That's a GAS inducing review for sure. $6k for an amp to rule them all.......

I'd love to build something like that - just need a schematic!

Friedman Buxom Betty. I have the plug-in but would love the real thing. It’s making me think I should revisit the tweed and brown era Fenders.

Well, like a complete moron I sold my Firebird pickups, then swapped my LP Special for a USA Tele, and now I’m gassing for a Firebird neck pickup in my Tele.

And also gassing for a Princeton. Which is sold about 2 years ago.

Why can I not buy and hold

Not a schematic, but they have some gut shots on their instagram:

Interesting to see those two little coils - I wonder what they are? Inductors maybe?

Inductors/chokes probably - they're up near the PT end. I could definitely make that board!
