Fender Vibro King
new customshop series

Total rebuild preamp, and back to the orginal, to get rid of a typical Swedish terrible modification.

Unfortunately there are a lot of Fender and Marshall amps around Sweden, with this amateurish and disrespectful modifications.

It's a real amplifier sabotage.

Cables and components are very chort and strech mounted, and seem to be soldering with a iron or lighter, rear and back panels are tattered with drilled holes placed slantinggly and also in the panel letters.
