Can anyone give me info on the JCM 600 heads?

My local store has one available for $350 and I was considering grabbing it. I liked how it sounded when I briefly heard it today, but would go back to check it out some more.

Were these reliable amps? Any major issues I should know about? Are they closer to the JCM 800s or JCM 900s?

Any info anyone can provide would be appreciated.

More like the 900 than the 800 I would say. Not at the top of the reliability list. ;) Lots of heat and not well vented.
It's the JTM60 with some cosmetic updates.
If you like the sound, the price doesn't seem bad. Still not as unreliable as that whole line of marshalls with bad circuit boards that people are still buying up. (certain era DSL & TSL).
