Amp Mods in Austin Texas?

Looking to get my Blues Junior modded into something more like a Princeton- or at least just get it swapped with some 6v6 tubes.

i found this guy
http://www.williamsvintageamps.com/

but i emailed him about a month ago and haven't heard anything back yet.

So i come to with the question of who could i take my amp to? I know Austin Vintage does repairs but i dont know about modding anything or if there's some random awesome guy doing basement work thats fantastic. (well not really "Basement" since we don't have very many of those here)

Bill Webb at Austin Vintage, or Jon Bessent at Tonecraft - I think either of them could talk to you about what you want out of that amp, and either find a way to get it, or tell you (if it's true) that you'd be better served selling that amp and buying something different.

Jon does good work on Blues Juniors (and everything else). He and I swap tips from time to time.

The full suite of Billm mods plus an upgraded output transformer gets you a pretty rollicking amp. You could switch to 6V6s, but you can get pretty close without the tube swap.
