Here's a quick walkthrough of my first CBA build. I used the kit from cigarboxjunction.com and added a few of my own touches.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys... and thank for the tip Francois.

During the last build I discovered that soaking shiny plated metal parts in a solution of citric acid for a few minutes will strip the coating and make the parts look older. After that I soak in a baking soda solution and rinse well to neutralize the acid. You might want to do this to that hinged hook if it really annoys you.

Sounds and looks great!

Nice amp. I have made a few cb amps and they are fun little projects and uses up the little cube boxes too small for guitars or ukes.

Cracking little amp!  Punches well above its weight!

Sounds great, really good all round job, I bet there's quite a few on here not as technically minded who would love one like that. Make more & sell them.
