I was going to post a picture of the first Marshall amp either in Artifacts or Instruments, but I couldn't quite narrow it down to a singular photo. The JTM-45 would be the model, but finding the right one proved elusive.

All Marshall amps should be turned to 11 for a one minute tribute on the day of his burial
