    I like Samurai Guitarist... He's fun to watch, a great player, and he's got some stories, man... Lol...
    Anyway, I get a notice that he's uploaded a new video, so I click on it to find this...

    What a cool lookin amp! I dig how the pulley chains actually "work"...

    But more importantly, LISTEN to this thing!!! I can't believe an amaetuer built this thing! Well, not exactly a novice when it comes to electronics, but he is when it comes to amps... Unbelievable... And really, REALLY cool...

    Needs a different speaker cover, imo. Molded plastic flames don't really fit the rest of the vibe.
    Looks like something from Pimp My Ride.
    The head is ok.

    My wife's in the idea stages of a steampunk bass... I've got an Affinity P-Bass that I was gonna let her use as the base... But it's just not funky looking enough, lol... So off to the pawnshops we go... She's collecting old keys (our last name is Key) and sprockets and cogs... She's artsy... Lol...

    Cool that samuraidad built the amp for his son. I'll bet he's getting a lot of orders now.

    I watched the vid and the story was great. I liked the look of the amp but don’t think it is for me. Uncle Doug has built some Art Deco amps that are really original and neat in this vein and speaker cabs to go with it. It must be nice t0 have talent

    If I could build amps, I would... As for right now, I'm perfectly content building guitars...

    I can't take anyone seriously who's sporting a man bun. Besides that, everyone knows that the true James West is Robert Conrad, not Will Smith.
