I've been going crazy trying to decide on a low wattage (20 watts or lower) plexi like amp to get the great classic rock tones. After watching what seems like a million videos and starting a few recommendation threads, I'm seriously thinking about building one. I've never built an amp, but have worked inside amps, changing components, etc. I've also built a few pedals, and wired up many guitars. I'm curious to hear other's experiences.

I like the mkii version of this Trinity kit, https://www.trinityamps.com/product/trinity-18-kit/. They have a good builders forum, as well as great instructions specific to the build. What do you guys think? Is it worth the time, or should I just shell out the money for an amp?

It's worth every second, I say go for it. Be warned you'll get hooked. I always worried when I started building amps about buying parts to stock up, thinking that I may lose interest and be stuck with hundreds of dollars in parts. It's 20 years later and I'm still building.
When people ask me about building kits I always refer them here. Sure you can buy an amp, but you will love it more in the end, having the satisfaction of having built it.

Even tough builds can be done your first time, but an easier build like Triton, Tweed or Tramp is a good start.
you need to :
1. Read the manual
2. Practice Soldering
3. Go Slow and ask questions
4. Pay attention to detail.
