Livesound. I bought it off Strummers a few years ago. Lent it to Slowly for a while. Now back in my whare for a good while I hope.
Did they do the covering?
I see where you going.... I think BG and I can do those corners a bit better than that :wink:
Yeah the tolex is pretty ragged, probably age and poor workmanship. Had to cut and scrape out tolex and glue from the insides to make the chassis fit...

Yeah, I learned the hard way.... just call it a bit reliced... looks a great combo though and looking forward to some sound clips.

I'd say it was more age, and blonde is shit to work with.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

By the way, if you love the amp so much you're thinking about letting that Mesa on top go... I'll swap you my American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe :wink:

Haha that Cali Tweed will have a place in my stable for some time yet.

When I have the 1974 kit built I'll probably have to sell something. But that'll be months away.

Now that looks exactly how I envisioned it when I had it. Good on you for finishing it!

Happy New Amp Day!

Mike, Respect!! :clap:

I like my cars pristine but all other possessions beat to hell. The filthier the better.

I have yet to find metal corners that fit the angle for those top cabinet corners. Let alone for the two angles just below them...
