    Well, it only took 35 years, but I finally have my 370. Cosmetically, it's in bad condition, but works well. I plan on a complete restoration. Does anyone know where I could find that white vinyl striping? I,m scared that removal of the original will destroy it.

  3. I'm sorry, I can't help you with the piping, but I completely restored mine (several years ago) and it cost me in the neighborhood of $50 for the tolex. Let me look upo my records. There WAS a guy in Florida who was selling tolex, piping etc...I'll get right back with you.


    Good Luck!

    *edit* Unfortunately I have lost his contact info but if you periodically check Ebay, he occasionally cells products there under "acoustic bass amp". Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but if you can locate him, he sells the actual tolex used by ACC back in the day.

    Congratulations on the 370!!

    Great rigs. Go to http://unofficialacousticcontrolcorpmessageboard.yuku.com. Tons of info etc. and some very informative folks.

    I bought some of the white vinyl striping when I restored my 301 cab about 4 1/2 years ago. I found the exact stuff on Ebay. I just checked and the same seller does not appear to be on Ebay now. However, there is another listing for what appears to be the same stuff from a seller in Georgia. Go to Ebay, type in white t-molding and look at the 20' x 3/4 inch listing. That looks like the correct stuff by size and looks. I still have my Ebay printout from when I bought mine and it bears that same description. I bought the tolex at Parts Express, part #260-760 vinyl cabinet covering black bronco. Good luck and enjoy. :cool:
