    I've got an urge to make a classic style head case for my Aggie DB750. Something that will make it fit right in with the old tube amps and cabs visually. I don't really care for the one Aguilar sells.
    I guess I'm just looking for a little direction, style wise.
    I appreciate any helpful thoughts.

    What is it about the one that they sell that you don’t like. It looks like many vintage cabinets. The chrome corners helps vs the black ones.

    Personally, the only things that I would change is the top front cutaway. Ampeg did this with the Japanese MTI SVT’s. Maybe the vinyl, I prefer the smoother Marshall Black Levant.

    If you don’t want to build one, you can custom order one to your specs. Here is an example.

    Thanks for the info on the svt case. I guess I'm looking for something that doesn't look so much like a rack case. I don't care for the indent on the aguilar case, although they probably put it there to make it look less rack like as well. I guess thats why I was looking for suggestions.
    I also enjoy building things, so thats part of it too.

    Here's a mock-up of what I think would be a good compromise. It's sort of a Matamp style case with piping. I'm going to have to get creative hiding the rack ears. I'll start a build thread when I get started.
