Look what I did to my amp!
No covering, the speakers aren't attached properly, the electronic guts are sitting on top, no control panel... what the hell was I thinking?!?!
I can do this. I know I can do this. It is going to take me a few months to afford to do this, but I can do this. Because no single part is expensive, but the whole thing done right with the parts I want is going to be a couple of hundred dollars. Luckily, and almost unbelievably? The amp actually functions like this.
