Everything in the re-issues is as cheep as they can possibly make it, the components are all cheap tiny little PC mount parts mounted on a cheap PC board, which contains lots of layout & wiring mistakes. Take both of your amps out of the cabinets and look at the difference! Right on Billy. This is why many of us tout buying a good SF amp over the new ones.
