    With a lot of help from some of the best amp builders on the planet (Guitar Rocker, CoyotesGator and Micky), this is my scratch build 2204 clone. Took nearly 10 months with lots of trial and error.

    Gratuitous gut shot..

    Wanted an all white head and cab all my life. Bob from Sour Mash really did it justice.

    And it would still be just a dream without your help. I'll always be grateful for the hours you spent and the willingness to share your incredible depth of knowledge. I stand in awe of you gentlemen.

    This was the basis of the build. There are no instructions.

    Wow, looks great. Bet it sounds good?! Sourmash does excellent work for sure!

    What’s that small hole to the left of the power switch?

    I sourced some parts from them and used the diagram to work with.

    Originally I wasn't going to use the illuminated power switch.

    Since I ended up using the illuminated power switch after all, I ordered a new faceplate to cover up the hole. Here it is joined by my JTM45 and 1974X builds, also guided by the Triumvirate of Amp Godz.

    Congrats!

    But I agree I would love to see some shots with better lighting.
