Had Nick Winnard of  ModdJobbs take care of my 1484 with a complete electrical restoration. It seems my grandfather had made some attempts to modify the phase invert circuit for some odd reason. Anyway Nick restored the circuit to original and replaced old components as well as upgrading the output transformer that can actually do the 60 Watts the amp is supposedly rated for (original transformer was a bit small).

Right now running it cranked channels jumped as seen in the picture, slamming the front end with an MXR Micro Amp.
