As a fan of Peavey’s Vypyr series I felt that this modeling amp should look as good as it sounds.

The result was a classier, more vintage looking amp in my opinion.

Here I’ve documented the process of transforming my crappy low end budget guitar into something much more interesting and personal. This project was inspired by Tony Iommi’s guitar “Old Boy.” If you don’t know, Iommi was the guitarist of Black Sabbath and “The true father of metal.” Wanna know more?
