    I am considering a Marshall 2245 reissue head, but I am looking for a 2x12 to match it.
    Basically I want a cab that looks like a 1960AX but with the size of a 1936.
    Checkerboard front and vinyl "leather" like the 2245 head, no corner protection etc.
    I checked the Marshall "design shop" but it seems hard to get it spec'ed like I want.
    An empty cab could work, I can install speakers and wiring myself but the vinyl I hope to get fitted from supplier.
    I checked out a few cab builders but so far I haven't found what I'm looking for.
    Any suggestions on where to look?

    Id highly recommend Sour Mash, Ive bought a head and cabinet from them and both are absolutely gorgeous and very well made. I think they are even very reasonably priced for what you are getting too.... You can also pretty much customize them to whatever design options you'd like, just send them an email if you can't configure it online to your exact spec and they can probably make it happen.

    Could also go with this Mojo and put a Marshall logo on it.

    I've was very disappointed to discover that the 2061CX cab is 15mm narrower than the 2245 head ... would have been a perfect match, otherwise. I ran my 2245 through a Cornford 2x12 with Vintage 30s. Solid pine, though ... damn thing weighed 30kg ...

    Thanks for all the inputs.
    I was instantly convinced that I need a Mather cab when looking at their site, it appears to be spot on for my need. Also Sourmash seems very nice.
    As I am located in the o-so-far-from-US country of Norway, it turned out that none of them are able to ship to me. Still hard to get over the Mather cab but I guess I need to move along.
    So, anyone knows of builders in Europe doing the same stuff?

    I think they speak English too, but if you need assistance, please let me know!

    Thanks for your help. I will send them an email.
    The cabs looks good I think, but I can find very little info online about them. Have you tried their cabs? Or heard any customer feedback in general?

    A friend of mine ordered a Dumble Combo cab from TT, and it's well made. However, if you can do a bit of woodworking, you can make your own quite easily. I'll post some pics of mine later on.

    +1 for sourmash cabs. They made me a custom head cab for 36watt head and it was exactly what I wanted. Fit and finish was second to none.

    Best of luck finding what you are after.
