I got inspired today to finally start resetting the neck on my '55 Kay archtop guitar. The glue joint had become brittle, and the neck came apart easily. I now just need to clean the surfaces and re-join them... Much easier than anticipated. . #Kay #ArchtopGuitar #Luthier #GuitarDoctor #VintageGuitar #AcousticGuitar...

It's complete! My first full prototype is done, and works very well - i.e. loud and clear. I removed the guitar input last minute to gain better control over the actual amp, but with a DI one can plug in via the stereo 1/8" anyway, and it means less hassle...

Phase three; installing the amp onto the control panel and test-fitting it into the cabinet. This is now an old photo as I've re-done the board to simplify things some more. . #PortableSpeaker #EminenceSpeakers #DaytonAudio #CustomAmp #WoodWorking #PartsExpress #BatteryPowered #GuitarAmp

Phase two; dry assembly, holes cut for speakers, temporary installation and wiring, then blasting a few tunes to check everything. So far, so good. I still have a few design issues to work out, but hope to have a fully functioning prototype soon. . #PortableSpeaker #EminenceSpeakers #DaytonAudio #CustomAmp #WoodWorking #PartsExpress...
