    After a day or so of trying to fix the crappy shellac job on my Blues Deville, I got it to a point where it was tolerable and finished it off.

    There's a splotchy spot on the top of the amp that I couldn't really get out. It's on the bottom left corner... I'll probably just find something to put there.

    It could be better, but I'll take it...

    Anyways, thanks to all those who gave help in the other thread.

    Cool! Nice setup there. Don't sweat the imperfections. You'll always be your own worst critic. Nobody'll notice. Just make some music and let the notes tell your story.

    Yeah. It takes me a while to figure out why no sound is coming out...

    Then I remember to take it off stand-by.

    Looks good to me! BTW-That room is way too neat! Why is it I always end up with a pile of tangled cords all over the place!

    Looks Ok to me! Add more "mojo" by allowing a ciggy to burn a groove in the top.......

    Best, Pete.

    When I did my Blues Deluxe, I ended up with a couple of thick spts. After the first time, I sanded them off, but when it happened again I left them. I have never seen an old tweed amp that did not look like that. Character is all it causes.
