You're going to love those greenbacks. I may have been tempted to mix two greenbacks with two Vintage 30s or 70s, I like that cross loading, sounds good. Glad to see you got a straight cabinet too. I'm kinda done on angled cabs these days, the straight cabs project better to me than the angled ones.

The Celestion Heritage "M" Greenbacks are a Killah choice.

Alright, got the heaters wired up! I have about 3.5 hrs in so far and think that this is a good stop point for tonight. Man, I can't wait until I get this finished up, but I think I'm going to miss building it once I finish and will probably be ready to make another :shock: No one told me that I should have won the lottery before I started playing the guitar :D











Stay tuned,

Tim

So how difficult is it? Are you enjoying it?
It isn't too difficult, I haven't let lose any of the words yet or lost my cool. It does take patience and time though, to get everything run right and in the right spots. I love building this kit and I can already tell that once I'm done I am going to miss the build portion.

Please keep the pics coming. This is very Kool and you're quite the industrious guy. Looks like fun but I'm assuming you have a great deal of patience.

Hey Loko, you can't go wrong with the Metro Kit! I've built a '67 plexi clone and a jtm45. Both have NOS glass and Mustard caps in them.
The support at Metro amp is #1. There isnt a problem or a snag that the forum members cant get you out of. I also Bought my head cab for my 67 100watter from John at Stoneage along with a 4x12 and heritage g12m's. Excellent person to deal with as well. Also have a quad of m75/h75 scumbacks from Jim at Southbay in another 4x12. # 1 dude as well.

I have been hanging out at the luthier section. Gonna try my hand at a 59 paul. we'll see what happens.

Can't wait to see your progress and here some clips.
