1985 Marshall Lead 12 (5005) Guitar Amp - Restoration, Cab Corners, Grill Cloth, Capacitors, Speaker

Long video today, so grab a beverage of choice. This was a thrift store find, a 1985 Marshall Lead 12. It was in desperate need for attention with dirty pots, bad caps, a torn speaker, and lots of cosmetic flaws. I give it a fairly thorough restoration (without completely recovering it), and I restore its function completely. For a solid state bedroom amp, it sure captures a lot of the classic Marshal sound.
