You have one of Jim's earlier 5e3s and I love them. You can tell 2 ways, the aluminum bar to protect the tubes, and though you didn't show any side picks I'm guessing that it's a square box.
Can u elaborate on the super/deluxe preamp switch? Is that to switch between tweed and black face tones?MyWonderDawg arrived and is incredible. Such a great familiar tone.
The versatility is amazing. The mid knob, Super/Deluxe preamp switch, and the Fixed/Cathode bias switch results in many classic Fender tones. As expected it takes pedals wonderfully.
Jim hit another home run….like normal.
I have emailed Jim about the Wonderdog switch and he said that it is used to select between the .047 coupling cap of the Deluxe Reverb and the .02 coupling cap of the Super Reverb.Can u elaborate on the super/deluxe preamp switch? Is that to switch between tweed and black face tones?
I’m excited for you having just gone through it myself and I look forward to your follow up. From the sound clips I’ve heard of the D-lux you are going to be very happy. I got an MXR 300 reverb pedal today and it sounds GREAT on my ChocoPrince. Take careWell...by Monday March 28th...I'll be a member of this elite club!
I have wanted an old Tweed Deluxe for a long time (I made a 5F1 champ from Stewmac)and was looking for another kit but since the kits are about $1000....I decided to go with a builder. I bought one that came pretty damaged from very poor packing, I ordered one that had an insane lead time (4 months) but backpedaled when I discovered Jim and Li'l Dawg amps.
I'm so jonsing for this amp to get here...a 5E3 D-Lux just stock really, nothing extra or fancy except different taps for different speakers.
Yay! I"m so excited I've been doing nothing but watching videos and surfing this forum for info...
I'll post back when it arrives.
