If I didn't go vintage, I'd get something made by Amplified Nation, who do great Dumble style cabs for really decent prices. Though I played the Hiwatt through one of the new Marshalls for months and it sounded great, I think they are really good cabs!
I think if I could find an old Orange cab that would be the ticket... but I can't find one.
Gus I had no idea you were such a gear head. Gotta talk about that stuff when i see you at the next meetup.

Imagine all the Specials smashed by Pete Townsand over 5+ years.
The story I heard in guitar circles was that he actually had a favorite that he would play. Sometime during the show would go behind his amp, switch it for a brand new identical SG that he would later break into firewood.
If you read Pete's bio he describes how he was inspired to smash his guitar as part of performance art promoted by some wild avant garde German classical musician. Rather than guitars this guy would smash pianos at the end of each performance
Looks like they updated the model (and raised the price a pinch), but if you don't want to spend a lot of money, you could do one of them. Would leave you plenty of money for a hard case and a professional setup if it comes to you kind of goofy.
