Fender Japan 60's Re-issue Re-fret, this guitar played and sounded way above its price point, really great guitar.

Great tubes, a GOOD tech/engineer will change faulty tubes, NOT old tubes, these beauties were factory installed in the 80s & still have balanced Ip & great transconductance, sensational tone.

3D printing new workshop tools = the BEST!
Can't believe how handy these machines are, if you can think it, you can make it (provided you can use CAD)

Fans are great at cooling tubes, but every now & then its nice to clean of the blanket of dust that builds up!
