That's cool! Let me know if you want any help getting it up there. We could have it running on a little AWS S3 website in a few minutes. I reference the old pages on that site quite a bit using the wayback machine. I'm always bummed all the images are missing.

Finally found a hardwood 15" for sale but it is a lot more than I can afford.

I got a tolex and wicker 15" today. It's an early Mark III. I plugged it in a bit before I went into to work this morning and liked it a lot. I didn't get a chance to mess with everything but there's something super smooth about this amp that I really enjoy. I've got my eye on a later hardwood Mark III 15" as well, but it might be a while before I can pull the trigger. Too many amps at the moment, need to thin the heard a bit before I can pick up anything else.

Digging this thing a lot, but strongly considering switching the medium chassis Mark III into my walnut medium headshell and moving the 15" cab so I can try and get the hardwood one instead... :) :) :)

Here's a couple of photos from my 15" Mark I combo, I bought it last year in Berkeley:

btw this is just eye candy; it gets played a lot. Too good of a looker and too good sounding to not play it out whenever possible.

This was on cl for about 40 days, one pic, and the description was for a mark 3. At a music store no less...turns out its a Mk2-B, 15"
I cannot find a definitive operating manual that explains the 2 1/4 jacks and one rca jack situated under the chassis. One is a "junction", one is for the dual Mesa footswitch...Mesa themselves were no help, in fact through some trial and error they were flat out wrong. Their manual online is not that great either, but I understand that somewhere out there is a really good Mesa operator manual....C'est la vie

I had a black tolex 15" Mark IIB maybe 15 years ago or so. It was a cool amp, but it was so heavy that I found myself not using it and I sold it.

It was originally a Mark III, but I swapped my IIC+ in there for fun. Will likely put a Mark III back in there.

These are heavy for sure, but I have a hardwood 2x12" Dual Rec Trem-o-Verb that takes the cake. I don't even try to move it on my own.

Ok gotcha:) I believe you about the Trem-o-Verb weight. Sometimes it's worth owning gear just to look at and play through at home though.

Here's mine, a 1978 Boogie. Picked it up a couple years ago at a local used music store. The reverb is super lush. Big cleans, nice saturated overdrive, definitely one of the best amps I've ever played. Gets a lot of play these days.
