I am extremely busy with amp repairs for Chicago Fret Works due in part to the Corona virus keeping people home with lots of time to practice, record, and live stream. I am grateful to have steady work and interest in my amps but there is only one of me and only so many hours in the day.  ETA for new builds is now 6 months. I have room in the queue for one or two more before I have to put a temporary hold on new orders. Thank you for your interest and support! Work has been a huge silver lining and blessing to this otherwise worst year ever.
