You may wanna ask your tech about this. It's a fast job, should cost very little, and what 90% of techs call "blackfacing" when it really isn't.
Basically CBS changed the lead dress so there was this parasitic oscillation happening and they solved it with those suppression caps & resistors.
I will have it checked out. I have only messed around at low volume so far.
When people say "Blackfacing" I always think that they mean they mod it so it "breaks-up at a lower volume"... where-as I am a "clean to the top" player, on both Pedal Steel and Guitar.
Using the pre-amp-tap. it starts to break up around 7.5 (7 sounds pretty sweet)... the 9-10 range is kinda too distort-o for me.
I will also have him put in the "click-in/out" pot to remove the Tremelo circuit from the primary signal path.
fwiw, this amp has a great sounding Tremelo circuit.
Anyone want to buy a nice Alembic F2B?
(I will list later this week in Garage Sale section).
