My dad built these when I was at school. Images do not do them justice. I remember my dad spending a LOT of time doing all the custom veneer work. I remember they were Richard-Alan units.

I had one like this as my first amp some 30 years ago. It was my dads old amp. I don't remember the model number but maybe there is a image of it in my old photo albums. Always thought it was a nice sounding amp. Ages ago I did look up the schematics out of interest to see what changed each amp version.

Sadly my mate killed it while we was messing about one day :( I think I had a kenwood amp after that. Not sure what happened to it.
