop and later went on to international stardom. "He was one of the first guitarists to ask me for a combo version of the JYM45," Jim recollected, years later. "He wanted something that'd be easy for him to get in and out of the boot [trunk] of his car, you see. That's how the 1962 came about."
