    I had an Epi Blues Custom 30 that never sat well with me. So I decided to gut it. I was going to go with a JTM45, but I decided to go a tiny bit ballsier and tighter with the EL34's. I went with a MetroAmp 1987x reissue upgrade board, since I was dropping it into an existing chassis. The preamp side looks a bit messy, but it's quiet and delicious.
    This thing is a BEAST!!! I put the master volume in it, because it's just SO loud. I can't wait until I can get the WGS Green Beret and the Reaper... YUM YUM!

    I like the way you ran the black wires on top of the board and under the components. I have never noticed that done before. I will have to try that on my next build. Very cool, Trevorus!
