    Greg's customer service is beyond reproach. He and his amps really set a high bar.

    Let the lovefest continue. Greg is indeed a gentleman and a scholar in the field of guitar amps. My Classic 45 (review still pending) is a work of musical art (unlike my playing).

    I was listening to a interview last night and heard him say he has a SLO. I wish he would make at least one master V amp.

    Talked to him earlier this week, he called me to let me know my C-40 was done. It's white, pics will come soon!!

    Scott nailed it, all his kudos are well earned!
    One of the best in the business.

    I agree 100%..........

    I go through a lot of amps, but I always seem to keep the Germino's. Greg is by far one of the best builders I've ever bought an amp from. A real gentleman. Always willing to answer questions with a thoughtful answer. Always willing to spend time on the phone. Builds the best Plexi amps on the planet IMO.

    All above is true, but also he's a killer slide player! Sat in with his band Mr. Freeze including he and Jason Barker a couple of weeks ago and had a blast!
    :D

    Greg is THE man. I used to own a Classic 45, but I will own another Germino amp as soon as my bank account allows me to. I'm going to go with a Club 40 this time.

    He went out of his way to build my Classic 45 awhile back when there was a minor screw up from where I bought it from. He didn't even have to do it, but he did. Truly a class act that cares about his customers.

    Hey Jack B. This is Keith whom you met at Indoor Storm a couple Saterdays ago. It was a pleasure meeting you. I saw a photo of the pedal board work you did for Brad Whitford on Steelbender.com. Pretty cool stuf. Brad must really be into hot rods and racing. I thought I noticed an insignia about racing on the board. I can't wait to try out a Briggs guitar. Everybody who has one can't put em down to play anything else. I would love to own a Germino; however, I like getting my gain from preamp overdrive. I'm never in a situation where I can cut an amp up loud enough to clip power tubes. I will tell you that I never thought I would like having to use pedals for gain until I got an OCD pedal. I've noticed a bunch of players using both the AC and RC boosters together. That will make a clean amp shine for sure. I've heard tone of folks state that Germinos actually sound beter than the old Marshalls they are modled after.

    I've been fortunate enough to have a few phone conversations with Greg, a very cool guy.
