What wood for cab/baffles, type of cab design, and speakers would you use?
I want the sparkly cleans and headroom that this
amp can produce.

Thanks!

Pine cabinet with 1/2 or 3/8 baffle. Just build it the same design as Fender and you will be happy. Also, use finger joinery. I use tight bond for glue, even for the tolex. I think Fender used hide glue.

Bbend nails it.

You could forego the Tolex and save some weight, as well.

While pricey, this might be the speaker for you. They only weigh 4.5 lbs each.

3/4" finger-jointed pine lumber for the cabinet, 1/2" birch ply for the baffle, 1/4" MDF for the rear panel, poplar for the cleats, Titebond Original for the woodwork, contact cement for the Tolex. jm2¢

If you don't want to Tolex the cabinet but want something tough and good-looking, get a can of aerosol spray-on bed liner, designed for steel pickup truck beds (paint aisle in your local auto parts shop).

It's a thick rubberized coating that easily goes on, and it cures to a pebbled surface that looks like Tolex from three feet away.

I sprayed an old 1x12 cab with similar stuff years ago. What’s also cool is you can spray it another color any time you want. 😂
