Oh I'm serious. I have the schematic for it drawn up already, and a turret layout drawn. I have a couple other projects I have to finish first and then It's happening. I got the iron spec'd for it, I even have a chassis already. It's basically the power section from a 5G9 Tremolux with the Power tube bias Trem, and then a 3 input (norm, bright, both) Model T pre and NFB section with presence pot and a "Raw" pot which allows you to change the NFB value for a more wide open and. .well raw.. sound. The Phase Inverter section is basically the same so I'll probably use the Model T values. It won't be quite the same because 6V6's have different sonic characteristics when you push them vs the bigger bottles, but it'll be the same ballpark and it should sound huge.

As for selling stuff, it's never been my aim to sell anything I make for music purposes. I mean I could sell one or two or something if it works out nice, but I've never been into building stuff to sell. It gets gross and you have to deal with warranty and people doing dumb shit and I just don't want to go there. Besides, I only wire stuff up neat enough to not be noisy, trust me you don't even want to look in some of my pedals :no: .. Like the Parallel Universe 2 (thanks Colin) .. it's no good in there.. but it sounds good and it works :thumb:

Great to hear! I will be excited to see you post it in the future i hope. Like i said, that would be a killer amp if you get it to work out right. I am sure it will be tons of fun to do and play

I just picked up this G-100 a few days ago for super cheap. I really like it so far. I was looking for something quick to handle baritone better than the fender blues deluxe that's followed me since I first picked up guitar, and for the money I'm not sure I could have done much better.

I actually thought it was a g-18 in the store at first too. The 100w seems kind of crazy into a small 1x10" cab, and I think it actually breaks up at the speaker before anything. I'm gonna throw in an eminence beta 10a to experiment with that, hopefully it's sick!

100 watts is crazy for that little guy! yeah the 8" speaker in the g-18 can barely handle the amp being cranked, but it sure sounds sweet.

100 Watts? What kind of Power Tubes does it have? It must weigh like 100 lbs!

No tubes at all! It's solid state! I think it weighs maybe like 30-40lb?

Ah, well that makes sense. I just automatically assume tube when I see older Ampeg combos! Forgive my ignorance to this model!
This is the one I want:

Such a sweet unit. :drool:

New head day, I picked up this ampeg v4. Can't wait till practice tomorrow to open her up a little more. most of the writing on the control panel is gone. Converted to 6l6's. It's heavy but not much more than my mesa head.

Was that the Wood Soul rehoused V4 head? Because I remember my broke ass lusting over that reverb listing.
