Up for grabs is my recently finished Fender Tweed Princeton 5F2-A combo with built-in power attenuator for bedroom shredding. $1055.00 - Electronics by me, cab by BG. I build vintage valve amps as a hobby, not for profit! See TradeMe for full details https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2396364223.

Here's the money shot...

This is the first cab I've rounded the back edges over.... normally I leave them flat, its a subtle difference.
8" in a big box has got to be good. My vibrolux is a 10" in a 5e3 size cab :)

easy JB, hold the tiger at bay.

How does that 8" sound in there?

It's ironic really - Leo aimed these (& Champs which are essentially identical amps bar the addition of a tone control) at the "student" end of the market. Then they end up getting recorded for classics such as Layla & now we covet them. Maybe I'd better hang on to my Peavey Rage 158...

I thought about that as the Tweed Princeton cab is the same dimensions as the Tweed Deluxe but a bit narrower. So I decided to go for the original 8" spec, but that 8" hole can be made into a 10" or 12" without too much trouble. It's mounted to a floating baffle which can be taken out by removing the 4 screws at the front.

I honestly have no idea! Part swap & some money perhaps because I need the cash for the next build :) Just thought I'd put it out there. What you got?
