Tread title says it all.
Probably an European factory (think Dynacord/Hagström/etc.) rather than Americans which were not much motivated since a Market Leader such as Fender carried on with eyeletted boards for soooooo long ... so if Leo didn't ...why would they?
I think that even Marshall jumped fully on the PCB wagon before fender did.
Of course, SS amps such as Kustom required PCBs, although I remember repairing long ago (don't ask) Shure PA amps and Carvin G & Bass stuff , SS, still built on >terminal strips< ugh !!!
Got three Ampegs here with PCB the oldest is a Rocket II GS-12 about 1965 or 66.
Ampeg beat Marshall by a few years they started 73 or 74. My '74 1987 is a printed board.
