I experimented with a painting & weathering technique to give this amp an old, worn out look. I'm not satisfied with the outcome. The amp uses the "blue/black" circuit board that everyone is drooling over. Rather than scrapping it, I'm offering this amp at less than parts cost. Uses shielded input wiring and a YJ volume pot. (sounds eerily similar to the Alps blue velvet) Includes a 12V 5A power supply.
