This is a gift for a co-worker. Flame Maple and Peruvian Walnut. I had a little trouble with blow out using the Akeda Jig. Reason enough “to practice a little more”.

Looks good. What kind of amp is that? Kind of looks like a Marshall.

It’s a clone of a Marshall model 1986 (50w Bass Plexi)

Ron,

This looks pretty good to me. The wood combination and grain is just gorgeous.

Well done. I am sure that your friend will love it.

Thanks for the post.

What a great idea. Somehow you should get the name of the amp manufacturer where the Marshall logo would be. Maybe an inlay. As a guy that has seen his unfair share of musical equiptment, this really grabs my imagination. Great work

Looks great. Is there enough ventilation to keep it from overheating?

The jury is still out as to ventilation. I’ve got a bunch of drill bits ready just in case.

That is sweet. I sure hope that aint heading for regular bar gigs. I’d hate to see that covered with spilt beer, groupie barf, and drunken roadie dents.

Doug-
You sound like you are all too familiar with Rock and Roll Glamour! I’m afraid that this is exactly where this piece is headed… hurts huh…

Thanks Lee.
