Kevin’s blonde SE-5a stack

“Just thought I’d send you a picture of the finished amp. I am really pleased with the quality of the kit you sent, and the build instructions were excellent. I am already contemplating another build to restore an old Vox AC4 cabinet I have acquired.

“The speaker cab is an old ‘disco’ type cab that would usually be on top of a stand. I got it from a sound shop local to me. It’s always worth seeking these types of shops out for advice/old surplus bits etc. It is covered in Fender smooth blonde tolex, grille cloth is of course Vox cloth. It contains a 1970s Fane 12-inch speaker. I have to say, it sounds really good, I am more than pleased with the amp.

“I bought it for my 10 year old son, who plays his guitar all the time. We built it together – sometimes you need 2 pairs of hands and little fingers make light work of the 2.5mm screws. The amp box was made by myself using 17mm ply, glued and dowelled together then radiused.”
