Since I could not find the documents on the Internet, I post them from my archive packed in ZIP files.
There are schematics, layouts and pictures to find.

Had the misfortune to work on one of these, the idea of modularity is nice, execution, meh, very brittle plastic, worn out card edge connectors, quite problematic amps IMHO.
But interesting certainly, thanks! Do recall I had something by way of a service manual back then, but it might be on paper.

Especially with 3d printing being commonplace, refurbishing one of these amps might be less daunting now than it was back then.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to start manufacturing modules for the owners of these equipment (in case Seymour Duncan does not provide post-sale support...)

As Jarno says, having availability today of 3D printers it would be very easy to reproduce the boxes where each of these printed circuit boards will be housed

Here is a link that tell us more about this line of amplifiers: https://www.seymourduncan.com/blog/late ... guitar-amp
