    I've seen the skinny wire wrapped tightly around thhe signal wires in later SF Fenders before. Never seen a "gimmick cap" though. I ended up using about a foot of wire instead of the usual "shortest...

    Depending on how the controls are wired, it wouldn't surprise me if they boosted certain frequencies a good bit. I'm not up on how they work enough to give any help there. But I do think having the...

    My Gad I hate that design... I don't know if you have the same layout as a Gibson Thor (I think it's just the 50W version of your 30), but... I had one of those a few years ago. Same problem - take...

    Weber will recone any speaker into one of their own, too. If you have an old burned out speaker they'll recone it to something of theirs that is close, just reusing the original basket, frame,...

    Not that it's necessary, but thelater Twin Reverb schematic will probably be closer. I can't link it or paste it from my phone but Fender Amp Field Guide has it. It's listed under 100W Master Volume....

    I'd use one of those 0_3 or 4 doodads. They look fricking awesome when they're working - Glow Supreme! I remember looking in the back of a Leslie that had 2 KT88s & one of them voltage regs. I found...

    What I could see on the FlarkBloot page made me think ummmmm... That's... Interesting... The combo had 2 speakers one behind the other cockeyed at a weird angle. And what looked like a 6V6 & a 6550!...

    The 400PS comes to mind, using a 6L6 to drive a transformer that drove the hase inverter pr something like that... But that's gpt like 8 6550s. Seems a little odd to me too. Tuts! Guts! We're...

    Off Topic:

    I think first to differentiate from the regular 65 reissues (the 68s are also made in Mexico). Also, what other Fender cosmetics are readily recognized as easily? Most players...

    Hey Chuck,

    FYI, those 68 Customs are neither Custom Shop nor Reissues. They incorporated some very popular & time-tested mods (tone stack caps, neg feedback, reverb on both channels, etc.) and...

    I didn't check the preamp but the raw B+ feeding the OT was listed as 420 in both. From there it should be pretty easy, and certainly not require a PT change...

    Edit: 1 resistor feeding...

    Looking at the pictures online of yhe guts, the fact that they are in a very narrow chassis & wired true point-to-point. And as someone who builds true P2P amps in recycles organ chassis, I can vouch...

    Though I say we stop all this crazy-talk about tranny swapping... Anybody wanna check the schematics after me?

    That link is a blanket statement that covers "most" amps. Comparing actual schematics is the way to go. The two I referenced are specific to the Deluxe Reverb. And the 1977 refetenceis the year that...

    Given all that other stuff that's been done I hesitate to call itva Deluxe Reverb anymore... ;)

    Given that the AB763 & 1977 Deluxe Reverb schematics both list an AC output of 330V & a B+ of 420, I...

    Is the switch at the far clockwise end of pot travel or far counterclockwise? I'm asking for Chuck's sake because I'm thinking this amp may have the "afterbeat" effect, which is supposed to produce a...

    Volume pull boost? Available between 77-81. I'm going to guess the Fender logo has a small "Made In USA" underneath? For the Intensity pull knob, see Mr. P Bass's response to your other thread.

    Oooh, sweet! There were amps to match, dressed like the Fender Solid-State series of the time, but they were tube amps. Might be worth hunting one down just for a set!

    And just for the future, you'll know if it's cap guts. They stink to high heaven if they're fresh. And if not, it's usually seen as a light-colored powder or crust that gets left behind when the...

    I'm just asking to play alomg with this phase inverter question, but, is that a form of Paraphase? I've never seen one drawn like that... Just a guess. Don't pay attention to me.

    Oh, cool. Thanks for clarifying. I do know it's a lot cheaper than Teflon & stays in place better to boot, though.

    That "irradiated" pvc insulation I think is sold as "Tefzel." Tube Depot has it in stranded, anyway. Lots of colirs. Good stuff!

    Hey All,

    Here's what I ended up with. Thanks for all the help! If I understand the schematic, I end up with full negative voltage (-56V) if the wiper opens? Also, if I turn the pot quickly it...
