Not with that tolex :lol: Can you get a dark blue head cab? :wink:
Can get red or purple big boy!
Basic black, I suppose would be the best option. Is it the same width as the Plexi? My OCD needs to know…
It's the exact same head cab. The Sixty-One SRT chassis will fit right in :)

Here's a new Sixty-One SRT demo by blackstratblues. Warren played a single coil Strat for over half of this so for those of us wondering about those tones, here we go. And there's some great LP humbucker tones in the final 3rd. At the end he demos the amp with the VRM turned right down (it's at full for the rest) - the same tones are available into a cab at neighbour friendly volumes. Thanks Warren, great playing, much appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIfvazghKUw

Here's the prototype of my Sixty-One SRT amp badge designed & 3D printed by bobiron. What do you think?
Lot's of skills on this forum and bobiron's a GC!

Sorry about the slight sag on the "SRT" - it's the tube rectifier I guess :)
