Help identify these La Scalas

Recommended Posts

I am in love with these La Scalas and would like to found out "how they did it" finiis, veneer (oak?), grill support and all the other details. This is the look I am after for my really beat up 1976 La Scalas. Thanks to all.

Looks like a custom knockoff to me.

 

Veneer would be very difficult inside the bass bin, its probably best to disassemble and veneer the panels that way or build new ones with pre-veneered plywood sheets.

Matthews did several with the same theme. He often called them La Belle or La Bella (LS + Belle)

I know he did at least 4 different versions. All kinda cool! Pretty sure he used the cane grill cloth for all of them.

post-2142-13819247217712_thumb.jpgHere's how you do the fronts.  Over lay the plus with a 3/4" wide strip of whatever you veneer with. 

 

 

Looking at the bass horn grilles, I'd say only the visible parts are veneered.
