Thanks! I was aware of that but there are postings across the internet that some Peavey 4x12 cabs are MDF. I just want to know if it's true and if so, which ones are MDF so that I can avoid them.

I'm not sure if the word "most" is accurate.
I had a XXL 4x12 that was made entirely of particle board, not MDF, not plywood.
Also, I think the Windsor 4x12s are all PB. My 5150 412 back is 1/2" PB, although the 4 sides and baffle are plywood.
If you take a side handle off, you can tell pretty quick. That's really the only way to know for sure.
I think they changed materials all the time, so it would be hard to nail this question down.
