Mesa hand wired? I've never met a hand wired Mesa - have owned three of them. Now you have me interested - which ones? Of all the amps I've bought and sold, that Pro Reverb Reissue was my least favorite. My complaints were that it weighed 75 lbs and lacked any real sonic character but mostly that working on it was ridiculous. It had a scratchy master pot, so I ordered one and upon opening, the prospect of removing four PCBs and a whole front panel PCB just to replace the one pot caused me to put it all back together and sell it. I bought an Allen Fender variant and have never looked back. Tone, reliability and repairability are superior. But it's not always just about tone quality - the new ones can have their own sound and it can be great. As you start to look into it, it can also be about other things like I just mentioned.
