Ibanez Tube King Models
If I understand the sequence of events correctly...Ibanez introduced the Tube King, got in a patent hassle with Butler, and settled the lawsuit by agreeing to have Butler manufacture the units in the US. The original TK's were made in Japan(?)and had a slightly different circuit.  
Does anyone know what the circuit differences are between the originals and the made in USA ones? I've seen comments that the originals sounded better and was curious as to why.
