    Has anybody already had one of these made with the right labels to go in a PR chassis? Seems like if a shop has already set it up it might be cheaper to go through them.

    It can be used with original spacing, but the verb and trem controls will be mid-presence-master...it would be nice if the faceplate had proper labeling.

    I can send you a partial template for Front Panel Express. It'll fit the Mojotone and eBay Zachmdhunter PR chassis. It's not cheap to use those guys though. It would probably be close to $70 with shipping for a single panel.

    If a guy had a steel blank like Zach sells with a chassis, could those be effectively polished? If so, it might make more sense to do water slide decals and shoot for something closer to a silver face.

    If you have a template in GIF or PDF or BMP most trophy shops with engravers can cut you a plate. You will need to drill holes etc. Needs to be good quality original.

    I've done a quick Inkscape program basic "Blackvibe" PR file, in Brownface style with numbers 1-10 to suit that type of knob. Delete the numbers if you want a Blackface FP. :cool:

    Based on the Mojotone PR chassis / FP measurements. :)

    monotone chassis
    18.25 x 1.875

    monotone fp 18 1/4 x 1 15/16
    18.25 x 1.9375

    You can edit it & use it for practice, logos are up to you. Brush Script MT is similar to a certain style! :lol:

    Check all the dimensions BEFORE getting a FP made.

    PM me if you would like a copy, the forum doesn't recognise the .svg file to upload.

    EDIT Added a middle control with master volume & presence if needed, deleted the verb, speed intensity controls.
