    If you have woodworking skills, you should build your own. I build a few cabs for myself and I always use pine. Old pine at that!

    The prices at avatarspeakers.com are hard to beat. Especially for the loaded cabs.

    There are some very reasonably priced 2x12 solid pine cabs on eBay, but they are unfinished.

    I have built my own cabs before and the most difficult part for me was covering with Tolex. The contact cement has some very heavy duty vapors. Makes you look and play like this:

    I have ordered cabs from www.LopoLine.com and www.AvatarSpeakers.com. Now that Avatar is selling them unloaded their prices are actually better than Lopo. I think Lopo may have raised their prices too. But they are all void-less plywood, no solid pine that I know of.

    I got an empty 1x15 pine cab from the guy who builds them for Red Plate, there is a link for him on the Red Plate site. Great quality and service.

    Another vote for Bob, he makes fantastic cabs. I own a 1x12 closed back and a 2x10 open back combo cab made of old pine, they're amazing.

    Excellent cabs. 2x12's are wired to play both speakers or
    either speaker. Cool if you mix in cab. $295

    I have their 1x12. Very well done.

    Check out Mather. My pine 1x12 is amazing, and I know he makes a 2x12 version too.

    Has anyone mentioned Cornford? Their 4x12 and 2x12 cabs are all pine. I really like my Cornford RK 4x12 cab which sounds tonally richer than my 80's Marshall 4x12.

    Well, I haven't done a whole ton of comparisons. I kinda found something I like and stuck with it. That said, I have had a few other cabs to compare it to. Seems to breath more than the Orange I have. Less focused, more airy. There's a sort of resonant feeling that's hard to describe. I think the pine adds more of it's own character, as opposed to something else that might be more unobtrusive. But, I haven't done a lot of pure cab swapping yet (meaning, using the same speaker, same amp, same guitar, and just changing the cab), so I can't swear that I've isolated what I'm hearing.

    But, what I can say is I've been very pleased with the sounds I'm getting out of these cabs. How much of that is due to the pine I can't say for sure. More experimentation required...

    You posted that one a couple of years ago and it's looking cooler than ever. I love the grill cloth.
