    Hi TGPers! Please can you guys help me ID this cab I have just purchased? I "think" it is a 1967 as it has 67 dated 20w greenbacks (cone codes 29 102 003) and no side handles, but the cloth is not original so not sure on that score. Also, what type of grill cloth should it have as I plan on doing a very light resto?

    Nice Score! That cab should sound great. The grillcloth should be the rare pinstripe type. Other than that it looks great. Thats a rare cab you got there. Hope you got a great deal on it.

    I wondered if it could be pinstripe....Anyone else?

    I got a fair deal on it but the bonus was it was literally 5 miles from me so an easy deal with no risk.

    You'll want the Eric Collins Pinstripe Cloth to restore this cab. I have six cabs with this cloth, some of my old Southbay restorations and client cabs are in the gallery of cabs he features on the site. There's a couple of cabs in there that look like yours as well, so it's worth checking out since there are before and after pics.

    You'll definitely want to replace those crappy speakers with some nice updated ones like Scumbacks or something.

    Btw, as a fellow TGPer (we're all friends here), I'll do you a favor and take those old pile of craps off your hands and see that they are disposed of properly. :aok

    My post (offer) was before yours Mr. Scumback. I may be in Florida, but I'm from Orange County (Brea), and my brothers (both over 6'5") still live there. I'm sure they can *work out* a mutually satisfying deal for both of us. I get the speakers, and you get to continue to use your legs. :p

    I keed! I keed! They really are that big but, like me, are fairly civilized. :)

    "10-12" miles away. AKA, 1.5 hours depending on traffic. Lol
