A buddy who enjoys old tube tech put together this Deluxe clone a year or so ago. Built the cabinet, chassis, all hand wired. Not exactly all Fender specs, but that’s ok. It sounds so good. He’d been wanting me to take it home and try it out. I knew what would happen if I did. Yep, NAD.

Congratulations! It looks like a well built amp. I will make one recommendation that will help with the amps' dependability....move that small, black bypass capacitor that is sitting directly on top of the large cathode resistor on the end of the board closest to the power transformer. That resistor get's pretty hot when using the amp and it will cook that small capacitor over time. Moving it to the side of the resistor and giving it some air space will prolong it's life considerably.
