It took about six month to get it all together:

pedal board > sms, jg 80's mod > mcintosh mc50 > 1x15 D130 (also have a 1x12 Avatar vintage cab, with matching cloth and a D120 - both original cones)

The box is something my pop put together. He has an old saw mill and I asked him to find the craziest wood he could. It's 100+ year old worm wood... some serious worm wood there.

thanks guys.

It sounds really good. More Jerry like than I've been able to get a fender amp to sound frankly. My life would have been a lot simpler had I mounted the mac on the bottom. Finding a shelf the right size took a while. I've only had the earth drive a couple of days, but it allowed me to split my pedals between the JG board you see there and a smaller board that I use in the bar band I'm in.

Having grown up in Kansas, Kustoms were always around (we slept on them in the van back in the day). This is a 2x15 that was cut in half. It has a 15 EVL in it. Someday I'm gonna find a nice set of tuck and role PA columns to use as monitors for practice.

You have inspired me to build one of my own (i'll need extra support for a 2100, but that's an easy fix). Tell your Dad nicely done and excellent choice of wood.
