Need to have a fang on one of these some day, Mike...
Yes I was thinking about at a darker grill cloth. And maybe a black vent grill rather than gold?
Yeah and I'd even go black piping.
I've decided to try & match the head cab.

How about having your amp builders name on the front, instead of the model?

Yours truly with the Yamano 61 Strat, into Mike C's amp. Now, shitty iPhone mic considered, you can hear the bloom and slight break up. I think this is probably the best sounding amp I have heard with a Strat, well maybe on par with my old JMI 30/6. The speaker is a Celestion Gold inside a Marshall 1974CX.

Please excuse the bad notes and terrible timing - son's 19th birthday party last night so I am low on sleep, and patience!

Headphones on.... nice playing, your Strat has that glassy clarity often talked about. I like my Strat best thru the SRT too but your LP Junior with the P90 also sounded bloody awesome when I was down! And then there was Murky's R8...

I agree with Danny, i reckon you should have your maker name/or emblem on the cab and the amp name on the face plate. The. You could take off the ‘by Mike c’ on the face plate and have a nice stylised version as an emblem on the cab.

I think “My 2c” would be the basis for a great logo!
