    Yeah, semantics. Many newer builders seem to think board builds are point to point when in fact, they are not. True PTP builds have much shorter leads than the same circuit wired onto a board. Just sayin’.

    I think the wiring on the OP's amp looks great. I find turret boards more relaxing to look at; maybe it's just me. Here's some PTP in my Gibson '63 Discoverer, because only a Gibson is confusing enough...

    I definitely want to buy a Dr Z amp one day. Have seen most of his videos and I greatly respect the man and the products he puts out. Thanks for the pix!

    Many thanks. I will for sure. There was an interesting video with Dr.Z explaining the genesis of the amp.
