Yes, it has the compressor and the extra switchable overdrive stages.

Are you doing the V-type preamp with the compression circuit, or the V pre with just gain and tone?
PCB quality let the production units down a bit - sound great, not really up to touring.
They were built to order, so every one different (I had three different logo plates).
Used the compnents at hand, so some freedons taken 'on the day'....

Do you need the schematic?
This is with the compression. Man you had some nice amps. I just saw a new-looking V8 go for $3900. They didn't make many. PCBs are not turret, but they look extremely uncompromising in some ways. For instance they put relays in the circuit locations for optimum layout. Pots are typical modern small low-wattage ones.

I was surprised the V6 and V8 output transformers are the same physical size.
