10,000 openings is a lot of work for panel readiness, but do-able, if need be, in my situation.
Still, I have never seen a commercial PCB for ESLs available. Could you post a link?

Actually, I love tube amps...
I play guitars through them

I'm not aware of any PCBs being available commercially at present. The closest are some small PCBs made by Rob McKinley at ER Audio (google).

Meantime, In case you had missed it, there was a build thread with CNC PCB stators (stealing bolsersts' links from another thread .

A few links from the thread with pics:
