You can build amps as well?!!!! :shock:
I bought an Alter Ego from Phil. There's a Flashback on my board but the Alter Ego was more weirdness than I knew what to do with. Excellent sounds!
But soooo weird.

Upgrade pickups for the Starcaster, looked at the Creamery, Lollars etc but they were way too expensive, so went for Mojotone, hopefully these will do the job.

I purchased/built the TC15 chassis in August 2019. Not cheap especially with freight. What did the kit cost you in $NZ (if not a rude Q)?

Finally found a reasonably priced stereo amp to replace my busted old Sansui. Bought and paid on Fri, TM seller didn't make contact until I followed up on Tue: "it'll be sent today". Got a tracking number the next day but here I am 2 days after that with the number still not scanned. Hard to tell if it's Aramex or the seller being useless, maybe both.

I just wanna listen to my goddamn records!
