Lovely amp, but very ghetto looking stand. Why not cover it with tweed?

Nice job.

Two suggestions though just cause I can never leave anything just the way it is.

1.  Trim out the x bracing on the sides.  It's not really helping and it makes it look unfinished.

2.  Get some foam, clear plastic or rubber tubing and slit it down the middle and press that over the cut edges to protect you amp.  You might have to glue it to get it to stay but it would protect that nice amp.

 Is the plastic sharp? I would have put a little foam on the edges to keep the tolex nice.
