I just got a used Vintage Rat off of ebay and it came in. I want to know how to tell if it has the LM308 still or if it has been replaced. Please help me out

does it really matter as long as it sounds good?

I haven't tried it yet, I won't get a chance until tomorrow. I forgot my amps power cord at my friends house. Do you know if it sound just as good??

How much would that cost? To get a LM308 since that is what was in them originally

^^^the IC isn't socketed so it isn't that easy.

If you post a pick I could tell you if the chip is original and if it is the real thing. I have a bunch of NOS RCAs that I use in Rat's they sound very good. Old LM741 also sound good in Rat's imo. If you want the ultimate mojo you gotta get the metal can version of the LM308.

I will post a picture later. I think it IS the original chip, (it says so on Wikipedia which isn't very credible) just one of the newer cheaper ones. What do you mean by it isn't socketed? Do you mean that it is soldered in instead of like snapping in?
