I just watched a video of Joe at 12 years old playing an opening for B.B. King, truly amazing. I have only recently started to listen to Joe's music and I like it. I became aware when I started looking into making my own 5F8A clone and Joe seems to be someone who has become an "expert" of sorts on this amp to say the least.
I have 4 kids, 16yo, 13yo, 8yo, 6yo, and during Covid I got back into playing guitar to see if any of them would pick up the interest in music. Well, they did. All of them. lol.
I joined this board mostly looking for information about the '59 Twin-Amp JB Edition. I have looked online for pictures of the inside or a schematic or a layout and have not found very good clear info. A service manual like the Bassman reissue has would be awesome. I have found many pictures of original '59s and mostly understand how it was made but is different from the published schematics of course. I am hoping to update the original design of the circuit with modern day safety in mind and I would think the JB Edition would have that. If for a multitude of reasons this info is not allowed to be made public then i understand.
Anyway, making the amp is another project I am trying to do with my kids to try teach them to make things with there hands.
Should be fun.
Thanks for the add.
