Top work.
    Glad you liked them For anyone interested here are the amps in question:

    Will,

    you're going to have to stop showing pictures of amps with their clothes off or you'll get some folks on here keeling over with excitement seizures

    Indeed... It's nice to see some properly engineered amplifiers for a change (instead of a lot of today's pish)!

    Look closely. It's one of those new breed of ripoff 'books' which are just an assemblage of wikipedia articles. You can read it's contents without buying, for free.

    I sent a few boxed Radford bits for Will to restore. I can say his workmanship and attention to detail were exemplary. The amps sounded nice too!
