Pet Peeves

I really hate it when people sell stuff on e-bay and misrepresent what it is….

A friend of mine bought a Fender ’63 stand alone reverb unit in used but ‘new’ condition. Far from it. someone had been inside it and did a really poor job of trying to put in some new capacitors, why, who knows, probably looking for that magic mojo that certain capacitors are supposed to have…..(BS)

So, the fool that tried to replace these capacitors succeeded in unsoldering the leads of the big blue one from the back side of the board. Should take me about 5 min at most to re-solder them once I get to the backside of the board. Then I’ll get to see what else is wrong with it.
