    Is this is a chopped version of the 215?

    I was not aware that there was a 115 V4B cab. So it's likely chopped unless I'm missing something, and it's beat to hell anyway. No way I'd buy it for $320.

    Too much money for the shape it is in. How's that?
    If it was $100 to $150 I would have nothing to offer to talk you out of it. :)

    If it is not a chopped cab, then someone stuck the V4-B input plate on it. 4 or 16 ohm selector makes NO sense for a single speaker cab.

    I'd snatch it up if I could. but not for that price. I have a bad habit of getting old heavy gear. I bet it sounds awesome. Just start a savings account for a chiropractor.

    Too expensive for the shape it's in.

    Chopped & altered. The V4b speakers faced each other closer toward front of cab and apart toward rear. That plug would have to have been altered. It's considerably smaller. Possibly without science. Unlike the Acoustic 360 there were no bolts visible on the outside. I know where of I speak. I owned a V4b cab new. Used a Marshall Major head but mostly a Sunn 2000s head.
