    well if the diameter of the cork is big enough o begin with. i can soak the cork in super glue to make it really hard. or maybe even those more waxy rubber corks will work better. that stuff is still going to be put off for a bit. im trying to get this working and set up 100% before too much of the add on stuff. i still need a real jack plate of some sort so im not pluggin in through the open back cavity.

    Maybe TWANG could hook you up with one made of tarnished aluminum or something similar.

    yeah... i have some copper plating around my garage but i would have to cut it and make sure it doesnt cut me every time i touch it. i was thinking of using the shotgun shells again but they arnt big enough. i may go with something a bit more conventional for the time being.

    The more dinged it gets over the years, the better it'll look.

    hahaha yeah that cheap particle board that was falling a part as i ripped it out to replace it in that amp you have now. it made good scrap. that new baffle in there now though it way better even with the kind of rough cut

    No doubt about it! At least it was good for something. :D

    One good thing about the new OS is I can use my camera on it! Don't need no steeniking deesk! 'Course I'll find it during my extended Spring cleaning. :rolleyes: I'll post pics over the weekend with the new knobs, etc.

    I gotta say again- Nice work! You really made that guitar yours & it was well done. :dude:

    well that was a concern. luckily i never really dig in that much that nothing (not even the strings) really even get close.
