Found this stuff at OSH, works great for speaker grills. Best of all, its $5 bucks for 6'' x 20'. you can find it in the rain gutter dept.

I'm completely new at this. I'm looking for some help with an amp I picked up cheap. I like the look of it, it looks like a toy, and I want to gut it and make a "stealth" amp out of it. That is, an…Continue

A real nasty one I'm redoing.. A Sound Research G-2000. Basically a Fender Showman clone. Damn thing is brutal, borrowed a friend's 4-12 cab and if you turn it past 4 it feels like you are getting kicked in the chest.
You did good on this amp set up. I will go get one from HF and then locate a speaker from some where. Really sounds great, both the amp and the 4 string
Here's a youtube of the CBAmp based on the innards of a $ 6.99 Harbor Freight "Mini Handheld Megaphone"... Added a 4 ohm speaker salvaged from a Rocktron practice amp and a jack soldered to the leads that originally went to the megaphone's mic element.
For what it is, I think it sounds pretty good. Makes a nice companion to the CBG in the vid. This was recorded on my laptop using the onboard mic and camera. No pedals, effects or processing to enhance the sound. Pretty good for $ 7... eh?
I gutted a Fender Mini Twin and put it in an Acid box. I used a good speaker and it makes a big difference.

Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org We'll find you something for sure....
It has a little mic element in the "mouthpiece"... cut it off and tied jack to the wires that it was connected to... red to +, black to -.
Feeling good... starting to drive a little, one more week off and them back to work 1/2 days.
Thanks, I'll try to get a vid done later this week. I'm good for about 1 hour at a time in the shop. This was a step into the shallow end of amp building... I'm ready for more.
