Aren't you worried if you bump it around it's gonna really mess up the finish?

gtr - I have another vote.

Put a cut-thru 'see thru' diamond plate mesa/xxx style on front and then run tube lighting or whatever it's called behind it.

That looks pretty cool, man... it's given me an idea so my VK will be useful when I eventually do upgrade.

I bet it feels pretty cool to say you have a 5/8 stack, too.

So you're just gonna stain the head, right?

I remember someone that gutted a V-18 and stained/lighted the head. There wasn't a front grill, and it looked awesome.

I'm sure you could find someone who can help you with the wiring for LED's in the head.
