In this video, we’ll look at a real historical HONEY of a guitar amplifier. This is NOT a reissue! This is an ORIGINAL 1964 Marshall JTM45 Super Tremolo Amplifier Model 1962, known affectionately as the "Bluesbreaker" after the John Mayall album "Blues Breakers", on which a young Eric Clapton played. It’s always nice for me to see amps like this because so few of them exist, and also because so few of them exist in my part of the world.
The owner of this amp is also the owner of the Fender Champ I recently serviced. We sent the original speaker in that amp off for a recone at The Speaker Workshop due to a rubbing voice coil. While picking that amp up, he decided to bring along his Bluesbreaker, which has been sitting for over a year untouched, due to a badly punctured Celestion G12 T731 speaker, which apparently came originally in a Selmer amp? We are not sure. In this case, he wanted to avoid a recone if possible, so I’ll show you how to fix a speaker puncture using a hot glue gun and we’ll open up the amp and examine the guts. Then we’ll plug it in and jam with some Glen Miller custom korina Gibson Futura and Flying V guitars.
This is the WORST speaker puncture I’ve ever attempted to fix using this hot glue method. If you DO need a recone on a vintage speaker, I highly recommend The Speaker Workshop in Fort Wayne, Indiana: http://bit.ly/RECONE
