Local dude claims "It's a 1972-1973 Marshall 2054 (or possibly 2054B), Picture Frame Cabinet, loaded with a vintage 15" 250w/8 ohms Celestion Powercel speaker" and wants C$900 for it (including a second spare drive unit) which seems fairish given rarity - especially of the  drive units, at least here in NA - but I have no idea really.  Too rich for my blood in any case and I have enough cabs, but I am very curious - anybody tried one of these ever?  I'd never even heard of them before.

It's definitely kinda cool, but the price seems pretty high for that.

He's dropped the price to 800 since posting.  Also remember that's CA$ (so about US$590).  I dunno if that's fair or not.

Idk, $590 doesn't seem that bad. I think it looks pretty sweet. I wonder if it's standard 4x12 dimensions, so you could add it to a stack. If it was closer to me, I'd probably snag it, especially since you get a spare speaker. Anyways, here's how it sounds with guitar and a JBL speaker.

That has to be a big cab if a 15" takes up that little of the total front area.
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

Since it's rear-mounted, that square of grille cloth is about 14".  ... so the cab is around 26-30" wide by my estimation.  The typical width of a 100w Marshall head is 29" so that makes sense given the picture of the stack there where they match nicely.

From the pic, it appears to be the same size as a standard Marshall 4x12, 29" x 29".  Most likely it's a bit deeper though.  I agree that $590US is not bad, but only by including the xtra speaker value.  That seems like a somewhat fair price.
