A miswire right in front of you can "look OK" and you pass it by, but in trying to fix something remotely, as we have been doing here, it can be particularly perilous, because we tend to assume the unit is the same as the schematic specifies. I have been doing this all my life, and I have been training technicians for 40 years, and yet, it happens to me too.

I am glad you found it.

And this is the perfect example to show novice techs that it isn't always a good idea to jump in and start replacing parts. We could replace every part in the amp, and if we never noticed the wire on the wrong end, it STILL would be doing this.
