Starting in July 1969, Marshall starting using official serial codes.

As Ken Bran later said, "The JTM also had different harmonic content, and this was due to the large amount of feedback I had given it." In 2014 Marshall reissued a "handwired" 30W amplifier based on the JTM45, the 2245THW, whose circuitry is identical to the Bluesbreaker circuit; it is a "fine high-end piece" according to Vintage Guitar, listed at $4,800.

For all of its differences when compared with the Bassman, the sound of the JTM 45 is still described as "like a tweed Fender"; it has more sag and less crunch than the later Marshalls, and is favored for blues and rock rather than for hard rock and metal.

Look for original black levant covering, a gray grille and the old block-style Marshall logo.

From January 1965 to June 1969, model codes were used but no known serial numbers accompanied them.

Early Marshall through the JCM800 series July of 1969 Marshall introduced the date coding system.

Some of the older amps have an inspection sticker on the top of the chassis and they usually have the day, month and year the amp was made or inspected.

July 1969 - December 1983 EXAMPLE: SL/A 24523 D SL/A = Model Code 24523 = Serial Number E = Date Code This amp would have be a 100 Watt Super Lead 1972 January 1984 - October 1992 EXAMPLE: S/A T 24523 S/A = Model Code T = Date Code 24523 = Serial Number This ampwould have be a 50 Watt 1985 JCM900's The JCM900's began using a Bar Code system which consists of 9 digits which are broken down into three sections.

EXAMPLE: 950322589 95 = Year 03 = Month 22589 = 5 digit serial number This amp would have been made in March 1995.
