Get the vendor to open her up and have a look!
The white label centre vent 75's were still in the Jubilee cabs from 87 for what it's worth, but always best to check. Extremely close to G1265's....

They're such good speakers. A world apart from the T75 of today.
My 80's cab has three of these and one newer one which has had a pretty full on amateur repair job. Sounds fucking wicked.

On the subject of t75's I'll just share something.
A few months back I bought a couple of mint chinese 75's off a fella to put in my AX quad with a couple of greenbacks. I put them in the cab wired to 16 ohms and had a jam. Sounded horrible. No definition, harsh and flat as hell. I was gutted.
Contemplated on-selling them but did a bit of research and tried something. I put them in an old marshall 212 hooked them up to the home stereo, got the worst EDM playlist I could find on Spotify, eq'd more bass into the sound, turned it up fairly loud with the cab against the floor and let it run. Probably about 16 to 20 hours all up on and off over the last 3 days while I wasn't inside.
Put them back in the quad with the Greenbacks, turned the amp on, fingers crossed.. Heavenly! Actually I would say its the best that cab has ever sounded and I've put quite a few speaker combinations through that thing!
So I guess even Chinese Celestions can sound great once broken in. I guess it will sound even better over time.

Yeah pays to be patient with new speakers. My alnico Jensens I fitted to the Twin were disappointing but usable for several months, sounds great now.

Giving this one a bump - still available - someone got $3,000 for an '800 1959 head the other day - this has to be value at the current price.....

Its great value but cash poor, actually everything poor.

I think that's my old amp, did you get it around early mid 2000's? If it is my old one this is the second old Marshall I used to own that has popped up on here recently, I wonder if my old Slash sig stack is going to turn up next. I need to change my name to Voxrocks since I swapped the Marshalls out for a Two Rock.

Bloomfield Drive I've had 5 seperate new honeymoon periods with it, it just keeps getting better and better, I think it needs a good break in period to be at it's best. This video shows how it sounds straight in no pedals.

I'm liking Michael Britt's Two Rock Kemper profiles. I had a Studio 22 that was great too. You could crank it but rein it in with the loop level.

is this still available?
There are still some that think the neck PU is moved to accommodate the extra frets which only proves they cannot detect the difference in length of each.
