Or any ideas you might want to do or dream builds if you just had the time or money to do so. I'm lucky that I have enough of both that I can pursue it for some spare cash to mainly fund more builds.

Anyway most of my pics from my first 3 cabs I have on my phone that if I want off it I have to forward to my wife's phone and then she can upload them. she isn't interested in helping me out in that aspect. no matter, this is my first commissioned build for Mauler. it's a 212 cab that's going to be wrapped in snakeskin tolex and loaded with vintage 30's.

Pretty much to the point of just needing to cut out where the grips will be and tolexing it. once I do that it's just hardware/wiring speakers and testing it out to make sure.

The cab I've been having made will feature 1 Cerwin Vega 189E and 4x12's the 18 will be folded horn configuration. Right now I dont know what the problem is. when I last saw it, it was basically complete. Since then I've basically heard nothing from the guy. Contacted him about a week ago and he said "one more week" I'll be hitting him up again later today.

I have a 2x12 a friend has been he'd pay to build him for at least a year. A couple planned for myself, been wanting to build some 4x12's for guitar and a sealed 2 ohm 4x15 for bass. I've been knee deep in trying to get a shop setup in my garage for a while, have most of the tools but still need to do the remodeling, so haven't had any time to get started on anything yet. If I just sat down and worked out a cut sheet and ordered the plywood, I'd probably just get at least one of them done over a weekend. Oh, procrastina....

I love hearing about all these monster rigs, esp the 8x12, that was something I was planning as well till I kinda thought about transporting it would be such a huge pain in the ass. Still plan on doing duel 612 cabs stained, one in birch and one in oak, same with 2 415 cabs.

Ax... fuck that's nice. really fucking nice.

I don't have the time/energy/talent to build my own stuff. I do want a 1x15 and another 2x12 to make some mini stacks though.

After seeing those pics of your personal builds, I wouldn't be hesitant about throwing some business your way when more cabs are in order :animal:

:thumb: Sounds great to me.

I wanted to work on it more today but I had too many stupid errands and shit to do right after work. Hopefully tmwr I can manage some work on it, I have a package I have to sign for at the post office and it just sorta sucks since it's a 30min drive between where I live and were I work. So once I leave one area that's it I'm not going back till the next day.
