You are not being a nahsayer Matt but you do speak the truth. It really doesn't matter if it was made in China or not - PC boards don't last a long time. This is why point to point wiring will be the best buy type amps out there. The only problem is, point to point amps are not cheap. It is easier to wave solder a board then to solder each component.
Here is the upside for me. I used to repair electonic medical equipment for 25 years and do a lot of the work myself, so when it comes time to repair, I will do it myself. In the meantime, I may look for some fish paper boards if I am feeling aggressive and may rewire the Jet City amp one day, or maybe not.
Fender Blues Juniors are notourius for having problems with boards after 3-5 years. That is the price you pay for lower cost amps. Cheap labor and a lot of short cuts.
