Plastic simply can't hold up to heavy road use and abuse like metal.
In fact, today I went to another guy's house from craigslist to check out another 1960A with the same issue -- a missing handle, on the other side of the cab compared to the one I purchased a few weeks ago.
Hylight 4x12 Early Sound City cabinet and grill cloth like The Who used at Rock and roll circus.2x12 2/17 with purple Fane labels,25w, flux 17k.2x 122142 with purple Hiwatt labels,50w,17k flux.
Actually holds 4 50w Goodmans speakers, clearly non-original. Quite scruffy externally, a fair amount of foam wadding internally.
Funny how these iconic guitar cabs, loaded with the well-known Celestion G12T-75 speakers and all, staples of rock and roll for ages now, have brittle plastic handles installed from the get-go.
Rola Celestion was bought by Truvox - a manufacturer of public address systems in 1949.In 1992 the loudspeaker part of the business was sold to Kinergetics Holdings, which also bought KEF.I recently picked up a Marshall 1960A 4x12 Guitar Cab that was missing a side handle. Hylight 2x15 Model- SE 2150 S, this is a taller 4x12 sized 2x15, with diagonally set speakers, sadly original Fanes long gone, fitted with Eminence drivers from a Peavey 2x15, runs at 4 ohm, originally was rated at 100w, and 16 ohm, beige speaker cloth. The codes on the speakers are DM30, DM30, FM12 and CM21. Acquired from original owner, who purchased new from American Music in Seattle. Salt and pepper grill cloth nicely yellowed and intact. Hylight 4x12 Salt and Pepper grille cloth, cut-out handles, rear port, rear loaded with four Celestion G12-65 T2974. Original basketweave tolex and S&P grille cloth, stamped frame 122142 Fanes, 06/76 date, excellent condition for its age. A bit mangled and missing front logo plate getting a replacement soon!
Wartime restrictions forced Celestion and the nearby British Rola Company to produce loudspeakers to the same specification; British Rola bought Celestion in 1947 and moved production to Thames Ditton a year later.
