Hand wired point to point Fender style amps
I don't spend much time here,but wanted to give a heads up to those that might be interested in tweed style amps that are built, ground up, by one person. That is, he builds the cabinet, applies the tweed, drills the chassis and solders all connections, etc. His name is Jim Nickelson and he runs Li'l Dawg Amps.
I got his basic model called the Champster which is his version of the 5F1 circuit of the '59 Fender Champ.
He also makes a Champster Special which is a louder version of the Champster and a D-Lux which is his version of a Deluxe.
Last night I ordered his first Bassman which is his take on the '59 Fender Bassman.
His prices are very reasonable and guess what guitars he plays...Ibanez.
Check him out.
