The layout on Ceriatone.com is correct, there are only three changes on the eyelet board from the 5E3. The coupling cap for the bright channel is decreased to .022uF...this is more of a "season to taste" thing to take some of the boom-y-yness out of the Bright/Inst Channel. Then the voltage is increased in the cathode bias capacitor and the resistor paired with it jumps to 10W.

As noted over at TAG, the big difference is Ceriatone uses their larger 340-0-340 5E5/5F4/5E7 power and output transformers on the 5X3 (paired with a 5AR4), so you have to confirm the MM PT will fit.
