    You mean the model 4 amp? I did that with the Micro Cube yesterday to test that the power amp section was working. I'm afraid to try it with the little Guild because it might sound good and invalidate my inebriated ranting.

    BTW I was making myself a cocktail because I need a break from thinking and my wife asked if I was going to work on the amp some ore. I replied that no, amps are like handguns: you don't work on them when alcohol is involved.

    Uh.
    The adderol must have worn off.

    "Alternatively, you could just go the ultra-relic route with it. Basically go for a look that says the amp was on fire and they put it out using belt sanders."

    I might have to punt this one to an expert. Neither schematic looks right to me. This amp has two 12AX7s and to me it looks like both triodes are in use on both of them which is not reflected on either schematic. I can trace a schematic and I've got all great tools, but as I've said before, I'm no EE, and I think I've gotten to the limit of my knowledge and abilities when it comes to amps. What's killing me is that there's nothing visually wrong, and the amp worked great before I cleaned it. The only thing that happened was the volume seized, and that moves freely now, but what I'm seeing isn't reflected in either schematic so I don't know if it's right.

    Also the tone switch just hurts my head no matter which schematic I look at.

    Default, you want a whack at it? I know you're crazy busy but I'm happy to drive it at least close to you.
