Over on the other project, I'm brining back my 1965 Bassman head.

Like the Sunn, dumbazz me painted the grill cloth black many decades ago.

I see at one of our sponsors they have the Beige/Brown, Gold Stripe and wonder9ing if this is close enough for period correct.

According to ampwares.com, the cloth you're linking to is what came on a "late 1963-1964" Bassman.

To best of my knowledge, and also according to ampwares.com, a 1965 Bassman would have

black white and silver

Sorry Stratmanx, I assumed that your 65 Bassman has black tolex. If your amp has blonde tolex, then the cloth you linked to would be period correct.
