5E3 assembly manual
WARNING! This amp operates at voltages that may exceed 400V! Use extreme caution
when building and testing. If you are not comfortable working with high voltages, refer
assembly and testing to a qualified technician.
Neither the manufacturer nor the seller of this kit assume any responsibility for damages or
injuries incurred during assembly, testing, repair, or usage of this device.
Note: There are some minor variations between this 5E3 kit and the original Fender 5E3. Most of
these changes improve the noise and hum characteristics, and do not alter the tone or the sound in
any way. We have provided a schematic diagram at the end of this document. You can find the
original 5E3 schematic on many websites, if you wish to compare the two.
