I like the sound of this one, sorry about the crappy pics.
I can try to take better ones when i get the time.
Forgot to take pics on the "potz" boards other side...

Looks like charge pump, relay switching, 3 smd jfets, two 5k trimpots for the jfets.

Pots are:
Tone a500k
Output a25k
Volume a500k

Funny double decker board.

Probably a tube -> JFET adaptation, so similar to plexi-drive/supreaux deux/ etc. 18V supply with 1044 IC.

Why is there so many electrolytics, is it because of the LT1054?

I’m also curious to see if this one has some tricks under the hood or if it’s just two rog fetzer valves i. series with an output buffer…
