This latest guitar amplifier project started off as a limited edition (cream w/black face) Fishman Loudbox Mini Pro – which I got a killer deal on because part of what made it a limited edition – the cream tolex, was completely trashed.
So I whipped out this amazing piece of spalted hard maple I’ve been holding on to for months for just the right project.
Usually, you’re lucky to get a good bit of one type of figure in a piece of hard maple – but now I remember why I was saving this piece.
It’s got very well defined black line spalt, it’s got some flame, it’s got some waterfall – it’s got a bit of everything. I almost want to keep it for myself.
I think it turned out pretty well. It’s going to make someone a really kick-ass acoustic coffee-shop gig amp.
