    Check out this 1979 Super Lead I found, the board is blue, is that normal? Take a look at the rest of the internals and let me know if they look ok. Thanks

    Some boards were blue usually after 78.
    Its got a master volume.
    Someone did a 1/2 ass job of replacing the bias caps without flipping the board.
    I know its a pain to pull all the pots & flip it but thats what separates the men from the boys plus the traces on these boards are super easy to over-heat an F-up.
    Can't see the top.

    It has a type of 1ww mod and part converted to master volume (see the 470k/68k link and normal channel converted to MV pot, the rest is basic NMV board with those mods.

    How do people generally feel about the blue board? I think it looks awesome. I have never seen one like that.

    The blue boards give me "the blues" but thats better than "blue balls".
