How about a nice, white finish?
It is nice and surely some will gravitate towards the white finish although for the majority I think black is the standard. Perhaps anodized colors would be a hit? A platinum green, electric blue, bright red etc.

Dylan... Just out of curiosity, what would be an average cost to get an anodized finish on the chassis? Just a hint at approximate add-on fee... or even a range if you get charged more for non-standard colors. Please and thanks! :)

Custom anodizing is an extra $200 (and that's cost, no profit built in).

What are your other options? Is it a paint job or powder coating that you have done?
Powder coatings. And I've done one anodized bronze case

I look forward to being able to buy Buckeye amps without having to pay a large deposit and wait 3 months. :D
I'm glad your first name is Dylan and not Bernie or I might have a much longer wait. :facepalm:

If you want an amp next Spring you better order now. lol

I paid $455 late Aug.
Paid 2nd payment of $600+ as requested 7 days ago.
I'm told amp will ship by Nov 22
Probably see it by end of Nov 2022?
That's three months last time I checked. o_O

Oh yea, there are still some pending orders that will reach about 3 months total wait but new orders placed now are not that long. Especially now that I am switching to full time work.

Regarding down payment, 30% seemed relatively fair (local boutique shops around me usually ask for 50%).
