The guide for that is much simpler: be nice, ask questions, offer beer.
The guide below will help you quickly and clearly date Marshall amps and cabinets, without us waxing poetic about their influence.Starting in July 1969, Marshall starting using official serial codes.They were initially broken down into three parts: the model code, the serial production number and the date code.For example, the number S/A 8481 E tells us that this is 50W amp (S/A) made in 1973 (E), production number 8481.From January 1984 to September 1992, the three-part coding was used by Marshall but the date code letter was moved from the end to the middle. This would indicate a 100W Super Lead (SL/A) built in 1989 (X), production number 10059.
The same model codes from the previous section of this article still apply, although the model code "RI" is also seen for reissues. Starting in October 1992, Marshall moved away from stamped metal plate serials and began using stickers with a xx-xxxxx-xx format serial and a bar code. The sticker-based nine digit scheme lasted through July 1997.
