Stunning work Bruno, absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

How many hours do you think you need to finish such a project?
Thanks,
dave

Thanks Dave,

If I only knew, I would tell you... I start, then make (short and long) pauses, rethink the design, return on it, etc... Depending on the time and money available... I never count the hours I spend, and I am afraid that it is not really countable ! For example, the 1st picture "At the start" is dated September 25th, 2014, the last ones are from July 17th, 2015, that is to say yesterday.

The cool factor meter just broke  :icon_cool:

Thanks for sharing

Thank you, guys !

Well, I don't forget that many of you built stunning pedals, particularly with etched/painted finishes and decorums that I am unable to achieve  :icon_confused:.

A+!

Hi, me again,
finally finished my supro 1616t clone. I recently done a lot of woodwork, followed by painting and building...
The cab is a copy of the gretsch 6150t version, and not the supro, as I wanted something smaller...

I made a version using solidworks, and the faceplate with illustrator.
I only used my spare parts this time. That explains the extra transformer.
the rendered version:


and final version:







cheers,
Thomas

I got a little amp from ebay that was in need of some work. It needed a recap and when I got it I realized the cab was in very poor shape so I put the very few carpentry skills I have to work.
Before:


 You can't really tell from these pics but the bottom was literally falling off...

Guts:


After:

I haven't traced the circuit yet or identified what this amp even is. The tube compliment is 2 6av6
1 6x4 and 1 6ar5 all branded NEC. It's a really nice sounding amp that gets loud enough and has quite a bit of crunch. It's very touch sensitive. Another one to add to my stable.

Some VERY nice stuff on this forum.  Wow you guys.  Impressive wood working.  This is my first attempt at a small cabinet using box joints.  I used a REALLY makeshift box joint jig which worked okay.  I thought it might look odd to see the ply's but it looks okay.  I don't mind it.  I now have a proper dado blade setup for the table saw which should make stuff like this a little bit easier. 

A proper handle from Fender is around $30 plus shipping, so I used copper pipes for $6 cause i'm cheap.  It's just an 8" Celestion…so it's pretty honky but it has made it on a few albums already for some choice "odd" guitar parts.  I had ZZ Top in my mind when I built it I guess.  I've heard they like the small amps.  Anyway.  Enjoy.

Here's one for a Monacor SPA-110PA 10'' speaker.



Haven't decide yet about the dimensions of the open back.

Cheers.

Here's my latest. Amp built by me. Head cab built by me and covered by Salvage Custom to match a 2x10 cab I got from them last year.
