    Hard call. It's nicely done and unique like it is. More exciting, I'd say too. It will look nice if you change it but maybe a little mundanely typical by comparison.

    If you have a small or even larger collection I'd certainly keep that one like it is.

    Congrats. It does look bad-ass as is.

    Also, it has more of a "real" creepy look than a superficial '80's trendy look if that helps.

    That's what I was just doing to say.

    I would keep it, but only if you (will) have a head to match it.

    I concur, add the skin to the head front panel = Bad-ass.

    If you decimate the front of that amp to match that cab someone needs to find you, and leave a flaming bag of dog shit on your stoop just on general principle.:D

    You might as well hang some naked lady mudflaps off it and install some neon too.:applause:

    I agree, fugly. I'm not a fan. can you tell? If it was mine I would redo the cab proper...but in any event f-n up that head to match the cab would not be an option.

    Definitely no for me. Snakeskin is OK but not on grill cloth. Not for me.

    Thanks guys ! different opinions which helps , I see what some of you mean by
    matching head but won't touch a hair on this head ,it still has the original Mullards , Neptical's spandex joke was funny !....Lol

    Think I'm gonna go with a black grill cloth ,..someone near where I live has a B cab Marshall cloth
    in very good condition so I might take it .
    I installed two G12H 55hz Blackbacks bottom and two G12H 75hz Pre Rola's top and it sounds Glorious !

    I've seen some hideous grill cloth over the years, and I'd put that "fake snake" near the top of the list.

    to generic looking. looks like the same 8 inch pattern repeated across the grill.
    if it wasnt for that snake skin looks cool as a cloth but not as a repeat pattern.
    looks like wall paper.
