Possibly? I bought it a few months back from jeremyb.

It's currently operating as a 1x12 cab running an Eminence Wizard, sounds really good. It has the option of closed or open back; majority of combos I've always liked open but this cab sounds really nice and tight with the back on it 8)

Looks like it has similar aesthetics to the one Grant's selling; I really dig that old look and the Plexi-style gold-on-white Marshall logo. Sexy time :lol:
FYI, I have a 2061 cab, same as Grants and I converted the cab you have to a 1 X 12 and added the salt'n pepper cloth to better match them up.

If anyone is interested in Grants cab but would like a pair I can source another one (not mine, which I love ) down here.

I'm interested in the grill cloth replacement - where did you source the cloth, how did you do it, and how much did the whole procedure cost?

I have a bog standard 1960B cab I'd quite fancy giving a makeover...

I did indeed get it from Ryan. Cost about $95 for the cloth, maybe shipped. It was relatively straightforward as I had cut a new baffle. Just Stretch the cloth tightly while fixing with a staple gun. The only hassle is that when you screw in the baffle the screws can grab and twist the cloth slightly. I would think this is less of an issue with other thinner material though.

soak the cloth first, it will shrink when drying and tighten up nicely :) Pro tip 101

Cool. I did wonder if cellulose dope might work too. When I was a kid you'd put that stuff on the tissue paper covering model aircraft wings and it'd tighten like a drum.

yeah the dope though is just like lacquer eh? I guess you could use it but then it would be stiff, probably doesn't make a difference, unless it cracks lol

it would probably be a good idea cheaper option to ask bg to make a cab and throw a green back in it.
