Making real progress!

Here's some before and after pictures of my amplifier:

DURING




And here's where I am today:



It isn't perfect, and I have a little more cutting and gluing to do on the back, including building a brand new back panel. But on the other hand, I've made some real solid progress, and it is nice that it is coming out more or less the way I imagined it. Good times!

Nice!

I had a band-mate who refinished his Tele by painting it metallic green and cutting himself a copper scratch plate. He would have shat himself over that amp, and probably have brooded over it for a year or two before copying your design.

Thanks Fishy! I think I did pretty well, although the corners aren't perfect. I WAS going to re-do it, but instead I think I'm going to build a second, larger cabinet for it.

You're a good person, you just screwed up; everyone does it sometimes. I understand that depression can get the better of you, so take the time you need if you need it, but you're always welcome back.
