Ok, I know this isn't a rack, but I just figured out (with HUGE help fromTI4-1009) how to post pictures. My latest 'grab n go'. ImageImageImage

UPDATE....Well, after months/years? :? of comparisons and listening over and over, I finally picked up a good Mc2100 :cool: (although I will keep the QSC PLX 1202 as a back up).
I feel the Rocktron V300 and the MosValve get very close too, but not dead on. Anyway, I built a cab for the Mc2100 and am loving the tone.
Should have gotton a McIntosh a couple of yrs ago. I was trying not to deal with the McIntosh weight, but with it in it's own cab with handles on each side, I can get someone in my band to help! :lol:

So, after thinking about this for at least a decade or more I decided to get a custom guitar and build a Jerry inspired rig. I’ve been an acoustic player for forty years and never owned an electric guitar. I would like to say thanks to this whole forum for being here and there are a few people that stand out for info, Brad Sarno, Waldo to who I’ve haven’t had any contact with but have used his site and drawings to build a few things and is a great asset to everyone here, and so many more. Sometimes it seems a little over the top but all and all it’s a great VIBE! So I spent the better part of the winter gathering all the components together and then built the cab’s and rack. Here is my new rig although there is bit more to do.

Welcome NQL- and what a great job you did on your rig. Could you provide some additional info? Of particular interest - how did you rack your mc2105, and what are the blue switch boxes mounted on the lower part (above the shelf)?

Again awesome job - hope to have a similar setup built this summer!

NQL, Very nice. Am really diggin' the rack spacers. Everything stacked up on it's own dolly. Looks like a drawer at the base of the rack. Is there a light under the SMS, or is that just the lighting in your shop?

Thanks for the complements.
Jckstraw: The amp is mounted with panlocs onto ¼” aluminum plate. The box with the switch is a splitter from Waldo site for the Peterson strobe tuner and the inside box is for the OBEL. Both boxes are mounted using bicycle chain links
Gmchart: I think that just the shop light although the Furman has lights that would do the same effect and the drawer was a way to use up space and make the rack the same height as the cab’s. The rack spacers are maple that were machined for banjo rims and the inlay is purfling and rosewood binding from my first acoustic build.

wow.. NQL that is gorgeous...

btw does anyone here have some general guidance they can offer on basic dimensions:? or other recommendations like wood types, bracing, etc?


Going to try my hand as a completely clueless novice at making a rack. Have my thoughts on one with wheels attached, will put a mesa 50/50 or mac on the bottom sheld, then tuner / sms at top and some shelves in between. Could I make it out of teak? want to use a cool looking wood.

Thanks!

Love the GCX.
I'm spoiled by one, and will never look back. Wonderful device.

Nice stuff here. Great ideas & creativity.
