 Howdy Folks, New to this forum, I have been scoping Ceriatones for bout six months now, The 5E3  was and is one of the first I looked at. Since I primarly play blues and blues based rock, My main guitars are Les Pauls with handwound pickups and vintage wiring with Sprague PIO Caps, Though I have 2 MIJ Squire Strats as well.
 My local amp guru helped assemble a 18watt TMB into a cab, and said the tones were so outrageously sweet.
 What I wish to attain from Niks 5E3 is some sweet brownsound to some nasty blues overtones at the 7 -15 watt range, as the Blues places I jam at, this is about the volumes acceptable, Suggestions, am I barkin up the wrong tree?

Thanks Mckin I think even if I let Nik assemble the amp, I can get this done for under $750 with a decent speaker and cab from ampcabco, $200 Complete cab  and they are pretty close distance wise as well

If anything, 5E3 is a blues amp all the way. Can't go wrong with it.
...and as far as the Ceriatone quality, they are right there with the best of them.
