I wouldn't buy it for 8k, but I like it.

Yeah, I'm right there with you. I built a terrarium about 20 years ago that could have been sold as a companion piece.
I like all things nautical.....except those:
Some pretty harsh statements here, but consider how much money over the years was paid to sit on those boards.
The problem with it is it crossed the line from cool barncaster-like to two drunk guys put this together in the garage one afternoon. Bring that to a gig and people will laugh.
That and the silverface-era grill cloth.
$7k5 to own, but a lesson to all for free.
That thing may be what other people see when they look at my lovingly crafted homebuilt amps, what I see when I look at Trainwrecks or Dumble-modded silverfaces, and (it hurts to say this) what I imagine non-guitarists see when they look at any vintage or vintage-alike gear.
Hey why not pull all that smelly old suitcase fabric off -- I bet the bare wood underneath would look better
That is the funniest thing I've seen today. Thanks
Think of all the GAS-tone those boards acquired over the years! You'd be hard-pressed to select any lumber that had seen a greater volume of famous GAS application.
I get it now , some one had a garage sale , sold the garage and made amps out of them, that is some butt flippin ugly!
No reverb. I'll pass. A Fender amp without reverb is like pull out birth control.
If Leo Fender had made amp cabs out of compressed cow she it, today there would be a thriving industry making cabs out of cow she it that had been DNA verified as a direct lineage to the original cows used by Leo.

But it is made out of "tonewood".
I have no issues with the 'old pine' look. But, there is another way for them to have executed this better.
Simply plane down BOTH faces of the wood, do proper finger joints, and give it a nice lacquer finish.
Better yet, Kintsugi the heck out of it, by filling up the gaps with something interesting like resin to give the cabinet a unique, one-of-a-kind look.
It probably sounds very nice, but it's laughably ugly and the ridiculous price is a major piss-take.
I kind of like to way it looks. If it sounds like a 5e3, then I'd also like how it sounds. The price, not so much.
I'm gonna pass.
I can just see a bunch of guys sitting around the boardroom table racking their brains for a new idea for the amplification department when Joe Schmo raises his hand and says..."Hey I got a great idea!". Since it was a Friday at 5:00 everyone says, "let's go with it".
Seeing crap like this is very discouraging to me because when I retire I'm thinking that I'd like build custom combos and a guitar or so a month to supplement our income and keep myself busy. I'd be lucky to pull off getting what a stock "Render" combo fetches let alone anything near what they want for those pieces of junk. Just saying...
