I'm sure even Rupert Neve started out with some Veroboard.  Or maybe even tag-strip :-)

In terms of electronics design it wasn't very challenging.  It just ended up being a relentless job of soldering and drilling holes in the panel for pots!

Yeah, I totally agree.  But I was only about 19 when I started it.  I had no idea how to make a PCB back then, or any money to pay for the Photo-plot tooling.  I did however, have lots of wire, veroboard and a track cutter !
