I'm thinking about "relic-ing" a tweed combo amp.

Cosmetically, I want to go from this,



...to this,



... without having to gig it for 40 more years to get that effect. I know some of you might think I'm retarded, but I think beat-up tweed looks cool!

The amp is a Bassman RI that has been bastardized with board mods and speaker replacements, plus I bolted my THD Hotplate to the back panel. All for the better IMO, but I'd say the thing has NO resale value due to all this tomfoolery... thus a good candidate for the relic experiment.

I was thinking I could pour beer all over it, butt some cigarettes on it, drag it with a rope behind my truck for a few miles and then leave it for a few days in a smokehouse with the beef jerky to turn it darker brown. OK, I have no idea... any ideas?

Might want to consider some black coffee to darken the tweed.

Just a thought from someone who's spilled a cup or two of it in my time.
