Just thought I'd share a little project I'm mostly farming out. My EVO II combo is probably eight or nine years old now and looks it, so I decided to look into redoing the tolex and completely refurbishing it. It's a fantastic amp and the first amp I'd owned that I felt I got 'my' tone out of. Unfortunately, years of gigging and rough treatment had pounded the poor thing into a pretty pitiful state. I stopped in at American Music, my favorite local shop, to see if they could do the re-tolexing in addition to the regular repairs that were needed. NOOOOOOOO WAAAAY was the immediate response, but, being the awesome guys that they are, they right away started to look for another local option. They didn't find one but they did point me in the right direction and I ended up emailing Soldano. A nice gent there named Bill said they could do it but it would be helpful if I could pull the hardware etc. So... last night I gutted the amp and pulled the existing tolex as best I could. Here are the first set of photographs. As the project goes on I'll update it.
