My latest projec...can't afford to keep paying tech high prices so I decided to just build my own . That way I can get just what I want..:-)
Started out to be a 5E7TMB (1957 Bandmaster) ..ended as a 5F4TMB Super amp....the only diff. is the speaker configuration...3 x 10" in a Bandmaster and 2 X 10" for the Super.....I used some old Mahogany shelving for the cabinet...it sounds AWSOME...40 watts of sweet tonal bliss :-)))

Nothing like good sound... I sometimes blow the cobwebs out the KEF speakers I have and get dirty looks.... Your joints (dovetail?) on top corners are perfect!!!!

Yes I got it used in 1972 when I was still playing. Had some faulty tubes which was very
hard to get around 1980, but around 1992 a repair workshop could order them and fix it.
Still plug in my guitar to cheer me up ;-)
