Yeah, thats one plain looking sticker The new one kick ass.

Does anyone knows a good place to order cab parts? I tried Mojotone., but their shipping rates are trough the roof. I mean, 67$ of shipping for a 44$ order... Its nuts, right?

Anyway, as long as its have a speaker and a jack, I'll be OK. I'm not getting a new amp in the next amp, so it's not urgent, but it would be nice to have it looking pretty

I've gotten a lot of my amp parts from Mojotone and never had to pay anywhere near that much freight. Usually about $8. Of course I'm ordering small parts. Maybe you are getting something larger?

I couldn't tell you about shipping to Quebec. I live in Virginia and I think Mojo is in North Carolina so I'm only one state away. That order is pretty similar to what I've gotten before at an $8.00 freight fee.

I'm in Canada too, so I feel your pain on shipping. The build is looking good though.

I bolted the speaker to the baffle, and redid the wiring. I shortened the wire, and instead of soldering the wire to the speaker lugs, I found some connectors i soldered on the wire. I also changed the jack, the last one was all twisted. All there's left to do now is to drill the hole for the jack and recess the back of the panel, so I won't have to use a jack plate. Of course, I'll spraypaint it black, then cover it in tolex, put the grillcloth and add the handle, buts that long term. I won't have an amp for at least a month or two anyway, and there aren't any good deals popping out anywhere close...


(I promise better pics sometime soon)
