Reason im asking, is cause my friends vintage (1980's) Ts9 just crapped out, the connection doesnt work at all, and whenever it actually connects, the sound is all static and then a tinny guitar under everything.

Do the reissues sound true to the original?

I mostly use it to saturate and boost my lead signal

Well, it's like comparing a reissue guitar to an original; the original will kick it's ass, but the reissue sounds better than the modern ones.

I've got a TS9 that sounds great, I'd say go for it.

Build one if you can, you can customize it to do exactly what you want. If you get one from BYOC you can run it on 18v and get more headroom to drive the amp with.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Well i hate a really sharp tone, and ive just dialed in my amp to get a great, really smooth, and round top end.
