    I've just started using an old cabinet I've had around for years.

    It has two 12 inch speakers in it and looks like a Fender, but has no name plate.

    I bought it because I couldn't stand lugging my Ampeg B25B 2x15 cab around any more.

    I'm wondering if this cab couldn be a Fender.

    It has a serial number 48453 on a plate.

    Is that a Fender number?

    Traynor?

    Sorry, that is P.48453
     
  4. Looking at Velvet Black, I would think it's NOT a Traynor, which typically used 3, 4, and 7 digit serial numbers. Also, it would say on the back plate "Manufactured by Yorkville Sound Ltd., Toronto, Canada".

    from your pic, it looks like a '67 Fender (large) bassman cab to me since it has the aluminum 'drip' edging.

    Nothing to get excited about if it is a Fender. A look at the jack plate would confirm that.

    Bill,

    I'm not excited. it's just a $100 cabinet I own.

    What's the jack plate tell us?
