    Bet it’s awesome. How long did it take you to build it?

    Is that a blues junior cab? I'd like to look at this if so.

    Not long. About 4 or 5 hours of soldering and installing parts.

    No, it's a 5E3 cab made by Mather Amp Cabinet with blackface cosmetics.

    Looks great! So I would imagine you've built other amps before, if you built this sourcing your own parts, etc.... and if so, what else have you built?

    Thank you. I've built dozens. Tweed champs, tweed princetons, blackface champs, tweed deluxes, single ended plexis and JCM 800s.

    What's the rough cost of a job like this?
