Slowly does it ; Success on the selector, it is exactly the right type, apart from not being engraved. In other news I'm the owner of some very smart Eric Collins cloth, pictures to follow..

It's Alive !

The selector on tranny style does make for an easy neat install, note the 2-tag onto which the wire to the case-mounted output jack sockets attaches.

Why not add some glass.. sounds sweet!

Cool, So is that the Marstran -74 with end bells taken from an older OPT and the french selector added?

I really like the sound of these -74's a bit of a secret weapon IMHO. And they still work very well with EL34's - try it if you havent yet.,

Be good to see some pics of the 45/100 is it done yet?

Great so that was some clean noodling with a tele (and fairly bright speakers in the cab), so how does it sound with some humbuckers and greenbacks> :twisted:

Ah, don't be deceived by the cab - although it is a repackaged Carlsboro PA cab, the horn and tweeter are disconnected, so it's just the 2x12 speakers which are vintage G12H's. It's just my go to gigging speaker - compact and punchy.

It's one of the best clean sounds I've heard in ages.

I will get round to giving it some Gibson crunch.. at some point...
