I was really glad when I found this forum and I'm hoping to get some advice on how to proceed. A quick scan of the site shows only a few posts specifically on the Mark IIs so I'm wondering if they are generally less desirable than the Mark IIIs or IVs?
Since I think my friend wants to sell the amps when they are in working order I was thinking that keeping them in as close to their original condition as possible would be best. My plan is to test the components and only replace things that are clearly not working. Also, the chassis is not shiny like some of the pictures of the Mark IIIs I've seen. Was this the way the Mark IIs were made or has it just become dull over time?
Finally, I'm interested in getting a little more information on these amps in general, so any information of this type would also be greatly appreciated.
