    Just that. If you wanted to sell it on Reverb or eBay how much would you list it for? The cab is in good enough shape, tho hardly perfect. The (stock, Eminence) speaker OTOH is 100% solid, no issues, and provided with a 6' heavy gauge speaker cable and 1/4 Switchcraft plug.

    $150.

    The speaker is nothing special and really adds little value.

    What would a Vox Night Train cab go for in your parts? I would treat it something similar to that. Just as an extension with a so-so speaker. $150 maybe.

    I was gonna say $100.....lower than the other responses, I guess. I usually like those Fender (Eminence) speakers....pick them up occasionally for about $50. I'd almost rather build my own cab out of lighter weight pine, so THAT's what has less value IMHO.

    Yeah, I'd also say somewhere between a hundred and one-fifty. It's a nice looking cabinet.

    Yep, 100-150 I would think with cheap shipping. People change them out for pine I think, so not a a high value thing. But it looks pretty nice and someone wanting to build an amp or extension on a budget will likely like it. You can get a pine custom built for 200-225

    Ask $125 and take $100.

    I want to what what's going to be happening with the chassis etc that you yanked out of it. ;)

    I have an aging BJ ( 1999 Blonde) with an aftermarket Emi Neo mag speaker to cut out some weight ( me, bad back) - and it's my main amp, many years
    I always thought the stock Fender/Emi speaker was fine- pretty much an all-purpose clone of a ceramic Jensen C12N or similar, right?
    I'd ask $150

    Heh, no news there I'm afraid. Years ago my brother took a series of BJs apart doing all the BillM mods, speaker swaps, cab builds, etc. I've used this for several years as a 'neutral test bed' for amps I was building.

    And I forgot, it comes with a very nice D2F cover.

    Still, I'm glad to see folks suggesting $100-$150 -- that's about what I was thinking. One of my goals when I sell stuff is to *get it sold.* :)

    I will give you $150.00 for it if you include shipping to London England!

    With cover I would ask around 150€ but I would take anything between 100€ and 150€

    Buyer pays sending

    To me, there is little value in a stock cab and speaker such as that. On the other hand, others are not in agreement!

    That said, I don't think it's crazy to list it at $150ish. You can always accept lower offers.
