The Lil Bastard is a Tweed 59 Bassman 5F6A side by side with a Plexi style circuit and few personal tweaks to make it special, neatly handwired inside a high quality American made chassis.

The single input allows the two circuits to be blended or used separately. Two switches were added to make the amp more configurable. One, the Plexi on/off switch to defeat the aggressive Plexi tone and drive (when it is not needed) and two, a Girth switch to beef up the Tweed and Plexi gain.

Since the Bassman and the Plexi circuits have different values for negative feedback a pot on the back allows you to dial in the amount of extra “hair” to suit your ear. With humbuckers the amp goes from “jazzy fat” to complex power amp over drive with great harmonics. Depending on settings you can get a great JTM45 sound as well as straight Plexi snarl.

While the initial intent of the amp was to be on its own without a pedal board,
it is a pedal board hound. Single coil guitars spank, and rip it up with a pedal board.
