My latest cab project is finished. I had Bob Burt build me a 4x12 antique pine straight cab. I got some cloth from 89custom which he found, sent to me, then I painted it with white fabric paint. I put good old Marshall black levant tolex and gold piping on it.

End result, an old looking cab with four Scumnicos in it...weight of 83 lbs loaded. I just need to put the casters in it and I'm done.

Did you get a good deal on the speakers? :p

Looks awesome! I think I have some Scumback Speakers in my future to pair with my Mighty Plex!

looks nice..that tolex is tight. How do you get it that good?
Lots of practice. Lots of mistakes, too. :jo Good prep helps, plus I cut the tolex to within 1/4" of actual size before I glue it down, makes it a lot easier to handle if you cut it straight. An L square IS your friend on this type of cab.

looks good, Jim....tone report...???...:D
It's pretty much making my big toe shoot right through my boot, John.

I asked that rat bastid that owns the company to cut me a deal. He said I don't play out enough, don't have a recording deal, and frankly have far too much fine gear for my limited abilities, so I had to pay retail. Sheesh. I even know him. :crazy

That looks outstanding. Reminds me of the Marshall offset JTM45 cab. I love the grill cloth.
Thanks for the compliments. Actually, the original white cloth of the offset head & cabs was the inspiration. I can't take much credit, though. Another guy I know on another forum (89custom) had the cloth and the white fabric paint idea first, so I asked him how much, how fast and how could I do it! LOL He was pretty accommodating, sold me two yards of cloth, told me what fabric paint to get, then sent me instructions on how to do it. It was (still is) messy on the work table, but the results were pretty good. It's pretty close to the original white cloth Marshall used.

I've got one more yard of the cloth (still needs to be painted), so I need to find a suitable slant cab to recreate the look one more time.
