    Haha! You´re so right! :)

    This got me thinking! I guess a lot of the mint or near mint amps that we see nowadays probably looked like this 20 years ago! :)

    OMG! I can see the boards, filter caps, sockets and pots, switches, that's about it.
    Impressed how brown the sound you were getting in your clips! Everything on 10 with hot pups or a pedal?

    No pedals! I actually don’t owe a single one. Except wah pedals (a few Marshall Super Wahs of cause :). )

    No this is just straight in old 50’ 59 conversions with ca 7,2k original PAFs

    Heavy strings...

    All values seems “vintage correct” for Jtm45s

    Will measure them up more correctly or actual values.

    Sort of glad I didn’t buy this one as the former owner according to the technician that restored the amp 20 something years ago had this picture. However the former seller only mentioned that it used to have a master volume and that some non original parts were removed and replaced by vintage ones... sort of true but...

    It was pretty easy for me to get this pic I just called the number on the back to the guitar shop in Berlin stating it had made the restoration. They said the guy who did it had retired but gave me his number...
