Recently bought a second SV from a friend. The amp has no bright cap.
I did the best I could to make the no cap amp sound like the stock amp.
My Weehbo drives add some bass. I hate bassy tone when I'm on the neck pickup so the bass
is off on both amps.
I had to use only the high volume 1 with no channel bridge to get close to the stock amp.
The single notes are still fuller than stock.
Some of the sizzle is missing but it can be dialed back in with the presence knob.
Here's how different they turned out:
