Congrats Steve G.....so there is a 5E3 Deluxe in Leek....thought I could hear it from Stoke with me window open.
Seriously would love a 5E3 Deluxe one day and Flynn amps do one for 1050...only 900 short.
So how are you finding the Deluxe and do you still have the Pro Junior?

Also sold my Pro Junior to a mate inorder to make up some of the cash for a 1997 '52 "Coppercaster" but had already got a Valvetrain 205 "classic" (1955 Princeton 5F2a)
and as you say above...well it's the real thing an old handwired vintage tweed
circuit....solid fingerjointed pine cabinet and a Weber SIG8s AlNiCo.....next up is some NOS Valves one day from Watford Valves....a lovely Brimar 6V6 would be just the ticket.
Got to say though a 5E3 Deluxe.....WOW!

It was a local guy who does a lot of amp repairs around here, it's taken about 6 months in total as he's done loads of research and been busy with all his day to day stuff.

Valiant, with you being local if you want his contact details let me know, he's a great bloke for looking after gear and loves old Fender amps.
