Silvetone 1472 had crap caps but will take you home if you watch it.Plants "Raising Sand" T-Bone's vibrato from this very Silvertone is amazing.These amps had cardboard baffle boards,the sound is there,though!
Actually the JTM45 is an EXACT copy of the tweed bassman....the only exception being the 16 ohm hook up on the output trans...that knocks up the power. On the schematic there are a few different values...but minor ones...even Fender didn't stick to scehmatic values if they had something else on hand to use that was "close".
