BEFORE:




AFTER:








so yeah, its done for now, but we are going to stain it or paint it or wrap in something soon. we just have to find the time. we just happened to have a whole day and a lot of boredom to do this much.


BUT WAIT! THERES MORE!


I wonder what happens if we turn the lights off? hmm

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

if he beveled the edges and did a nice custom paint job, it would be awesome. the glowing logo is kickass though.

Not a fan of the case...yet. But some killer tolex, stain, or a paintjob would make it better. I really like the glow-go

well like i said, im going to do something with the case haha. any ideas guys? i like the idea of beveling it. ive also thought about doing a nice dark mahogany stain. maybe even some flame maple vinyls or something

edit: in case anyone was wondering, heres how we did the logo:

we took the back plate of the 5150, put wax paper behind it, and then put cardboard behind that. we cut 5150 out of the cardboard and attached it all together. then right behind the plate theres a piece of wood running horizontally with a red led bar on it. the wire is running out the back and is wired to a jack on the daisy chain for my pedalboard.

i wanted to wait, its just that we stayed up all night doing this and we might not have a chance to finish for a while. it was just a random chance that we actually had the time to get this much done. i figured the good people at ug deserved a halfway point update hahaha.

but seriously guys, i want some suggestiongs for finishing it!

Hmm... a nice crimson stain on that will be very nice.

Pretty killer man - although I would have waited for the final product to post.

Alligator tolex = win.

Although, dark red alligator tolex (sure I've seen some somewhere) + black grille + glowing red logo =
