I'd think that putting a board of wood over your pre existing top would deaden the sound of the guitar significantly, even if you were to cut F-holes in it. much of an acoulstic's sound comes from...

I think you could actually buy a 1960B for far less than it would cost to build one, speakers are pretty expensive.

You have to make sure that you match the impedance of your amp or you will break the thing. I don't think the 4 ohm out and the 8/16 ohm output are meant to be used in conjunction with one another.

What do you not like about your tone now? Is it too muddy, is it too thin? If you're looking for a moderate to high gain sound, use moderate to high gain on your amp.
