Just got my new copy of GP and read the "All About...Point-to-Point Wiring". Although it was written in diplomatic lingo, I'll bet some of the amp builders are not going to be too happy. I own a Mesa Mark IIC+, (two) 1970's era Fender Pro Reverbs, and a Vox AC-15 CC. Amps with the various types of construction that they talked about in the article. So far, no breakdown issues with any of them as long as I have owned them. Sound wise, I just don't know if it makes a difference. I just don't have an opinion either way at this point on what makes a better amp. Can anyone point out some things that GP may not have covered?
