    For some reason I get a kick out of spray painting best up amp cabinets. I’ve done a couple of Vox AD50VT models in sparkle red and they both sold immediately. This Marshall G50R CD isn’t for sale but it was kinda grubby looking and needed some refreshing. I thought gold was the way to go. Usually I use the straight color first and then follow with the glitter paint. Both cans of gold glitter got stopped up so this one’s not quite as sparkly as I would like but I wasn’t going to get a third can. I think it turned out all right.

    Surely Marshall has done this. A fast google search turned op zero gold Marshall amps. Cream and white but no gold, how can that be?

    I always wanted one of those sparkly gold Kustom amps. Except there was a Kustom amp inside.

    I had a Kustom sparkly silver P.A. amp with 2 matching 4/10 speaker cabnets and a sparkly blue Kustom Bass Amp for a while.

    I love the old Kustom tuck n roll stuff but I never thought about gutting one for the cabinet. They're fairly expensive as it is.
