    Hi all, We moved to Estero, Florida this fall from Indianapolis, In. Retired. Former Owner / builder of GR amplifiers (business closed in 2017). I moved two amps down here with us. One is a 36watt RS model with a quad of 6V6's, with a dual preamp of 1959 or 2203. Have a similar amp in 10watt with a pair of 6AQ5's, similar type preamp. I also have a prototype 14watt 6CM6 amp that I build up, and am in the process of building another in a combo.

    For guitars I have a black Doublecut LP Pro, an Arctic White Classic Vibe Strat with City Limit Toneriders and a custom Warmoth ebony fretboard neck, and just received a 2017 Fender Deluxe Butterscotch Telecaster.

    The 10watt 6AQ5 Tribute amp, dedicated to Dudley Craven one of the Fathers of Marshall amplification, (dedication requested by Ken Underwood , also a Father of Marshall amplification). It's a two channel Jtm45 or 1959 Plexi, at the flip of a switch. The only amp that I ever put someone else's Badge on. It was meant to be part of that tribute.
