Installing tie dye on fender deluxe reverb

Postby smd1973 » Sat Mar 04, 2017 7:39 pm

Recently got a Courtenay tie dye for my deluxe reverb RI. I went to install it today and the stock cover did not come off like I thought it would. Has anyone done this with a deluxe reverb RI that can provide some insight? Thanks.

Is the stock cloth glued on real tight? You could get another aftermarket baffle so you would not have to tear into the stock one.

I have only done a 1x12 cab and that was relatively easy. I have a nice piece that would easily do both my Deluxes but have not, and may not, do the mod.

If I did I would get a new baffle, carefully take the amp apart, install or get an upholsterer to install the tie dye, reassemble amp.

Damn, now you have me thinking about it again...

I did this twin along time ago, like in the mid 90s, I did the tie dye myself it was just a large white tshirt. Of course Barry Sless made it sing! Notice Pete Sears with the Irwin Bass. Life was good that day! FYI this twin had a bad baffle, and has vintage Altec 417? speakers in it. Replaced the baffle and tied dyed it up. This twin is Heavy!
