    Theres a few on google images. It looks as though production started in 1970. So yours would likely have been one of the first few made, early to mid 1970.

    That cab on reverb has been totally retolexed and regrilled, but it was made after yours (late 1970), you can tell by the castors.

    Who pays over 3k for a badly refurbished cab? Unbelievable some of these prices. If he got 3k for that you should ask 10k for yours.

    If you need new 15" speakers, check out the G15V-100 Fullback.
    They sound really good! I'm playing a 68 Super bass through a pair of these and they sound huge!

    At this moment its only an empty piece of wood. Sourcing a quad of the original g15m speakers seems like a no-brainer for this beauty, but it'll come at a cost. 2k perhaps? Alternatively JBL D/K/E 130.

    The one on reverb had a replacement g15c blackback. Recently saw on of those speakers sitting in a Leslie cabinet.

    It seems like either all those speakers were destroyed by bass players, or people pulled them out and sold the speakers. I've seen a lot more unloaded 1979 cabs than one actually holding speakers
