    mammx412aru.jpg 71kWfURn-EL._AC_SL1500_.jpg My new Marshall MX412AR 240W 4x12 cabinet is out for delivery this morning. I won't get the super lead 3210 mosfet head until next week.
    I'm sure I'll like it. I know the neighbors will.

    I can't believe this. Musician's Friend sent a MG50fx instead of the 412 cabinet I ordered!!!!! How does anyone make that mistake?

    Thanks, GG. If I ever get it. I'm returning their mistake tomorrow and my original order should be here next Thursday.

    I'm probably too late but did you know you can return anything from MF to the GC store? Saved me a lot of trouble.

    Congrats. Shame about the mess up.

    Btw, first pic is an MX cab, the 2nd is from the Origin series. Same price and performance(likely), different optics though.

    Too bad the head didn’t come with the matching cab(s).
    Those 1965/1966(model numbers not years) cabs rock. They’re getting harder to find but are still out there. Smaller form factor, plywood instead of Mdf, and about the same price as your new cab. Keep an eye out for’m.

    Thanks! Good eye. I just grabbed images under the search for the MX cabs.
    The head should be here this Monday and the cabinet is supposed to be here Wednesday.

    I did not know that either . I'm curious @Dumbthumbs , did MF offer that info when you discussed the return with them ?

    Thanks Thunder. The first thing it gets is a set of casters.

    Yes, they did. Seems like Guitar Center and Musician's Friend have been joined at the hip since 1999 when GC purchased MF.
    The closest GC is Albuquerque, a 4 hour drive for me. So, letting the MF'ers send a UPS return label with the driver was a no-brainer.
    Guitar Center has struggled with its debt load since coming out of bankruptcy last year. It seems that has affected performance from the top down.

    Oh, thanks. You enablers are quick to spend my money but when it comes to the heavy lifting you just wait in the car.

    There's another thread about MF and getting orders wrong.
    It appears to be getting worse...:eek:.

    I must be ordering all the wrong stuff from MF.
    Everything I've ordered has been correct when I received it. HaHa

    Maybe it's a special deal MF has with Fender and Vox to screw up Marshall orders.
