Any amp book like this?

Any amp book like this?
I'd love to find an amp book  
that uses a single, real amp  
as a case study to teach how  
to build/repair amps. Stepping  
through a component at a time.  
Or even better, two amps. First  
a tweed champ, then maybe a  
Super Reverb. Every heard of

Hey Jim, I've been looking for same kind of BOOK!!... My 2 AMPS are FENDER DUAL SHOWMAN REVERB & MARSHALL 50 watt 2204 (w/el-34's)... Let me know if you come across any such informative BOOK!... Thanx Frank.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
