"Robert, I don't have either of the covers for sale, but my AM FM Philly only has the entire bottom cover, on mine it looks like there never was a smaller cover. Could you post a picture of the area that should have the smaller cover? Maybe…"

"Hi Mike, I had the same idea as you, and I happened to see your post. NIce!  In my case I would only need an inch or so and like you, if I paint it black or even try to match the cabinet finish and maybe add a bit of trim that would hide it…"

"Thanks for all the replies. Robert Feenstra had mentioned that his Philly sticks out about an inch in the back of his Wellington. Mine would too, a little over a half inch. Since I'm starting with a new face board, I was thinking of placing it…"

Michael Lawton replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion Will a Welllington cabinet fit a FM Philharmonic?

mike hadley replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion Will a Welllington cabinet fit a FM Philharmonic?
"Sorry Scott I forgot myself, I used 'That' birch ply as it was the nearest size I could get, the 1/4 inch stuff over here is all coarse filler inbetween the surface veneer, I used 9mm birch with walnut veneer on one side, used hot hide…"

Scott Seickel replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion Will a Welllington cabinet fit a FM Philharmonic?
"C'mon Mike, we don't use that silly system of measurement, we use the one that your country gave us ;-) Most of these cabinets are either mahagony or walnut.  I don't see birch as being close to either one. The grain structure is…"
