    Can anyone tell me what this looks like. I noticed when I bought the amp that the FAT SWITCH was missing. Took it home and opened it up to inspect thinking I might find the switch loose in the chasis. Turns out this is a "Mystery Mod" HAND WIRED who knows what...

    I like the way it sounds. Would greatly appreciate any guesses as to what I bought...

    Thanks in advance...

    I can't make out much on the right side of the picture. The power section looks like a Marshall 18W.
    Does it have reverb and/or vibrato?

    Torres Engineering and Rat Valve Amps both have hardwired conversions for Blues Jr amps. Carls Custom converts them to vintage circuits. Maybe you can find a picture from one of those sites and match it to yours?

    IDK if it is worth more than a Blues Jr but I prefer this to the original PCB design. I hope you got it for a good price.

    Thanks... I checked those sites and didn't find a match but it looks like their work comes out looking similar. Good lead - Thanks for the info...
