    Looking at 4x12's loaded with Greenbacks.
    I've never used one before in a gigging situation due to the size, but feel that I may be able to justify the purchase with a band I'm playing with now.
    I dont have a ton of room on stage, so a more compact 4x12 than say a Bogner or oversize marshall would be preferable.
    Any suggestions?

    You might try to find a Soldano 4x12 cab. I had one for a while that sounded great and was considerably lighter and smaller than some others that I'd been using. Just a suggestion....

    Check out Tone Tubby. They make (or at least used to make) a very compact 4x12. I have a Soldano 4x12, and it is indeed smaller and lighter than most.

    I think Marshall makes some smaller sized 4x12's.....

    Bruno makes a super-compact 4x12", I think Markom89 has one. Mad Professor and Tone Tubby also both make smaller versions.

    Fender Tonemaster 4x12s fit the bill, and are quite inexpensive on the used market. You'll have to install your own Greenbacks though.

    Ever consider a 4x10? The Marshall 4x10s from the '80s are great cabs.

    You know if you can find one of the 80's PRS 4-12 cabs.. those were cool. Warren Haynes used one of those for a while and it sounded killer.

    I suggest a Marshall 1965, 4 X 10" cab.
