    Built n flown RC planes for 30 year's so plan's n schematics are my fortè! Built my own cabinets and do all my own guitar assembly and setups and electronic's! Doesn't mean I can't be electrocuted! So it will be a safety first approach! My Uncle is an electrician and I built car's for General Motors here in Australia for 20 year's! So I've got a bit of experience in assembly (once again doesn't mean squat when it comes to amps!!) But I looked at and contacted Greg Germino and George Metropoulos about amps and the $2500US with $350-400 to import without duties and taxes was way over my head! And the experience of a mate buying a custom built handwired Marshall Amp replica year's ago from supposedly one of Australia's best Marshall plexi builder's that was truly the biggest piece of shit I've ever heard! That amp had to be fully rewired by another amp specialist who said it was an electrical rat trap! Waiting to kill innocent guitarists! So I figured I'd build my own (with alot of reading and a little help!) I won't be knocking it out in 5 hour's put it that way nor will it be plugged in until it's full checked out and tagged by an electrician as if I wanted to burn my house down or electrocute myself I could find an easier way to do that! That's why I come to the premier amp forum MARSHALLFORUM.COM

    Better safe than smoking (laying on the floor smoking from electrical burns!) Slowly the parts are arriving!
