Fender have schematics for most of their guitar amps on their website. You could do worse than to start there

Cheers,

Also could the "100W Guitar Amplifier Mk II" kill you if you done something wrong? haha

Also would it be possible to buy the power supply? like from jaycar?

Why not just buy a small practice amp?, you don't need anywhere near 70W for practicing in your room! - 70W is a reasonable amp for a gig!.

There are plenty of cheap practice amps around 10-15W, which is more than enough to annoy your neighbours!.

Yer i know i dont really want a 100W one but these are the best plans i can find, i already have a 10W amp, but it sounds like ****.

Im going to make a distortion peadle of some sort, then see how it sounds.

What sounds wrong with it?, it's a practice amp! - if you massively over-drive it you're not going to get good sound. All those I've heard sound perfectly fine for home practice, and have headphone sockets so you don't disturb family and neighbours.

Perhaps you better be more specific what you're wanting to do?.
