So lately, I've been acquiring gear at what seems like an astronomical rate because it seems people are practically giving stuff to me. The Jem LNG, Washburn SS40 an Orange cabinet and like 6 pedals have been acquired since Christmas... Now I've got this little guy! Or I will I should say; it's due any day now as long as it's not held up in customs.

It's a Soldano SLO clone built by my buddy Bancika in Serbia. It's actually the smallest wattage SLO that I know of at 4.8W.

Check out his site: http://diy-fever.com. More specifically http://diy-fever.com/amps/5-watt-slo/ if you want the build specs. I don't want to copy pasta here without permission.

Onto the pics:




Here's a demo and a build progression of the amp by Bane. I think with a little boost, this thing is going to be a monster.

Wut. A 5w SLO.


The orange and chrome grill don't work for me.


The heater wiring looked clean in the vid.

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.

Thanks guys. The Diamond plate will be a thing of the past once it arrives. My girlfriends dad is a professional airbrusher/sign maker so we'll have something sick to go in its place very soon.

Well hopefully it gets through customers soon so you can enjoy it yourself instead of some customs guy crankin it up.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

Quote by dspellman
The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

They obviously didn't play it very long. It made it to the US from Serbia in just 9 days. I'm very impressed. The build quality on this thing is just phenomenal. I'm thrilled. Can't play it though because the silly Europeans use different plugs and I need to buy a travel adapter...

Be very sure before feeding it the wrong voltage

It's rated for 220V. I'm going to have to buy a step-up adapter to convert our 110 to 220. No big deal
