Dead on! He beat me to it and saved me from trying to find the numbers.

And St. Augustine, so needs a full time amp guy, he would never be with out work! I was gonna go to scholl for it, but there is no schools for it around there, and now I'm up here wishing I was back there.

Thanks bud, Could you check that number again? It's saying it's not a valid number. I tried to find this guy all week but the only thing I've found is an old address in Orange Park. Directory assistance has no listing for it in St. Augustine. I think I need a little more than a checkup. Possibly a cap job.

No green plug Zim.

There's a guy in Arlington named Richard Shenkenstein(?) I took a Gibson RVT to him last summer and he did a good job on it. I'll try to find one of his cards and post the info here.

What ever happened to Active Electronics on Beach I believe? When I was stationed in Jax in the 90's I used to have him work on my Marshall.

Roy moved to California a few years back to start building his own amps.(blankenship amps) The only other person left is Richard Shenkenstein.. as mentioned.. he fixed up a randall Rm100 head of mine. Very good, and nice guy. I think he may do warranty work for fender and marshall now too.

Also check Jaxbands.com

I haven't found his card, so hopefully you'll get him through the jaxbands.com site. There was someone in Orange Park advertising on craigslist a couple months ago. I'm not sure but I suspect he might be a Bill Ferris disciple, which would be cool. I was one of the multitudes of Jax guitarists who used to go to Bill for amp repairs and general enlightening in the ways of good tone.

Thanks Joe, I called and sent an email today but didn't hear anything. I'm not sure I have the right phone number because it is just a generic voicemail box. I looked through Craigs list but didn't see anyone. If anyone knows this other guy in OP please let me know. I can't believe in a city this size there is not one good tech that has a good track record and is interested in my business. I've heard good things about Shenkeinstein so hopefully he will get back with me. This is very frustrating. I hate to think I'm going to have to box the chassis up and send it somewhere.

Call Don at Dons Guitars, he could tell you where to go, Or Buddy. Hell, Buddy might, MIGHT be able to do it for you. I know he is pretty handy with guitars. Tell him Cleet from St. Augustine (now in NY) sent you.

Anybody found Shenkeinsteins number yet? I've left a message at the only number I found yesterday but it appeared to be an old ad and I haven't heard from him. Thanks for all the help guys. I'm going to find a tech sooner or later. I have a buddy who tried Don's guy Zim but he kept the amp 4 months and never fixed it. I've known Don for about 25 years so I may end up calling him if I can't find Dr. Shenk.

Thanks Joe, I can't find anyone in Craigs list and I still haven't heard from Dr. Shenkeinstein. If anyone knows if he's still in town please let me know.

I wonder if that 4 month thing was when there was a shake up at the amp place? Best bet that I know of is Don.


Ah, I got my '95 USA P-bass from Don many years ago, and it is still my #1!
