So I am going to try what i think is a pretty cool idea. I am going to build a new box to house my XXX head. I will be updating this thread as i go along. So....... I am thinking of using laminated pine boards for the construction of this box. I was then going to use rhino liner (or some equivelent) to cover it instead of the shizzy tolex. for the front, instead of leaving a giant piece of wood, i was going to leave it open and use glass for the front. Tin snip the XXX logo, then screw that to the glass.
Any feedback/different suggestions would be appreciated.

Anyone else see the irony in smashing a guitar that says "peace and love" ?

I would actually route a slot inside the edges of the wood for the glass to sit in and glue it in there

Plexiglass will look sweet. I did the same thing to my TSL. Just dont scratch it!
Also, I suggest some LED's in there running off a 9v battery. I'm going to do that too.
