I'm going on soundclips of Fender's HW reissue, and I'm more than a little motivated by Clapton's tone with Steve Winwood. I know nobody's going to get that John Shur custom tone, but maybe in the ballpark?

Here's the stuff I like:

- 12AY7 at V1
- bias taps
- half power switch
- I assume you could also use 6V6, 5881 etc.
- beefy iron
- Head form factor
- chassis pics appear to show carbon comps selectively used

I would prefer Switchcraft over cliff jacks, but that's minor.

The biggest drawback is the lavender colored faceplate.  Huh? It clashes with everything!

Agree about the faceplate, but you could always get another one made...
