Are you serious? 2 years!! First move is to get it back from that guy. It would be his job to find a schematic, not yours. That is totally unacceptable.
Find another repair person. That guy doesn't deserve your business.

Oh dear! Another fabled but low-volume SS line from the glory days of the 60's!

I checked all the free sites I know for schematics but nothing on Kustom. If you google "Kustom 200 schematic" you will probably find some sources that will sell you what you need.

You might start here: http://www.broadwaymusicco.com/kustom1.htm

Along with great pictures and a ton of history text they also sell some schematics.

Do you really need a schematic? Most of the early solid state units were pretty simple by today's standards. A lot of them lifted their circuits direct from the RCA Transistor Amplifier application sheets. Those old books were great. They would always put a lot of application notes on how to use their different transistors in low and high powered amps.

Good luck!

I should explain that the two year period is as much my fault as his in between his wife recent bout with cancer and my divorce neither one of us has been running on all cylinders . I agree it should be his job to find the schematics but I'm just trying to lighten the load and it's not like I miss it I have at least 8 other amps I can choose from . :food-smiley-004:
