Very nice work.
Is it safe to assume that all of the electronics came from an existing amp that you re-skinned with the woodwork?
I’m curious because I have an acoustic / electric guitar that I would love to plug in but I don’t have an amp. This inspires me to go find a fixer-upper amp and do what you did here.

thanks DustMaster
no i did not take the parts from an existing amp, my brother actually bought a kit and put the whole thing together him self, but I am sure that would work to.

Nice project! I’ve always wanted to build my own amp but haven’t found the time – yet.
