Check out Joe Bonamassa's bizarre Lucite Fender Twin amplifier

Taking Transparent Tone To A Whole New Level

Blues shred head and noted gear fiend Joe Bonamassa has taken to Instagram to share an image of his new Fender Twin amplifier - made almost entirely from transparent Lucite.

In the post's caption, Bonamassa claims the transparent Twin, which is loaded with two 12" custom Celestion JB-85 speakers and LED fittings at the bottom, might just be the only Lucite variant in existence, and thanked the folks at Fender for taking a punt on this wildly adventurous build.

Although the guitarist already has two different Fender signature amps, we really can't see Fender taking this one onto the assembly line, and it's fair to say it's probably just a cool prototype. Nevertheless, it's very cool being able to see the guts of the amp on display like that.
