Sunburst with a hot little amp

Here is the 3-Tone Sunburst that I showed the step-by-step finishing process on the DIY Finishing thread.  This guitar’s acoustic sound is spectaticular.  It has the most sustain of any Strat I have ever played.

It is with one of my favorite little amps. The amp is 1972 Princeton Reverb in a custom built cabinet from Larry Rodger.  The cabinet is loaded with a 15” Weber speaker and  it screams.

Ah, the venerable "target burst."  Not my cup of tea, but hey, whatever floats your boat! :kewlpics: 

On a side note, what does a Princeton with a 15 sound like?
Yes I much prefer the 2-Tone Sunburst but this is what the customer wanted. It really looks much better in person because you can see the grain better. I also think 2-Tone Bursts look better on Swamp Ash.

The 15’ Weber speaker sounds so good in a Princeton.  I got the idea from an early edition of the ToneQuest Report It has more bottom end and headroom. It goes to 12 real good.  On the down side I do not like the way the amp records, I much prefer it in a live situation.  I would choose a 10 or 12 inch speaker in the studio.
