If you've not already found it, go to the Metro Amps forum and sign up. I think you'd get a lot more responses over there on the kits that you've mentioned. Metro Amp Forum

All I can say about the Ceria Tone is that it's an ever-improving product from what I've heard second- and third-hand. The early kits had some holes in the instructions though apparently people with a decent background in electronics could get through the build process. The newer kits are apparently including much better instruction guides.

Good luck with your amp project. A friend of mine is building me a decked-out JMP 1987 that I can't wait to play.

since this is on the same topic.since the amp has never been turned on is it safe for someone with no experience to build one,or would the local amp repair shop do it for me.thirdly is buying it prebuilt worth the cost.i saw a 1987 marshall at guitarcenter for 3300.i thought man what did they give the guy 800.someone must of needed cash to sell that
