Hand-Wiring Services

Hand-Wiring Service for Reissue Fenders and Marshall Amplifiers

Both Fender and Marshall have re-issued some of their classic designs, but these reissue amps typically come stock with a printed circuit board, which tends to compromise both tone and reliability, and makes servicing them difficult, to say the least.

Due to popular demand, George Alessandro offers a rebuilding service for some of these models, in which he replaces the printed circuit boards with hand-wiring, and replaces the low-grade components with specially chosen components designed to enhance the amps tone and functionality.

George personally does all work on these types of projects, including:

  • Removing the printed circuit board, pots, and jacks
  • Build a custom board and handwire the circuit, following the original vintage specifications
  • All new pots and components are used in the re-build
  • The factory transformers, chassis, and certain other components are re-utilized
  • Amps comes stock with Fender Groove Tubes

The new circuit board utilized in these rebuilds is a custom, proprietary Alessandro epoxy/glass laminate military specification board. Components include:

  • All wiring is done using audio-grade silver eutectic solder
  • Select orange drop-style capacitors
  • Alessandro’s proprietary high-end filter and bypass capacitors (made in Germany)
  • Silver mica caps in the audio path
  • CTS pots
  • PTFE/Teflon-coated silver-plated wire (the same as used in Alessandro amps)
  • Switchcraft military spec input jacks
  • Carbon resistors in audio path for proper tone
  • Film resistors in power supply for quiet, reliable operation
  • Upgraded speakers are an available option
