The ground hum issue (as one of my friends says), gives it "Character"...

I've tried to isolate the issue, but can't seem to eliminate it without shorting some crucial part of the circuit.  As long as it isn't picking up AM radio stations, I'm OK with it.

Hoppin' good sounds, Toad.

thanks, man!
The amp is a 15W Qkits circuit. I'll find the info and post the link. It hums like crazy (ground loop?) but cranks through a 50Watt co-ax car speaker.

That is a fine tone you are getting. Very nice.
