Re: Finishing Tweed
No disrespect to those who have used orange shellac cut 50/50 with alcohol, but I find that look too orange for my tastes.  
 
See the following link for my experience with Deft brand nitrocellulose brushing lacquer on my recently completed homebuilt Deluxe cab:

Also, Bob Sickler's site (http://www.rhsdesign.com/fender51/) documents the very meticulous work he's done on a trio of tweed replica amps, all finished in nitro. Of special note is the replica 'Fender Deluxe - Fullerton Ca' name plate from JayCo Internet Music. A beautiful finishing touch for any tweed project.
