    I have been planning on building a new head cab for my Traynor YBA-3 Custom Special. Bought wood, cut it, but just haven't been able to get any farther -- not time, really bad at tolexing, etc. Any have recommendations on a good cabinet builder that can reproduce a Traynor YBA-3 custom special head cab? Would be much appreciated.

    Sourmash. Good builds for good prices.

    Where are these folks located? If they can build me a Mark III head cab cheaper than Mesa, I may just do that. But, I am not giving them my email address, and Google isn't turning up very much.

    Iirc, florida. Alsi, I think his sight isn't working right now. I've got his email, but if you don't want to use that...

    Can't say if he can do what you want. I forget what a mark iii looks like. You'd have to ask him.

    The chassis is an '81 Marshall JCM 800 4010 combo that I put into a Mather Head Cab. It sounds killer! :D

    Nice, what did that cost you, if you don't mind my asking?

    Hey, you should sell that to me! Then, instead of sitting beside a Dual Rec, it can keep my Mark III company. Just kidding, but not really, if it's for sale.

    Sorry about the crappy phone pics BTW. I think if I remember correctly around $275. The Swanson was more $ and now I can't remember which one had a longer wait, they were both great to deal with.
