    Yep. Yet another Blues Deluxe Reissue. I've had 3 before, keep trading or selling them away. I think maybe I ouhta' just hang on to one so I found a nice one and it's already set up in my office space corner.

    Woo-hoo.

    Love my Blues Deluxe. Are you going to lacquer the tweed to keep it sealed and looking good?

    There’s a tutorial out there somewhere on how to do it. I did mine years ago and it still looks new. I used amber tinted shellac brushed on and then nitro clear Mohawk spray can 3 coats to finish it up. Kinda fun as you get to take it all apart.
    Quick, easy project.

    It can certainly still get that way even if it’s sealed up. It just doesn’t get that gross look to it and tends to not smell like cat pee.
