I decided since this is my 2nd solana to add a piece of granite to the top of stand to avoid bubbling of the wood...cost me about $50 it was made custom at my local granite place had it sealed, polished, and edges smoothes...

Here are the two tanks side by side...the new one is going to steal the old ones tinted glass from stand...i wonder why Current decided to etch that corney logo on the tanks glass? also i noticed many other changes ffrom the original like a curved dip in the back panel of glass for cords i think?

funny how Echotech was to cheap to just make a new MP10 controller case they just put an MP10 sticker to cover the MP20 one...cheap basterds...its not like we dont pay them a grip for this sh*t anyway...;)

just a suggestion for the iPhone - grab a hand held magnifying glass and hold the convex piece against the iPhone to get great closeups

Hey Dahnic i am going to pass on the hood. I think I will get the Kit from Solana with the black wood trim.

 

Where is the granite place? I am taking your advice and getting the granite top for the stand.
