    Looking to pickup Lead 12 Head. I have Read earlier Versions without line out and Headphone jack sound better. Any truth to this Theory?? Thanks

    The only thing I like about the first version is the use of gold metal faceplates. They did carry over into the second version for a while. The first one has a fuzz type circuit added. I have preferred the 2nd and third versions. 2nd version has larger phier type resistors and larger caps. The third version uses smaller resistors and caps that resemble resistors. Both of these sound great!
