My friend Eddie Morin
produced a reproduction 1950 TV Champ cabinet for my Fender amp last
year. It turned out extremely accurate, both in detail and
craftsmanship. And it looked so nice I just couldn't bring myself to
cover it in tweed. So I gave it some orange shellac and here it is.
I recently had another idea to have him help me complete a Fender Princeton project I've had around for some years. I basically have a pair of Princetons but a single cabinet to house them. Eddie was up to the task.

|Attention to detail|
|Here's how it fit|
I was going to cover this in black or blonde tolex. Once again it was much too elegant to hide in wrap. Great work Eddie, much appreciated.
|Orange shellac just looks so nice.|
|Isabella helped me do the oxblood grille cloth. |
|Not the easiest thing, we did pretty good but not factory.|
|I created a repro tube chart, based on the other tube chart. Look authentic?|
|Here's both of them, 1963 vs. 1969|
|Still has that blonde look of sorts.|
