    So I have an opportunity to buy an empty cab but I'm a bit confused on it's age. There is no grill on it and a 9 inch logo (I think it's 9 inches, maybe it's 11). It has legit metal handles, and a birch back panel, but it has corners. The corners are throwing me off. Did they do corners in 70 or 71? I didn't think they did that till 72.

    The corners wont be original. The only real way to date it is by the woodwork itself. Everything else can be altered. So post some photos of the inside and some photos showing the bottom of the cab where the castors should be, and it should be fairly easy to date from that.
