    Hey how hard/easy is it to repair ripped/nicked tolex? How much $?

    Thanks :)

    EDIT: I just realised I reached 1000 posts! :bassist:
     
  2. I believe www.partsexpress.com has tolex similar to that on the Mesa cabinets. Dunno how much it is, bout $10 USD per yard I think...
     
  3. In my experience, Tolex is not fun to put on yourself (and it makes you look fat :eek: ). So any damage would have to be pretty bad to justify doing anything too dramatic.

    I'm not sure how a professional would repair small nicks / cuts, but it probably wouldn't be much more sophisticated than gluing down any flappy bits, and using a black pen to darken any wood you can still see...
