I bought a blackface Vibro Champ aa764 kit. It has all the parts but the chassis, cab, and speaker. I just bought a chassis to make a head out of it. I’ll let ya know how it goes and have some pics and vids when it’s all done.

This is awesome, I’ve been looking for some direction! I just ordered a kit and realized I’ll have to drill everything out and this shows where to place components and the best ways to fabricate. It all makes more sense now. Thanks!

That sounds like the Triode Electronics kit, yes?

How to Layout and Build a Guitar Amplifier Chassis – GuitarKitBuilder

Thanks for the nice comment.

As you stated, this is intended to give “direction” to individuals who are laying out a chassis cofiguration, especially for the first time. This photo essay is a learning guide and not intended as the “Definitive” absolute last word, as is true with all my tutorials/essays.

Good luck with your project.

EDIT: 11-26-11

The chassis used in the article is a Hammond 1444-18 blank Aluminum chassis, measuring 13.5″ × 4″ × 2″ and is available for about $20 from among other vendors. It’s a great size for early Champs and Princetons or small custom designs.

Do you offer the chassis layout for a FENDER PRO REVERB. ! NO MASTER VOLUME ! Thanks, Wm.Mathis. Or do you sell the chassis less components???
