1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    :( Okay... Can someone recommend a reputable repair place anywhere in WI? I'm having a hard time believing there is no one near Milwaukee that can fix a Marshall. I need two pots replaced and would like to have the filter and bias caps on a JCM 2550 replaced. Anyone out there???

    Perhaps you've already tried calling around to see of any local stores do in-house repairs?The repair folks for electronics and guitar repair at the evil empire,GC,are usually independent contractors and sometimes are actually experienced and quite qualified.You can also check local musician oriented rags,speaker reconing and repair shops listed in the phone book and try running your request past the folks at Google group alt.guitar.amps-it will be a welcome break from the politics.

    John Blick is the best and pretty much only guy in the area for amp repairs. He's certified to do work on about any amp you can find.

    His number is 414.475.6198

    Call during normal 9-5 hours. He's an odd guy, but does good work.

    EDIT - I don't remember exactly where his shop is, but it's out of his house and in the Miller Park area.

    That's a great shop, worth the drive if you need something from them.
