Quick OverviewAmp Guitar Marshall 1960B-X 4x12 100W Classic Bottom
From 1962 to 1966, all Marshall cabinets were built using butt-joints - meaning that the pieces of wood that make up the four sides (Left, Right, Top & Bottom) of the cabinet were literally "butted" up against each other and glued. From late 1966 to the current day, all Marshall cabinets (including combo and head boxes) employ fingerlocked joints (a.k.a. comb joints) on every corner/edge. As well as literally "fingerlocking" the two pieces of wood firmly together, this type of joint also greatly increases the surface area being glued, maximising adhesion and strength. "I brought the machine when we moved the factory to Bletchley," Jim recalls. "I did so purely for road worthiness and it's worked out well over all these years. our 4x12" cabinets get knocked about like mad you see, and yet the joints are still OK." In fact, if the truth be told, thanks to the fingerlocking, the resulting joints are actually stronger than the actual wood being used.
