A friend of mine has fallen in love with my 5E3, and I can't say I blame him. He's asked me if I could build him one, but he hasn't got a lot of money. Thing is, if anyone deserves one, it's him. He's a fantastic player and songwriter. He's even been recorded by Willie Nelson and Ray Charles, for which he rakes in dozens of dollars in royalties! Kinda makes me glad I was never good enough to even attempt to make a living as a musician. Last year I built him a Champ out of scraps, with a cheap speaker, and he makes it sound like a million bucks. He still plays out, so a Micro isn't really a solution. So, what I'm thinking is, single channel, (though thinking about it, single channel would probably only save pennies) tube rectifier, home-made chassis, P2P, scrounged transformers and decent small components. He's a good woodworker, so I can let him worry about the cab. FWIW, he's primarily country. Any suggestions gratefully received!
