The SubGenius (aka The Low Rider)
« on: July 01, 2012, 03:46:21 PM »
I'm very happy with the way this turned out.  Tip of the hat to Haberdasher and his paisley themed etch.

As is common for me, the knobs are temporary, but these will work until I can get ones I like better.

Nice,  it looks like one of those super old tin boxes your grandma kept mints in on a coffee table.
These things put my waterslides to shame :(

Haberdasher is taking on enclosure etching jobs as well now?  You don't say...  8)

This looks fantastic!  I love my LowRider... such a funky effect.

First off, looks beatiful! Is this one of your laser etches?

Also, this reminds me of the whole church of the subgenius thing...I remember a picture of a guy smoking a pipe...Bob Dobbs, if I remember correctly. Just gives me flashbacks to a punk guy I knew in high school wearing one of those t-shirts. I'm thinking that could be a pedal graphic theme!

Hey Bret,

Yep, another laser etch.

And yes, the title is a throwback to the Church of the Subgenius.  You are the first person who noticed.  Sadly, it was difficult to find an etchable image of Bob (only certain images will etch well).

Ah, that makes sense. No reason not to put Bob on a decal sometime, though!  ;D
