That's a decent deal for a headshell. His work looks nice. Good looking half-blind dovetails.
You'll have to do some drilling to mount a handle as well as holes for a reverb tank.

He says no hardware is included which means you'll need:
-chassis mounting screws and washers
-rubber feet and screws
-a cover for the reverb pan as well as screws and t-nuts
-a handle and screws and t-nuts to attach it.
-You probably wont need corners as it's a wood cab but pine being a soft wood it will ding pretty easily.
- being unfinished pine you could paint it, or polyurethane, or tolex it if you wanted to go that route.

I've thought about making and selling blanks like he's doing and selling them to those that want to tolex their own cabs and all the other work (mounting holes, corners etc etc) ...maybe someday

Hi George - are you currently making or have any stock of hardwood wicker short heads?
