That's sweet! Any of them custom or they're all authentic Boogie factory?

You know, I am not really sure. The middle one I am the most curious about. I sent photos over to Mesa customer service before buying and they thought it was legit. I paid as if it was legit too. But once I got it the grill is a little funky, looks like the wrong wicker. The plywood under the wicker is also a different color than others I've seen. Now that I have another short head I can see the grill section on the middle one is taller as well. I am not sure if that is just a difference between DC series and Mark series headshells? The dovetails look good, cleats in the rear, one-piece board, cutout in the front for the fan, etc, etc, etc. It all looks right, I just guess the wicker/grill just has alarms going off. It's a cool piece either way so I will happily hang onto it. I would like to get the "proper" wicker installed though.

Yeah, man. It's a great looking piece. I didn't even notice the wicker differences until you pointed it out. Lol. Whoever did the build, did a great job whether it was from Boogie or a custom. 8)

I'm replacing a torn cloth on a Mark IV with the wicker. I'm debating on staining the wicker to match my other Mark or letting it change naturally. The bright wicker just screams aftermarket. Lol.

Good luck with the repair! I would be interested in hearing how it goes when you get it all sorted.
