    Does anyone know of someone in Southeast Michigan who does amp repairs? I have a mid '70's Fender Champ that needs some work. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Graydon at GDS/Guytron and George at Metro. Not sure if they do repairs or not but they build killer amps so they might be able to help you.

    Here's a second for Dean Zink in Sylvan Lake, took care of my amp in one day, and a very nice guy to boot, google him and his number will come up.

    Guy Hedrick is also a great choice over on the east side. Dave Boze in Grand Blanc is a huge expert in Fender amps. He'd be a great choice if he'll work on it for you.

    When did Guy move back to the D? Last I heard he was in Seattle!

    In my opinion I would stay away from Blitz Amplifiers. I brought my amp in to get repaired,he diagnosed it as a bad transformer (although it was playing,but noisy when I brought it in) and proceeded to tell me he didn't want to work on it (I asked why and his response was "no particular reason", this guy is very quirky). now my amp doesn't work at all and I need to find another shop,who does that to a customer??

    Another one for Dean Zink. He's been fixing my amps for years and he always
    does a great job.
