Ian Fowles, guitarist for the Aquabats and Gerard Way’s band, loves customizing his instruments, and we’ve seen him do so on a special Kurt Cobain Jaguar and a Telecaster that bears a special color he calls “Fry Sauce.”
Another one of Fowles’ favorite personal projects is a completely homemade Fender Champ head. For those that think this is a Fender Super Champ X-2 HD head, they’d be wrong.
Fowles actually came up with the idea after taking the speaker out of one of his older Champ combo amps and putting it into a 2×12 cabinet.
“The tone just opened up for me. It was like a whole new amp,” Fowles said. “So I thought, ‘Why don’t I just make the Champ into a head?’”
