    Just noticed the inputs are different than the 57 Tweed Twin,

    It says "hi/lo" , the twin had a "hi/lo" for Normal and Bright

    Anyone know whether the Twinoluxes is the Normal Channel, or the
    bright, or jumpered ???

    Also looking for a tube chart with no luck
    Wonders if V1 or V2 has been removed with the "missing input"

    any info appreciated

    You might want to re-read and clarify a bit. Also, what's a Twinolux?

    The Twinolux is Fenders new twist on the 57 Tweed Twin

    It has some added features, but not longer has 4 inputs
    It had 2 inputs for the Bright Channel, and 2 inputs for the Normal Channel

    The new version has 2 inputs total

    Wondering if Fender removed either the bright or normal channel, and
    the preamp tube that was used for it. Or if it's an internal jumper , and
    the tube layout didn't change

    The remaining preamp tube that was used for the bright channel is probably used for the tremolo. That's my guess.

    I haven't seen a schem but that sounds like the deal.
