Balls VIP-40. The VIP is for Vox/Plexi and is a sort of taking a JTM/JMP/5F6A approach to the AC-30 TB. It's kinda like an AC-30 except both brilliant and normal channels are "top-boost-ed" and it has a linked input like a jumpered plexi. Separate normal and brilliant volume controls let you blend the two channels as desired. No Vox-style cut control because its irrelevant in this format. Cathode biased and no negative feedback to retain that Vox feel. This is a 40 watt version using 2 EL34s. Sounds killer and super fun to play.

Couple more builds coming along.

Doing seafoam green 50s style tele with maple fretboard

Also doing a Tahitian Coral Jazzmaster with matching head stock.

Both come will have lollar pickups and lollar spec pots. I’m quite smitten the lollar pots, never touched a tone pot in my life other than to turn it to 10 however the taper on these is very usable.

Any hoo hope you dig, should be done in a couple of weeks.

Well they don’t make them but they are made to their spec. Great for knocking off some of that harsh fender top end.

Thanks dude
