I'm building the new Seductor amp and have a question about the instructions on page 34. 

The 9" red wire that goes to the center lug on socket "B" is attached to terminal 45L in the photos, but the instructions say to solder it to terminal 46L.  46L is instructed to be soldered up on the previous page 33. 
Typo?
I appreciate some help here, I love building the Bottlehead kits but I still don't know how to read the circuit diagrams.  In previous builds i have found it best to go with what the pictures show. :P

Thanks for any insights,

Nels

46L is a typo, it should be 45L.

Usually a good idea - the amp is photographed as it's built, then tested to confirm that the build that was photographed is correct and actually worked. The testing, incidentally, includes getting the numbers for the voltage test section of the manual.

Rarely, there are small changes (usually different parts due to availability) that are photoshopped in, but nothing that would break the internet.  :^)

Josh is pretty good at turning diodes around in Photoshop.
