Whew, after many months of sourcing parts, reading through amparage posts, diagrams, etc and assembly, I finally finished and tested it this past weekend. I was prepared to go back to the drawing board and would have been happy if any sound came out but no.....it sounded great from the first fire up! Very little hiss and the tone of an amp that I would seriously pay a couple Gs for. I'm beside myself. Cost less than $600 so far. I used Allyn's chassis and trannys (Pacific) and basically all the parts listed in the ampgarage build checklist(except Mallory electrolytics). Not sure about the cab yet, but I knew I didn't want the wood faceplate. Had this one made by BNP Lasers. Did I mention it sounds great?
