I had been wanting to build a retro style amp to go with my Epiphone Emperor hollowbody jazz guitar, and I came across this old Philco table-top radio and got inspired…
This one was a little tricky, and had more math involved than I typically like to do with all of the angles, but it turned out pretty well I think. This amp started life as a basic Epiphone solid-state 10-watt practice amp, although I’ll likely do another one sometime soon using a tube amp as the donor.
It was also the first time I’d ever used a band saw as I’d never had one before (which I won from Ryobi with my steam bent amp – check my other projects), and that certainly made the Epiphone logo easier to make.
All in all, it turned out pretty well – and definitely goes well with the guitar.
