Mesa Boogie Imbuia Hardwood & Wicker Thiele Ported Compact Cab

Posted on November 25, 2017 by Scott French

This is the Holy Grail of Mesa cabs, a vintage hardwood & wicker Thiele compact cab with the original EVM-12L. This one is in Imbuia and the figure is gorgeous. Judging from the logo plate and jack style I would guess this is from the mid to late eighties.

The condition is solid, but a little rough around the edges. Someone definitely loved this cab and got a lot of use out of it. There are a good amount of dents and dings as shown in the photos. That all being said, you usually only see one or two of these go up for sale online every year, so finding one at all is a rare event.
