    Top is Sparky faceplate
    Bottom is a 1966 JTM 45 London GT/Music Ground replica panel bought off Reverb.
    My research suggests the input placement's look off (too close together) for a 66.. I can slightly lower the bottom inputs and some originals had a off center "Inputs" script.

    Would this be usable for a 64/65 Clapton Block logo? Its really my only option unless someone kindly wants to sell me a Sparky 45 plate :) ?
    Color look authentic?

    The bottom one looks quite close in terms of script and proportions, the top one has better colour to match the originals I have, but they all vary a little.

    Thanks fellas,
    Is it just me or does the London GT panel's high/low inputs look really close together? More similar to a inconsistent early sandwich/offset.

    Yes, the vertical spacing between the Input jacks is too close. Also, the bold text for INPUTS, 1, 2, and JTM 45 looks a bit too heavy.
