Interesting thing is on the way.

A Hohner L59, which is also a Cort GE27, which is also a lot of other things. Mid 80s Korean Les Paul style thing made by Cortek but badged with whoever paid for a big enough order.

The one I have on the way was badged as Canora, which seems to have been ordered by a Canadian distributor (now defunct) as Canora is a town in Saskatchewan.

Basically one of these:

Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

Yeah, I reckon. It's just some light weight relief.

Pretty excited about this custom order from Reg. It apparently took 50 transistor swaps to get it right!

Yep, this is a Mark I build so I gather it's a pretty fussy circuit, despite (or perhaps because of it) being 'simple'. I thought it needed a bit of Reg's signature attention to detail!

Does it count as in the mail if I picked it up myself on a 7 hour round trip to Tauranga and back?

Got a 1988 Marshall 1960a with the white label T75s (my favourite speaker). It's beat to hell so you know it's good, and the car smells like a damp garage now, so you know it's doubly good. 80% of the screws are rusted and unusable, the tolex is hanging off, the grille cloth is ripped and theirs no logos anymore, but it sounds glorious.
