That's exactly the way Boogie started. A friend of mine has an early one - I think it was called a Prune Boogie or some such thing. It seems awful to folks looking for a stock vintage piece, but back in the day, when these amps were plentiful, everybody was trying to find something else (sound familiar?) and boutique companies didn't really exist, or were at least just getting started. Stuff like this used to surface all the time. Leo tinkered too.
This is what cracks me up - when everybody had the vintage stuff, all they wanted was something else. Now that everybody has everything at their fingertips, they want "the" tone. Sure drives the market though.
