it's alive!!!!!!!
Well guys, Gary and I finished the amp. All in all, it went smoothly. And by the way, this was not one of Bruce's kits. However, Bruce answered many questions and even went out of his way to help us. He deserves many thanks. If anyone is interested in viewing pics of this amp visit:

There is one sound clip so far. This is only the beginning.

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.

Gary,  
the general opinion around the boards is not to use the ground polarity switch you have installed for safety reasons. You should probably remove it and install a standby switch in it's place.

No problem. I wanted to keep it original but after the build was complete, I regretted not using a standby switch. Oh well, it can be changed easily enough. Thanks for checking out our website.

Thanx for the props on that "humbucker" version of an SRV tune....and as far as the ground switch....all old amps have it...I dont see it as a hinderance, but if the general population thinks its dangerous, id replace it...dont want to fry my rhythm guy. :)  
 
 
 
My '66 Tremolux's ground switch has taken the hum out of the amp on numerous occasions, but thats all it's done.  
 
 
What did everyone think of Joel's Pipeline demo on the 5E3 clone?
