I’ve recently began building custom Guitar Speaker Cabinets.

The customer wanted this one to be lightweight so I went with 1/2 in baltic birch plywood.

The color is a custom blended “Dark Chestnut” that has been “aged” with the help of a random orbit sander, then finished off with BLO and Shellac.

Hope you enjoy looking!

Great job! Have any more details on the speakers going in or the head that’s going to be used?

This one is getting eminence speakers, 1 swamp thang and 1 texas heat. The amp he uses is a mesa dual rectifier. As far as the back, it’s going to be a two piece sealed back so he can take half of it off if he wants the open back sound later on. Thanks for your comments.
