    Since it's just the head, I'd ship it to David Allen of Allen Amplification, he knows his way around Fender amps and is quick. Try his email.

    Billy Yates in Venice is excellent. He just did some work on my Blonde '63. 310-821-4663

    I'll second Mike's recommendation of Don Butler. He's done several tuneup/tweeks for me on a variety of amps, and is great to work with.
