    My friend at Islander Guitars in VA built me the cab. It has a Celestion Gold in it. Just refinished and swapped the tubes in the head. Sounds incredible and super portable. In love at the moment. [​IMG]

    I bought the head brand new from Sweetwater as a scratch and dent item. I hit up Eurotubes and bought the gold pin kit from them. I pulled the tolex off and stained it orange, painted streaks of blue, sanded it down, and finished it with an antiquing glaze. My girlfriend decoupaged a custom cut piece of wood which replaced the grill cloth. I biased it myself. It sounds great. The Celestion gold and Deluxe are a great combo.

    Awesome. I'm a big fan of the gold with the blackface sound as well. Just gotta spend some time breaking in the gold, but when you do, well worth it.
