What would be the best place to start with amp building? I have basic soldering skills from technology classes, and I can read circuit diagrams, but where would be the best place to start? I live in the UK, if that makes any difference.
My Current Gear
Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded (Cherry Burst) || Gibson Les Paul Junior (Vintage Sunburst)
Marshall 1987X and 1960AX || Weber Mass 100
