and some white birch veneer

That stuff's pretty cheep and easy enough that even I can do it. I got it from Home Depot. It comes in a roll with a heat activated adhesive backing, so you just iron it on. A little superglue between the seems and some light sanding makes a great filler. A bit of stain, a squirt of varnish, and it's ready to go. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that I needed to drill the pot holes first, before I iron on the veneer. After that I just cut out the veneer over the pot holes with an exacto knife. Easy.

you could remove everything from the amp... completely disassemble everything so you just have the metal tray that has the lettering, and paint over it... or use paint thinner and repaint the whole thing (custom paint job m/ )

 

sorry, can't think of much else except taking a brand new razor blade to it and crossing your fingers.
