Well it's been a crazy day, first off I finished spraying my plinths first thing, then a burnish around lunch time. Then home to rebuild by prototype MA-01 amp into the configuration @greybeard wanted for the show, checked it over to make sure it all worked well. Then back to the unit to re-build my LP12 into it's new plinth. I had trouble deciding, those of you who have followed my other thread will know I built 3 of them. I picked the stiped ebony/maple strings/black palm edging version pictured below. I'll bring the one with the ebony edging too.

Here is the ebony edged version.

I probably missed it, but is it your intention to do a production run for sale purposes?

Not really, they would have to be very expensive, there is a huge amount of work in them and the timber is very expensive and rare. It is doable I guess but my moto so far has been to bring products to market at sensible prices.

Still they are beautiful so I could maybe be persuaded 😀

I’m not in the market myself, but thought it might well be of interest to others. Yes, beautiful indeed, good work!

Stefan this is Linn they can charge £1200 for a piece of metal I am sure you can fix a price that brings you a decent profit , then again repeating that work all the time might be a little boring . See you Saturday .
