65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue - Hand Wired Upgrade

I recently came across two 65 Fender Deluxe Reissue amplifiers requiring work (a blackface and a blonde), and decided to update them with hand wired tag boards... A bit time consuming, when all was said and done a work of love for sure, but they sound brilliant now.

Some pictures of work in progress, and the completed amps. Please note: Clicking on the images will open large .jpeg files in a new window.
