The Lazy J 20 is based on a late 50s Fender amp but with all available options.
It is a 2 channel, hand build, point to point wired amp, which delivers ca. 18 Watts into a 12” speaker (Celestion Alnico)
The 2 channels are marked Normal and Bright with a Volume control for each one. The Tone control affects both channels equally.
Looking at the 4 inputs from the back of the amp, the 2 on the right are for the Normal Channel and the 2 on the left are for the Bright Channel.
The amp is set up with a GZ34 rectifier and a pair of 6L6s in the power amp, and uses two 12AX7s.
The Lazy J reverb is a tube driven reverb circuit with a full size reverb tank, adding another dimension to the amp (comes with a reverb footswitch).
Ground knob is in fact a preamp voltage boost which will gives you more crunch/distortion without increasing volume level.
