Just curious if super neat and beautiful looking gut shots means the builder is more reputable than say someone who has gut shots that are not as aesthetically appealing?
Here's a cool amp from a local builder that I would love to try out. The gut shots don't look like they are as meticulously arranged like, say, a Germino amp, or other builders who make the innards look like works of art. Is that important in terms of judging quality, longevity, or craftsmanship? I truly don't know. I've also seen vintage amps (e.g. old Fenders) that look like rats nests on the inside and sound great, but what do I know? I'm no amp builder. What say you, TGP constituency?
