Tone Tone Tone!
The Memphis: A beefy 22.5"x 17" x 10.5" solid pine cabinet that is one sweet tone machine.
Light weight, resonate and built rock solid in the USA with dovetail joinery, there is no reason to settle for less.

A word about Vintage Fender Cabinet Construction. Info by Greg Gagliano. (Amp Historian)
"From circa 1972 to the early 1980s, the cabinets were no longer made from solid pine boards, but cheaper laminated, multi-piece pine boards.
Each side of the cabinet was made from several pieces about three or four inches wide, glued side-to-side, to make up a plank the depth of the cabinet. These laminated cabs were not finger joined, but rabbet joined.
The baffle board on these rabbet joined cabinets was mortised into the sides and bottom (i.e. - not removable) to hold the whole thing together. That’s why these post-1972 cabinets have the grill cloth stretched across a frame that is attached by a velcro-like system to the baffle.CBS almost certainly went to this construction method to save money, though at the expense of overall quality."
I have bought a lot of cabs in my life, and Paul's are, in my judgement, the best. He has great materials, craftsmanship, and designs that maximize with resonance without losing focus and adding unnecessary weight. His cabs are also beautiful.
I love my Rocket Cabs Memphis 1X12! It is the perfect size and weight, and is really balanced sounding. Build quality is outstanding- everything is perfectly done.
