Wiring Up the 5e3 Circuit Board

Posted: 2011/01/23 in DIY Guitar Amplifier Projects, Fender Tweed Deluxe 5e3 Clone

Here are some shots of wiring up the old-school style eyelet board (front and back):

I made a few component changes from the stock Trinity kit parts:  Sprague Atom filter caps, Sozo Bluemolded caps (which are supposed to replicate the Astrons used in old Fenders), a few metal film resitors, and I also replaced the 5W Xicon cathode resistor with an Ohmite “Brown Devil.”   I also used stranded teflon-coated wire for signal wiring as I find it easier to work with compared to the fairly bulky solid vinyl coated wire the kit shipped with.
