Anybody have one of these? How old is it? It has 2 400 watt EVs. That's all I know so far.
I'm no expert but they started making those back in the mid-80's and made them for a long time because they sound sooooo good.

This one appears to be from the "Road Ready" series... The "Diesel" series didn't have the front panel to close/protect the speakers, or the aluminum trim. Otherwise they are basically the same design (TL606 x 2, basically)
Likely from late 90s... '98 -'99, methinks.
That sounds about right to me, great cab! When they said "The Lord shall provide" they where not actually kidding then.
It has a front cover but doesn't have the butterfly locks. It also has a single recessed input jack.
Looks like the grill was replaced.
Mine (and others I have seen) have two separate grills, each with the full Mesa/Boogie logo.
yeah the "Boogie" logo doesn't seem right. I had the diesel version with the 200 watt EVs (actually very similar to the 400 watt version) and the logo was definitely different. Mine was from the early 90's
I am not doubting it is an original mesa cab, but it is different than the others I have seen. I have never seen one with just Boogie on it. I was thinking it may be older. I guess I could look at the dates on the speakers.
I found this one on EBay. It is identical except for the boogie logo. It has the Velcro front cover also.
^ this one looks right. I have two Diesel 115s with that badge.
And they ARE very righteous cabs!
Don't know if it helps any, but you can see my RR115 in this pic:
That particular "Boogie" logo can be bought from Mesa as a replacement.
Yes, that is the one usually seen on the roadready and diesel series cabs.
Yeah, the logo had already been turned sideways when I got it, so I left it that way... I typically have it sitting like in the pic, and usually tilted back when in use...
