I only heard good things about the Fender Vibro Champ XD. I was looking for a review which compares it to one of the original versions (Blackface/silverface) but couldn't find one.
Will anyone share his thoughts about the comparison of these two amps?

I want to try and convince a friend of mine not to go for the XD but to do a DIY rebuilt of one of the silverface/blackface era.
