Just got 'em finished. The space at the bottom is for some vented panels and a future meter package. They sound mighty nice.

Is there any difference between the two Bottlehead amps other than the meters?

There are minor differences - the brand of caps used in some positions. Other than that and the lack of meters they are identical. The version without meters is what we will be making. I'm cooking up some form of separate metering panel as an option. The astute will notice space in the custom rack for one more piece of gear.
