Spring Fever at RAWOODS

Filed under: Uncategorized by: Rick

The AB763 circuit that Leo Fender designed back in July of 1963 has been copied and emulated by countless amp builders.

This RA Custom SR45 AB763 circuit is as faithful as it gets to the original Fender circuit, a true clone, but with better components.

Well, I had this bare old ’68 SR chassis hanging in the shop.  I got bored one day and started building … Well, it’s done and it’s awesome.
