I found what I needed for the Special 130, and Steve and Robert have what I need for the Pacer, so I'm probably good on those too. Thanks

Putting a Peavey Special 130 in a Pacer cabinet, modified for a 15" speaker. Prefer a Neo speaker, but will consider others.

I noticed something on this CD, the newest copyright date of all the songs is 1985, the oldest is 1951. Conclusion: The best Country music was written a long time ago. Smile

I have one built by Cush Case, it's kind of old but in good condition. I can take pics tomorrow and send to you if you like. It's just a basic seat with no back.

I agree John, I like my steels, guitars, and cars to look like they just came out of the showroom. It always helps the resale if they look good.

I think the wheeled cases that came with my MSA's weigh around 20 lbs. I went from a very heavy Clark D10 to a Williams keyless D10 around 1985, and it felt like I was only carrying about half of a gu ...

Bryan, a buffer for aluminum should run around 3400 RPM, a guitar body buffer should run around 1000-1200 RPM.
