How to Relic Your Amp - BBQ style

Just leave it on the Fat Matts Rib Shack stage (a world famous rib shack in Atlanta) for 20+ years and let everyone play it.

Matt asked me to help facilitate the amps return to respectability w/ a recover (i know, i tried to talk him out of it) so it'll be sent off to Mojo. I had to document this beautiful 1990s Fender Vibroverb reissue and its honest wear from twenty years of seven days a week real use.

How does it sound? f**king amazing.





Sadly when you allow unfettered access to your Fender amp, you must protect the tubes from the hands of the dishonest.



Can I have some BBQ sauce w/ that?

Dang ! I've seen some beat up amps 30 years older than that one that were in better shape.

I'm amazed the Fender badge is still in tact and didn't fall off the way the rest of the grill looks. I honestly can't tell if that was black or blond originally. Hahaha!

The stories that amp must have...
