    Well here is unit that may sound great, but the build quality is really not ideal. This monster ate a lot of time, but with a complete re-caping and few transistor replacements and relaped heads its looking up for this classic machine.

    Yes sir every polarized cap has been changed. Lots of work to get it thus far.
