  • Fender Tweed Champ Wide Panel (5C1) or Smaller 5E1 Narrow Panel Cabinets?

    I love the tiny size of the original "The Champ" wide panel amps. Does anyone sell a true-to-original clone cabinet (and matching chassis, though that's probably pretty easy to bend out of a straight sheet of aluminum/steel)?

    If I can't get one of those, is there anyone who sells the smaller 5E1 narrow panel cabinet?

    Failing that, if I have to custom order either of these (with matching chassis), who would you recommend I go to?

    Thanks in advance!

      Took me a long time Googling to find the true dimensions of an original 5C1 cabinet, so I'm posting the link here for others who might be searching:

      Wide panel, 11" x 12" x 7" (27.9 x 30.5 x 19.1 cm)

      This is a pretty detailed page on the amp:
