I think George uses NOS GEC KT66. I think this is the same amp on top:

Man that is some tasty tone! I know you're currently offering the JTM45 kits, but are you building JTM45s for sale these days?

George,
I didn't realize you were building these for people, I hope I wasn't stepping on your toes when I offered to build one for TFL.

I can't get enough of this clip. How do you like that 56 VOS George? I'm thinking about putting one of those on the "shopping list." I love the VOS guitars they are putting out. I am obsessed with P90s and have been more of a SG/P90 guy in the past, but the idea of the bite of a P90 mixed with the chunk of a Les Paul is driving me crazy!

It's fun to see some P-90 and alnico blue action for once! How do them Blue's compress when the amp is cranked?

Like angels singing. This could really be desert island amp and cab. It covers so many tones. From tweeds to Marshalls.

Do you prefer 4x12 Celestion Blue to 2x12 or 4x12 Celestion Gold? :)
