    Well, there's the problem . . .

    Got my Mesa back from my guitarist because it's been acting up, with volume randomly increasing and decreasing.

    First things to check are the power tubes, so I swapped in my old reliable testing set, turned it on, and started playing. Then stopped when I started to smell an unmistakable "hot electronics" stench.

    Guess my "old reliable testing set" isn't quite so "old reliable" anymore:

    I don't think i've ever seen an EL84 redplate like that!

    My Budda has started to do weird things too, so it's up next on the bench after I sort out the Mesa.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I did that to my Nomad right after I first got it

    I had one go like that not long after getting my Cobra. Fucker outshone the interior red lighting.
