    Still needing a amp repair shop for 1956 GA-6

    A 56 GA-6 is about the simplest amp you could ever work on. I currently own a 55 GA-6 and 56 GA-20. Did all the work on both of them. If we had a picture of his amps innards, obviously that would be a start. Not Rocket science. I'd even offer a Zoom call and show on my amp everything to look out...

    Still needing a amp repair shop for 1956 GA-6

    What does it need work on? I'm pretty sure you can do all of the work yourself. There are so many videos on how to repair these amps. I've replaced many caps and resistors on my GA amps. Many guys as well as myself on this forum could help you out. All you need is a simple soldering iron...

    A Rare One....

    Wally, if you have a newer smart phone, just do a video. They do a pretty darn good job all things considered. I've never seen one of these, has me very intrigued to hear it as it's a very different kind of amp. Such great external condition. Great score.

    The first time reconing Jensen Speakers

    My Quaranteen Project. Reconing and Restoring 50's Jensen Guitar speakers today. Not for the faint hearted. Hardest part is cleaning off all the previous glue from the paper cone/ grey surrounds and the orange spider in the bottom. Soldering the little voice coil wires were a tad scary seeing...

    I have a set of the original Dr. V WOLFETONE pickups in a replica and I love them, about a month ago I played an R7 that had been refined to a burst pattern and that guitar had the same series pickups, I was astonished on how good they sounded in a different guitar. All the same tone variables...

    99 Jensen p10r's sound great

    As many of you know, I love tweed amps. Most all come with vintage alnico Jensens and many need reconing or if your lucky they are in great shape. Nothing beats an original P10r or P10q for sound in my ears. I tried some 99 Jensen p10r's and compared to a pair of older reconed jensen p10r's. The...
