    I just got my kit in the mail today and populated the board and put a lot of parts on the chassis. I had to get a little creative as some rivets were missing. Here's The Boards for now, chassis pictures when my roommates aren't sleeping, to be continued...

    Congrats, it's great you finally got the kit.

    Especially since this is a complex amp, may I humbly suggest a test-as-you-build sequence? Populating the board first is what 95% of us do, but I finally found a much smarter, more logical, and ultimately easier safer build sequence courtesy of master builder Steve Luckey (see reply 3 in this thread).

    I had been pasting my slightly Rob-ified, Fender-ized version in these posts, but it runs to over a page, so if you have Word, let me just give you a Dropbox link. Let me know if this doesn't work.

    Great idea, thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I've built 3 kit amps, but I know this one is going to be the most challenging so far, with more room for error. But this startup procedure would've saved me quite a bit of time on the 5E3 I finished up a couple of months ago.
