    IM converting my twin reissue into a head and im also going to get different tolex and grille on the head cabinet from mojotone. So now the question is blonde/oxblood or black/wheat. Also i think im going to go with a avatar cab which adds another decision traditional or contemporary? Traditional looks more like the typical piggyback cabs but i also love the look of the contemp.

    I know most people's answers are going to be its ultimately up to you but im having a real issue deciding haha just want to know what people are partial to.


    So basically HELP!

    I have always been a BIG fan of blonde/oxblood but how would that look with a black face panel? I believe I have only seen them with brown face... just something to think about

    cool idea tho! I want a BF bandmaster head bad!

    thats a good point though maybe blonde/black might be better and make it a little more unique

    you could go with a blonde and a black or charcoal grill cloth! that would be pretty neat it would be a contrast kinda thing black and white
