Still debating between lacquer and poly.
Oh hell yeah! Bangin’!
Follow up question: do these things get out of the house? I mean, if a bloke showed up with one of these at the local pub for a gig...
This is extraordinary stuff. It looks like the sort of work that goes into high-end guitars. Which I suppose it is!
I transport bits like this to jams and guitar shows [nobody would pay me to play] in flight cases for the heads not the speaker cabs. They are made to be used - big plus I've been told several times by wives at shows that the cabs were living room worthy.
That looks amazing!
Meanwhile I'm just trying to square the damn faces of the planks for the Bogner headshell I'm building so I can fit them together well. Why didn't anybody tell me woodworking was this hard?!
It's not hard - jigs, saw sleds and constructive cheating all help. Plus as a guitar building buddy once told me - 'Remember it's wood, you can always burn it and deny it ever existed!'
Lacquer first coat.
Two hours to the next coat.
Dang. Now that's a compliment with weight to it!
Well founded though...
Second coat of lacquer.
I've decided to call it Larry after an uncle that is a huge opera fan - because I just KNOW he loves rock n roll.:
That is some stellar work and a sweet head cab!
Larry now has feet, mounting screws.
Aluminum foil liner.
And an SLP.
But no handle. Normally I use brown Mesa style but for this one I think black will go better.
Best be careful, I hear once you go black...
Simply magnificent and so very tasteful work you do. Wow!
This thread is insanely pornographic.
That cab is insane - fantastic work.
Thank you all for the kind comments @stryker59, @lestera34, @C-4, @T Dizz!
I've only got a pair of JMP2203's left in black - they'll be next. Contemplating a pine 1960B - not sure how much lighter it would be than the pair of african mahogany B cabs I have now.
Amazing work Geeze...I love the new head but that 4x12...sweet Christmas...
i like the aluminum foil because you can throw some ribs in there while you're playing and they'll be ready when you're done.
THANKS for sharing your incredible wood working skills! That's a beautiful cab. I also appreciate your info about the Rit dye. I've thought about trying that before but never got around to it. I've used water based analine dye for almost 30 yrs with success but will consider the Rit dye on some project.
With respect, Tubenit
Stunning project you’ve got going on there!
