Is this cabinet birch or pine? All the other cabs on the website are specified as pine except the 4x12, which is birch...no wood type is specified for this cab though. I'm thinking I want to pick up a PRS 2x12 sometime. Shoulda snagged the used one I saw a while back.

I think it is birch for some reason. I can't remember where I read this, though.

S'posed to be a really nice cab.

I thought birch also, but looking for some confirmation. I played thru one and it sounded really good but I hadn't played thru the 2 channel custom head before so it was tough to gauge since I was dialing the head more than anything else.

They are great, I just bought one. This is a 2x12 that sounds like a 4x12!!! And its a lot easier to move up and down stairs! I may add casters to mine????
