Amp Gutshots

I opened up my 1975 Bassman 100 the other day just for shits and giggles, and took a few pics. This made me think it would be really cool to see gutshots of different amps that UG users own.

Rules:
1. Don't spam too much, if you have a question or comment go ahead, but other than that don't post unless it is a gutshot.
2. Only post pictures you took yourself. We all know how to google and I don't want this thread full of stock images.
3. Read below.

DISCLAIMER: If you are unsure of how to open up your amp safely DO NOT DO IT. Amplifiers, and most electronics have capacitors in them that can store a charge long after they have been uplugged. If you go poking around and don't know what to avoid you could be electrocuted (that means killed, not shocked.) Also if you are unsure whether or not it will void your warranty, assume it will. I don't want to hear anyone complaining that I made you mess something up or injure yourself...

^Wow, no kidding. Thanks Ming, great additions. This is already shaping up a lot better than I expected.

Edit: Ming, what power tubes are in that Gibson? Those sockets look huge but it may just be the pic.

The Club Royale sounds as good as it looks too. The mids knob is crazy on this amp.
Around 9 o'clock, it is like a Fender. Noon and it's like a Vox. 3 and higher, you are getting into 18 watt Marshall territory.

I run an a/b/y set up. I use an AC15 and the CR, which is set up kind of Fender-ish.

getting a re-tube while its taken apart Pretty neat wiring, its the first time I've had it apart to look at it really.

I'll try to get one of the XXX up later on...just not motivated to take it out of its road case right now I might also have some shots of a B-52 chassis that I built a box for, as well as a modded Valve Jr. If photobucket ever starts working right for me again, I believe they're all on there.

me either....I'd like someone with a mark IV short body post some gutshots I bet that thing is packed!

I think this is a really cool idea. It fun to see the handwired amps. It always seems like they were trying to spell something with the way they place the resistors.

like gregs J-20.
