I've now had a chance to play my Strat through the new Vibroverb. She's quiet and sounds warm with clarity wrapped in lush Fender reverb. Totally blackface
. I'm unable to crank her up yet but can't wait to hear her opened up. Here's a couple of pics of the finished product.

Wow! How much coin for this??

Build cost (that's the parts cost plus BG's cab) totalled $2535.00. It's by far the most expensive amp I've ever built. I already had the casters so didn't count them LOL! I didn't scrimp on valves using TAD stuff mostly. Actually, I didn't scrimp on anything really but did use a slightly microphonic long plate 12AT7 for the PI (it sounds great and mild microphony doesn't much matter in that position).

You guys can go in the counterfeit business...

Well she's pretty much identical to the real thing! I think I'd better blur out the Fender badge if I advertise it at some point later.
I hope it sounds like the real thing too...
