The set a is for Gibson gss 100. Set b is for Epiphone ea600rvt the sister amp. You can tell by the speaker outputs the gss has 2 and Epiphone has 3 for the 4x10 can and the 50 watt slave amp you could add on to the amp.

Kool little guitar amp. I love searching for pedals and equipment and finding something that gives you the sound your looking for. Scrapping old electronics for pedal building has become my newest hobby. Well it has a long haul finding parts exact for the pedal but it has gave me a better understanding of what happens inside the circuits of our favorite sound effects.

Ive also built a signal tracer test probe from online video schematic. So it gos func.generator or the file you provided out of a sound source mp3 amp small bluetooth player.  Where do i go from there?? Signal tracing?? I have multimeter as well.

Well i bought a new multimeter. Lost the old one. Built a signal tracer. Started tracing but unsure about where to and how. Bought one 2n3055 output transistor. Match the speakers they are 16ohm 10 inch Chicago telephone speakers two per box. total of two boxes with two tens in each box. The fuses were all different so i bought the 5 amp 250volt slow blow fuses the amp schematic called for ans now im waiting for some advice and finepoints. I can send schematics videos of the amps sound and insides inner workings whater i am told to do but really want this amp back in shape you know even if its a slow process. Any advice???
