    Very cool. I had an Acoustic 400 when I was a teenager. That one brought back some good memories.

    Some people can't imagine what I'd do with such a huge bass amp.

    I'll set it up in my basement, play through it on occasion, treat it like a mysterious artifact from my psychedelic years (a la 2001 A Space Odyssey) and sell the other one for fun and profit.

    Good luck on the project, LOVED the 360/371's.......

    Wish I could find a 301 cabinet near me at a reasonable price.......

    It's not a huge deal to ship a 301 from state to state. One of them that I bought came wrapped in cardboard and tape, with cutouts for the wheels and handles. This made the UPS guy's life easy. I'd have to look up the cost but who knows, maybe you will want one of my two 371s.

    Stay tuned......

    Man, I wish my Ampeg re-finish had real wood instead of this particle board stuff. It would be so much easier to do!

    Looks like a lot of fun and you are doing a great job.

    These sort of cabs that are built so well, are pleasure to restore.

    Good job!

    This is a memory lane trip for me. I bought one of these in 1972 or so, from Hyway Music on Rt. 18 in East Brunswick. Used it through most of the '70s, IIRC.
