Randy does great work, my little E-bay find is looking great. It is almost finished. I am looking forward to walking into the next gig wearing my suit, porkpie, and toting this little beauty. Chicks will dig me.

Great lookin' amp! Hard to argue with that tweed look. Maybe it's my age, but I'm always content with tweed or black tolex. I like your other looks too, Randy-- like the red/vanilla and the natural stuff you've done, but my stuff always has to pass the "how will it look in the living room?" test that my wife uses. (Hmmm...red/vanilla would match the dishes in my wife's dining room hutch,lol!) Thank God there's guys like you out there,Randy. The alternative to you,Brian Purdy and some others is goin' down to your local store and shellin' out $1500 or better for a Victoria or Matchless,etc.

Thanks Jeff I appreciate the positive comments !!
it adds to my push to keep this going, sometimes I ask myself why I do it. Then I catch my head and remember I love the outcome, and I love satisfied customers, even though you can please 100% of people 100% of the time, the 99% keeps me pumpin!!!

I received my amp back today. I am happier than a Redneck on free Government Cheese day. The amp looks new Old stock, as if it was made in 1940 and hidden on a shelf until now. I don't have a clue on how Randy does it, but he does it well. I have another project I will probably ship him. I have an old Newcomb record player, tube, which was designed for playing at square dances, it has a mic input and detached speaker. I am thinking of taking out the turntable and use the vacant area to hold harps. I want the tweed with oxblood grill again. A guy can never have enough amps.

Your right each amp has a story :-) and you can never have too many unless you ask your wife LOL .... but if you know how to work her you can beat the system and have the best of both worlds.

I loved the way this amp came out really vintage looking yet like you say it had a NOS look to it. I truely appreciate you as a customer it was a pleasure doing it for you, and I look forward to any business we do in the future as well.

It helps alot if your wife is a fan of your music. it also helps if the equipment looks good in her eyes. Now, if I brought home a ratted out '53 5f1 with the tweed covering flappin' in the wind, and parked it in the living room and told her I paid $1600 for it, her tolerance could quickly dissipate.
