      I’m not a specialist here, but this site should have enough photos for you to compare yourself:

      I’m not a specialist either but it definitely looks like someone has messed around with the wiring a bit. In my opinion that’s not such a big deal as long as all or most of the hardware is still original or the equivalent is there. The transformers look like the original Drakes which is cool. Filter caps tend to get changed anyway after several years because they will begin to leak over time affecting (I believe) the response of the amp to you hitting the strings. The JMP I got had some “extra” wiring added here and there to get some more gain but my tech just removed it all and made sure the rest was wired to specs. He even ran the wires in the same way that Marshall did so when you open it up now you’d never know anything was ever changed! What bothers me is when people start drilling holes in the chassis and adding tubes and stuff. I’m not sure if you have bought this yet but if it’s a good deal I’d get it. If it was a REALLY good deal I wouldn’t even mind if there was a hole drilled in it somewhere as in the end it is how it sounds that really counts! 😉 Find a tech who is a Marshall freak and he’ll wire that sucker up for you real pretty in no time! 😀

        thanks for your review.
        i haven’t bought it yet. what do you mean with the “really good deal”?

        at the back of the amp the font isn’t like handwritten. I have never seen that at the back of a 2203! do you?

          A “really good deal” would be below 700 Euros for a modded amp, as long as the mods are reversible.

          I believe it depended who the amplifier was made for, as in for what country. There is a pretty good article on this site by Jaiminho Pagina with some info on Marshalls that mentions this.

              Yes. I think he mentions the different logos on the back in there somewhere.
