THE 2017 RAFFLE JUKE IS HERE!

OUR 2017 RAFFLE JUKE IS A 1954 AMI F-120. AS YOU CAN SEE, SHE'S ROUGH AROUND THE  EDGES, TO SAY THE LEAST! BUT....WE HAVE SOME TRUE CRAFTSMEN THAT WILL TRANSFORM THIS OLD GAL INTO A REAL BEAUTY! EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DISMANTLED, AND THE MECH IS BEING RESTORED, AS WELL AS THE AMPLIFIER. THE METAL TRIM IS BEING POLISHED AND EVERY OTHER PIECE IS BEING REFURBISHED AS WELL. STAY TUNED, AND WE WILL SOON BE SHOWING OFF THE FINISHED JUKE! ("BEFORE" PICS ON THE LEFT, "AFTER" PICS ON THE RIGHT)

SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES!

WOW!!! THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE AMI F-120 HAS ALREADY BEGUN! CLUB SECRETARY/TREASURER FRED TOOK THE BOX INTO HIS SHOP, STRIPPED ALL OF THE OLD PAINT, INSTALLED NEW CASTERS, REPLACED ALL OF THE OLD, ROTTED PANELS, AND NOW IT'S ALMOST READY FOR NICK TO PAINT IT IN THE PAINT SHOP! MORE PICTURES TO COME, AS WORK PROGRESSES, AND THE GUYS SUPPLY PICTURE UPDATES! STAY TUNED, AND CHECK BACK REGULARLY!!

THE BOX HAS BEEN PAINTED!! IT'S A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO SEE IN THESE PICTURES, BUT ON TOP OF THE RED FINISH IS A BLACK AND WHITE "SPECKLE" OR "SPLATTER" FINISH. IT'S GORGEOUS!!

(THANKS MIKE HALLMAN FOR THAT FINISH!!)
