Matchless Spitfire
I am building a clone of this amp. I have just about all the parts for it now and will start on it next week. Before I do, though, I would like to see some pictures of a real one, especially the inside of the chassis. Has anyone EVER seen any pictures of one of these on the net? I haven't been able to round anything up at all.  
 
I know how Matchless lays out the chassis on their amps for the most part, but a picture of a real one sure would be nice...

Try ACP. They don't have a Spitfire, but they do have excellent pix of a Lightning and others.

I did see the Lightning 15 at ACP. I would guess that it would probably be very similar to that. But, I'm looking for a pic of what the amp actually looks like, too. Anyone have any leads on that?

BTW: I does look exactly like the Lightning minus one gain stage and the tone stack

Thanks Geoff. I had a hunch that it looked more or less like the Lightning. It seems like a logical spin-off of the Spitfire. A picture of it would be great!  
 
Thanks. :)

Lots of pics and sounds of most popular amps at proguitar.de  
 
They've got several matchless models. There are some internal shots of matchless amps too if you want to get a look at the wiring.  
 
One of the best sites I've seen for that type of thing, don't know why more sites don't do a nice catalog like that.
