    Looking for a new faceplate for my Super Reverb amp kit I built that’s housed in blond tolex with oxblood grill cloth. Anyone know where I can get a blond style faceplate WITH the volume and tone numbers printed on it? Similar to this style. Any help appreciated!!

    Brown would be not normal for a Super Reverb.
    Whose amp kit is it? Some are intentionally spaced different than Fender.
    The guy in Thailand will make you one, It'll probably cost you $60-80 with 1 week freight.
    The Brown I got for my Blonde Bassman clone off Ebay was nicely done. I wonder if that guy would make you a Brown to fit a BF Super layout?

    Correct, not going for normal. I built the amp which was a kit from MojoTone. The cabinet is covered in blond tolex and oxblood grill cloth. I’m not digging the looks of a blackface plate on it now. Here is my amp as of now.

    The ones I was thinking about were from tubeampdoctor.com. Like the ones from mojotone, they have a space for a logo. Don't know if they do any custom stuff like mojotone, though.

    Noojwat in Thailand does excellent work. Aluminum with Fender logo etc. Ask him for a Brown style made to BF dimensions, maybe he'll make one. Pm'd you.

    Interesting... does he have any other faceplate type or it’s just Fenders?

    I don't know. He was quite popular maybe 10 years ago. He made amp chassis kits with plates. very much like the originals. I think he went off to do other things, but still will make faceplates last I heard.. I imagine he has data for the Fender models but probably not for some oddball amps.

    Nujwut, AKA Songwut Soparee only does the Blackface models listed on his home page. He still sells chassis kits. I bought another Princeton Reverb unit just recently.

    As far as I know, but check with him to be sure.

    As far as I know, he only has faceplates for the Amp chassis on his websites, all blackface.
