The boss came around and said what we'd be building. Probably the same as the pots and transformers that we just dug out of the boxes.

For instance, he confirmed our assumption that the amp chassis were put into stock after being stamped with serial numbers and that the chassis were pulled from the stock bins randomly (just as with Fender guitar neck plates).
