    It is a a Hiwatt style turret board with 31 turrets per side...

    His boards are the best IMO. I have used several different ones and they were always perfect. You can get many colors, single turrets, etc...

    Just a suggestion for safety; you might want to remove the death cap on this and go to a three prong plug. It will not hurt the value of the amp, and it can be done so that it is reversible. Let whoever buys it later get electrocuted.

    Here's a couple Gut Shots of some amps I no longer own. One of the first things I do when I get an amp is open it up to admire it. I know, I'm weird like that, but apparently so are you! I love my TGP Brethren!

    Here's my old Star Sirius that I no longer own. It had cleans that were stunning!

    Thanks Carl! Yeah things are going well, got a new job, new house and a new baby, and have been lucky enough to hold on to most of my gear in the process.
    You and yours are always in my prayers, hope all is well.
