Well the itch will be scratched (and wife approved). After some deep thoughts and hangovers, I am diving into a new build. At first I was going to source my own parts and stay within a budget but it seems that regardless, its going to cost about the same however I want to go about it. Its just whether I want to spend the money all at once or spread it out and get what I want from who I want. Sourcing the small parts individually does not save enough for the difference if I ordered something wrong and the headache to find that out down the road. (second build for me, first was a 5f2 that is AWESOME!) That said, MojoTone seems to have as good as reputation as anyone else's for about the same money. I thought about a BootHill kit but not being able to click and order is frustrating to me for some reason. I don't want to wait and call during business hours or pay more for the Ebay sale. Chassis will be from Mojo which seems as compatible price wise as anyone else from what I can find. I have seen that Mojotone's transformers can be a little sketchy but that does not mean that Mercury's really merit the money difference. That said I will more than likely go with the ClassicTone tranny's. I have not seen any bad reviews on them and the prices direct are not too bad. Speaker will more than likely be WGS (to be determined) for the money, just great speakers. Not full locked on this, just my intentions at this time. Tubes. To be determined. Cabinet I am having issues with.. Not sure I want to build my own to spec and tweed/lacquer it or just buy one and be done.. In all, its really the only place to save money on the build without losing quality. Wood, glue, tweed, and lacquer can be had well under the 250.00 range for one done already. I can build the cabinet, the issue is just if I really want to. Small parts and chassis is officially ordered. I am committed..
