Full disclosure, I'm SO stoked about this I just had top register on this and another forum to share this one with my fellow gearheads! This project has been a whole YEAR in the making! Before anybody asks, the builder wishes to remain anonymous as he's a good friend of mine. Why did it take so long? Firstly, I wanted this to be as accurate (within reason) and therefore wanted to get the most specific parts possible, down to the right color of the turret board. Some parts were so scarce that it took quite a bit of doing to get a hold of them. Below is a list of its components ; Phenolic turret board material Pink wire where vintage correct NOS Philips Mustard capacitors NOS Piher resistors & carbon comps NOS McMurdo tube sockets NOS Belling Lee fuse holder RIFA capacitors Vintage LEMCO capacitors Cliff Jacks & PEC pots Period-correct black V knobs Custom-made head cabinet with replica Radiospares "Vynair" fabric and smooth "Morroco" tolex ANOS GEC KT66 mid-50s grey glass tubes ANOS RCA grey long plate 12AX7 (V1) ANOS RFT 12AX7 (V2) NOS Mullard Blackburn 5AR4/GZ34 rectifier (JJ in the pic but it's changed) Larry Grounding scheme Marshall "coffin" logo (dull) Period-correct handle & brackets MetroAmp JTM45 Aluminium Chassis Alumimark Custom-Built Metallic face and backplates with proper logos Merren Drake OT Merren PT Marstran 20H choke (period-correct) Now, onto the pics! I'm no pro photographer,but I gave it my best shot. Even added a closeup of the cloth. To see all of the pics including some of the inside, click on this link ; https://www.flickr.com/photos/144376522@N02/sets/72157674459456260 Here are some samples. How does it sound? In a word, AMAZING! Glorious is another one I'd use. It's the type of sound that just excites you about playing. All of those classic sounds are in there. I'll be picking up some recording gear in the near future so I can make recordings of this beast. For now, you'll just have to trust me. What a beauty inside and out! Haven't been pumped about gear like this for a loooong time.
