    No worries. I still think its a cool little head. Would make a nice bedroom rig with a 1x12.

    This is a great opportunity to put together a little bathroom rig for yourself.

    I'd imagine that the switches are for the lights/tubes?

    It seems as though he also added a loop, since the image on here..

    I think those are the output jacks for the cabs. Not sure what the red knob is for but I'll figure it out.

    Ok, I was going by memory, I thought there were 2 jacks added. Only 1. Maybe the dial is to dial the brightness of the "tubes"?

    would be nice if Mr Bower chimed in & solved the mystery for us. Nothing like having the man himself tell the tale...

    Either way for that price it at least makes a sweet decoration! The cab alone is amazing looking haha

    Me too.
    I still find it to be pretty cool. I wouldn't have sold it to GC for $20 but I don't know his situation. I'm looking forward to getting it here and firing it up.

    I don't mean to be judgmental but I was pretty sure this wasn't going to be your favorite amp from post 1.

    Haven't been here in years, glad to be back ! Question: I am reading this thread and have no idea what is meant by HNAD. Aside from that, I never heard of a MG10 - is it like a non-tube MOSFET which is one of the heads I have ? Fake tubes ? lol It's like a dildo is a meat substitute !

    There's at least one guy who converted a Lead 12 to a tube amp. I'm so tempted to try it!
