      Awesome...I'm Jason Hayes. I was in Lubbock from 1995-2000 and you helped me many times with repairs and such. (My friend Cody McClain recommended you to me) I bought a 66 Bassman from you once. Are you still in business? I enjoyed coming to your store. I've never given it up and am working on a new band currently here in Dallas

        Jason, I remember..good to hear from you. I am still open for business, and I am glad you found my place and service of worth. Let me know if there is anything I can ever do or if you are looking for something. I have customers from the metroplex area that still believe in my work enough to make the trip.

      Ok, if you thought that was a tough one, I'm now looking for a bridge cover for my '67 with original Bigsby. Have one for my '74 Thinline Bigsby, so I know they exist, but... Looks very similar and maybe even be the same as Jaguar/Jazzmaster bridge cover, but again, I'm not certain. Do you happen to know?
      1. Wally
        Wally
        I have never seen such a cover except in pictures. And yes.....the bridge looks like a Jaguar/Jazzmaster bridge.

        I’m glad you received it and are pleased. I got three of these in an auction of a store’s assets over 20 years ago. They were in a box of odds and ends.

        Enjoy,,

      Hey Wally,
      I would be interested in one of those vintage strat bridge covers if you can spare one. If you wouldn't mind sending me a quick photo along with a price you would want for one, I'm sure we can work a deal.

      Thanks so much for helping me out with this,

      Cas

      I saw that you had one in a previous thread and was hoping you might could help. This is pretty close to a complete build. My first issue is sourcing the correct replacement transformers and I understand that the 5b5s were the last pros to have a choke, looking at the schematic it's not making sense to me where this goes . Thanks for any help

      Hi Wally I'm a novice but a person close to me passed away and left me a 5b5 pro ...sort a... Seams like someone had gone through and mutalated it...I would like to put it back to being a 5b5.

      hi, Schmee tells me you might know where I could find a potentiometer for a Lab Series amp (L11). thanks for any info you might have

        Hello, Klee. I have never needed OT replace a pot in mine, but I hear that a young customer has just bought a Lab that needs work....and that he is probably going to bring it to me. In case I need such an item, could you share where you found the part you needed. I suppose that Inwould start looking at Mouser or DigiTech as a beginning???

      Great tone but it always seemed like it’s lacking in volume/gain. His has been serviced
    10. Mike Eskimo

      Can these amps be made louder/gainier ?

      Hey Wally -
      I know you have one of those little Rickenbacker amps w/the copper chassis (I forget the model name - B9 ?) I might buy milocj’s Electro version of the same amp
      Thanks ! Mike E

      Dear Wally, I’m desesperatly looking for a speaker Oxford 10k5. I know you were ask for it some years ago. By chance I only need one, do you think it’s possible?
      Many thanks

        Hello, Peter. Iirc, I do not have one of those, but I will check to see just in case my memory is off. I do have a couple of vintage Jensen C10Q’s.

      Hi...I saw your post awhile back on Reverb Tank, inducters loose and applying super glue. I have a Marshall Reverb 12. The reverb springs are inside the chassis. I am getting a low ringing of these springs at higher volumes.
      When you say inducters...are they the little squarish pieces of plastic wrapped in wire like a coil? If this is what you are referring too, but I will try if they are...thanks!
      1. Wally
        Wally
        Yes, on each end there is a coil through which the laminates pass. I can’t say that I have ever heard loose inductors to cause feedback like that, but things happen...

      Hey Wally, I'm located in Lubbock. Do you have any vintage tube amps for sale at the moment?

      Thanks,

      Hey Wally, would you text me your address.... I'm getting closer to having the coin to have you service my Princeton NR. We talked about this a while back.....I'll order the cap can as you suggested...... Also would you need my tubes?
      Thanks
