FS: x0x w/custom sparkle paint and wooden end caps

by luthergr on Tue Mar 01, 2011 2:20 am

I'm selling a very nice-looking x0xb0x.


The case was painted with House of Kolor auto paint and clearcoated using a SATA II paint gun. The paint is a special super-sparkle silver metal flake. It looks reminiscent of Kustom amps or 70s boats.

I made custom poplar wood cheeks for it. I routed out the profile and cut them out on a table saw, then sanded them rounded and stained/finished them. They attach with small countersunk bolts.

I sourced all the parts myself from reputable sellers and did all stuffing/assembly myself. The firmware is Adafruit. The only mod is the bass boost caps. Everything is working nicely and it sounds great.

More photos here:
There are a few very minor scratches in the panels. Close-ups included.

I'm asking $600 including ground shipping to US. I'll ship elsewhere, but I'll be pickier about payment methods from other countries. I'm offering it here and AH first, but if it doesn't sell by Tuesday afternoon I plan to list it on eBay.

Please PM me if interested.
