Nice jointing man! I did build 3 guitar cabs, using birch. Yeah they're not light but they sound good and are durable. I did the same for the facing: select pine. The tolex job looks awesome too!

Yep,Legend CB158 300 watt 8ohm. The 2 cabs give me a 4 ohm load.I say 2 of them,cuz I have a matching one Im getting ready to put the tolex on.

annoying, but it happens.

to me the super-skinny necks seem more prone to this kind of instability.
