Finally got around to building my Stray Cat that I bought months ago. I was renovating and then moving so I held off till I got settled in the new place. This is my 2nd Stray Cat build and probably my 10th Ceriatone build so I am getting the hang of it I think by now.
Well I finished it and then got bored so this is what I did.

I removed the EDGE and turned it into a Tone pot same as on the Spitfire layout. The wire from the Edge then goes to a 220K resistor to earth.

Then I took out the stand bye switch and fitted it to the back of the amp in 1 of the 2 spare holes and in its place I added a PPIMV

Then I took out the half power switch and added a Hall VVR

from there I decided that the EDGE pot was a must so I placed it next to the standbye switch in the other spare hole next to the stand bye switch.

On the clean channel I strapped a .022uf over the .0015 to thickin it up a little and later made this switchable by making the Volume pot a push pull. I did the same to the drive by adding a push pull to the bass pot and strapping a 0.10uf over the other .0015uf that goes to the Gain pot.

Last move was to replace the clean tone pot with the same value while making it an on off pot so I could by pass the tone if I want to.

I may add some switches like on the Dumble next but this is it for now. All up it is a more versatile amp, much more controllable and has a greater range of tones. 

Special thanks To Jamie my friend, Mal at Evatco and Nik for help and advice along the way.....

Awesome! Thinking of doing a couple of mods myselg, probably not quite the same. Ideally, I'd like to put a PPIMV on just the clean channel (is that possible?), maybe try to add some kind of tone control to the clean channel to control the bass frequencies when i use humbucker guitars. I'm pretty naieve about how to approach these ideas, so any thoughts or advice would be appreciated!
