    Granted it looked better in person. I suppose if I had to do it all over again I'd drop the plexiglass, do a better logo maybe change th......ya know what fuck it. I WOULDN'T do it over again.

    I dig the traditional black/white Matamp heads the most, but the GT1 is on a whole different level compared to the 1224 or the Green, etc...

    Have you seen anything from Hillbish Designs? Theses one's look like they'd fit right in on a NASA console

    Imagine like a Matamp but it's got a Space Echo on top of it AND some sort of huge external spring reverb. I bet nobody could be peer pressured into showing us what that would look like.

    I like a lot of custom Mesas aesthetically. Basically everything with non-black tolex looks good.

    Benson amps also has a really cool old school aesthetic:

    When I build a headshell for my Bogner, I based it on a green tolex Marshall I saw online and I think it fits the gold front panel and black knobs great. Far from perfect because this was my first headshell but I think it is visually nice.

    This is cool.
    Somewhere there was a PA amp company that made 50's era layman style PA amps that had the these needle gauges. Always wanted to snag one for a conversion but the brand escapes me. I think it was too generic to remember.

    I'm also a wicker grill fan. Partly because it just looks cool, but also because when I was like 19 or 20 I was in a music store, and there was this Mark IV combo with the wood and basket weave. A guy there plugged into it, and I couldn't believe how cool it sounded. Right there I knew that was the sound I was after. (And here we are, with me never having owned a Mark IV :lol:). But before I die I will own a head or combo in that look. (Preferably a Mark IV or V.)

    That's awesome, interesting that it was done for an MG, though. Was that custom, or did they have a version of the MG that came like that?? Always wanted a Mesa with a wood headshell like that, but the cost premium has never been worth it, cause I'll likely keep the amp a few months and sell it :lol:
