Sorry to start another thread on it, but when I was researching them I had a hard time finding good reviews or pics so I figured it should be done. I ordered this last weekend and it arrived yesterday, (wednesday.) $179. shipped. I'd been pricing and checking out Cabs for a couple weeks and my only real concern was that it was a closed back and made of Birch. (because Don/ST said to get Birch.) Well,...the shipping co was pretty dang rough on it.. Box took a beating. Wouldn't have been bad except... The stryo they ship with is incredibly thin. Cab corner went right through it... Which of course slightly dented and chipped the corner guards... Glad they're metal or they'd be broken. I'm really surprised Seismic chose to ship it this way,...but then again shipping was free,..so... The Cab does look nice. And it feels sturdy like I could jump up and down on it. Obviously it took some hard hits in shipping but the Cab is still rock solid. No creaking or loose feeling parts or anything. It's very solid feeling. Sadly they seem to Krazy Glue their Logo directly through the grill cloth and onto the wood behind it. It's not coming off without tearing the grill cloth apart. The grill cloth is also slightly crooked and all pulls towards the logo/upper right corner. Again,..not the end of the world,..is what it is. Solid wood holding the grill cloth together... Seems reasonably well built... Came with the wires installed and with the slip-on connectors already installed. Nice! Good rubber feet, and the tolex was flawless. I had to look for a couple minutes to find the seam, and then it took a few tries before I was able to get it on camera. Not a big Tolex fan, but I was actually really impressed how tight and well done it is. And that the seam was hard to find. Solid handles... Pre-wired... Came with the speaker mount screws and the mounts installed (rear mounted) ..and just because I was curious... So is it worth $179.? Yeah I think so. Obviously I can't say how it sounds yet, but it's solid, deep, a good size, closed back. I can't see any reason why it wouldn't sound good. So now that I have a good shell my plan is to customize it. I want to rip off the grill and put something Victorian looking and bizarre in it's place,..something like... or Something that never in a million years would people be expecting Metal/Blues to be coming out of. And I'll most likely tear off the Tolex, sand it a bit (I have a feeling there's gonna be glue residue) and stain it a very, very dark red,...maybe so dark it almost looks black. My goal is pretty much to make it look like a piece of old furniture. This will go well with the way I look I think I really want to thank Don/Soul Tramp for starting me off on this little adventure. I wasn't sure what to think when he first contacted me, but I'm so glad I decided to listen to what he had to say. True Gentlemen, total class. Thanks Don and thanks to MyLesPaul for making it possible.
