I could make you one though :)

I'd butcher this one but I actually did it in one piece of tolex so I really don't want to hurt it in anyway. I did it in one piece because I thought it was for you lol.

What's the advantage of one-piece tolex? I'm thinking being more seamless means less likely to peel over time. Hope you did an equally thoughtful job on the cab covering : )

It just looks better imo. Nah your head is 4 piece covered! I'd used my big piece on the combo ;)

I could convert the cab still, but the base of your head is 9 1/2" (damn you americans) and the top of the combo is 8 1/2"... there would be over hang.

Collecting this weekend. Strongly considering getting BG to build me a matching cab... a Mesa style vertical 2x12 but in Fender drag.

I do think that will be damn awesome, however give me warning as I need to order in silver grillcloth, extortionate price in nz. I have some stuck in european shipping currently, but not enough.
