no its not canibalized, its just that the right channel does not work.it keep blowing fuses and burns the right channel output transistors. i have the skematic and service manual.but kind of tired triying to find whats wrong. i just want to have the old school look and funcionability of the amp whit new guts. but if you have an idea of what could be wrong its welcome,thanks
