Well it's time to take a short break from mafia wars and start a new guitar project. Got this from a friend. It's a kit with some decent parts supposedly. It was black and now is covered with wrap for decals on cars. Not sure what direction this will go; so here are the first pics before anything happens.

Tough call on the color.
If it were me, I would just look at a bunch of V pictures on Google's image setting for Gibson Flying V.

What I really want to know about is your amp collection.
I see you have a Fuchs ODS, how do you like that?
What speaker is in your cab?

What is the tiny amp to the left? The one with 3 tubes.

The Fuchs is a modded Fender Twin. Andy was working out of his basement at the time. Tha cabinet is a Bob Burt with 2 Eminence Red, White and Blues 12 guitar drivers from Andy. The little tube amp is a Emery microbaby from Curt Emery. I bought a mad scientist kit with it and it does everything from Marshall to Vox to Fender by switching tubes. He has recipes on his site to experiment with. It sounds huge through the @ X 12 Burt cabinet. The tweed is a Little Dawg amp. Here's their websites:

Do what I did, refinish it all white, not cream but WHITE, headstock face too, knobs, pickups, pickguard. It was awesome... then I sold it to fund another Lester.

He's my former albino Gibson Flying V:

Nice! Very Happy

I remember reading about Andy's twins several years ago.
He knows his stuff, that's for sure.
So does that amp have the classic Dumble tone?
Do you know which amp he modeled it after?
80's 90's? ODS or HRM?

Those Bob Burt cabs are excellent.

A forum member here had him build a 112 with the ancient pine barn wood.
Looked killer. Cool

How about something like this?


Tom I think it's based on the ODS as that was his only model at the time. He's a great guy and doesn't mind answering any of my dopey questions and showing me in person.

Stripped the contact paper. Here's what she looks like now. The Hendrix looks like it might be a cool idea. Fabgear painted a Monterey for me a couple of years ago.
Thanks for looking.
