    I sold my GK rig for this baby! This rig is so friggin' loud and yet so tight, it's a shame that we have yet to improve upon "ancient" technology! :rollno:

    This rig is far superior to my gk goldline cabs and gk 300 watt head. I play this monster through a stock squier P Bass with Fender flatwound strings and that's it.

    No effects, no multiple tone knobs or active electronics with batteries, just plug in and play! One tone knob, one volume knob is all I need. I let my fingers do the grooving.

    So here she is.......

    017.

    018.

    019.

    I plan on painting the cab the same color as my bass, blue and black, having the cab the same shade blue as my bass and the grill cloth black, to make it look new.

    I'm going to do the head also. Well, not me per say, but I'm going to have some one do it. I don't care, I like my vintage tone and I love my squier P. I don't need a thousand dollar bass to lay it down. I'm a simple straight up man when it comes to Bass. :bassist:

    Right on dude!
    I used to have that same rig back in HS. That 2x15 is a very good sounding cab. Does it have the origional stamped-frame, square magnet drivers? I think they were old CTS or maybe Eminence. Anyways, those drivers sounded great in that cab.

    I just don't understand why modern cabs just don't sound like this anymore? I mean, yes their have vast improvements on technology and so forth, but I cannot get the same warmness, feel or life from modern cabs.

    Very cool. :D I love what's referred to as vintage stuff. I don't think newer stuff is any better as to sound, and maybe, as you indicated, not as good. I understand the customizing for the Sunn that you want to do, but I personally love nothing better than to see vintage stuff in good condition, or even restored in extreme cases. Yours looks like just a good cleaning and maybe some touchup/detailing for it and it would look "classic." Just my opinion. Nice score. :cool:

    I just got my 1st 215 cab, and it's old, and it rocks. I'm with ya, ('cept I do use fx pedals), but that classic 215 bass tone is sweet.
