Antiquing a Tweed Fender RI Bassman 10

Postby Ben Esparza » Wed Sep 16, 2009 1:26 pm

A guitarist friend of mine just bought a hardly used Fender '59RI Bassman 10 amp to get that signature blues tone for his gui-tar. I remember reading in one of boards about a tutorial on how to lacquer it to make it look 60 years old. Does onyone know about this tutorial or, at the least, how to do it right?

Those things get pretty dirty and worn looking fast on their own - when I worked at Manny's, our floor model always looked vintage fast.

An easy thing to do is to use Zinssers Amber Shellac on it. Definitely takes it into "old school" territory.
