This sounds a bit strange to me. The LA-2 is not a fet style compressor. The compression element is a combination of a LDR & electro-luminescent display. It can be simulated with a LRD-LDR combo but with difficulty.
The LA-2 is also a tube compressor. No solid state electronics except for the bridge rectifier in the PSU. Maybe they are referring to the Urei 1176 which a solid state/fet compressor.
See the schematics below. It would be interesting to hear what the menatone sounds like in a studio situation, e.g. on vocals.
