Rick makes vintage correct, hand-wired, PTP blackface re-creations and can make one just like the originals or he has a few mods he can do. I am ordering a VS50 head because I like the flexibility of having multiple cabinets. He can do a 40, 50 or 85 watt version. Trem or no trem and a 3 knob reverb and also can wire up channel 1 to have reverb and give channel 1 a different voice--either a brownface or a mild compression/drive channel. I don't have mine yet but I will report when I get mine. They seem like great amps and get really good reviews.
I would purchase a TR off of Ebay or whereever you can get a good deal on one. Buy one that is all beat up but in good working order. That way you can get it cheaper. You shouldn't care about the cabinet because you won't be using it. Sell the speakers and that will pay for the headshell which you can get at mojotone.
