    Hi Guys...

    I've got a small simple problem with my amp - Kingsley ToneBaron - and I'm not qualified to fix it. I talked to Simon on the phone, but I'm not good with wires, etc.

    He told me he could easily talk a qualified tech through fixing a simple issue with my line out jack and/or pot.

    I'm in Huntington Beach, so any local recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm actually going to sell the amp - I'm moving to Costa Rica - so I want this little problem resolved before I list it.

    Thanks!

    He's not in the OC, but Blackie Pagano at Tubesville in downtown LA has always done excellent work for me. He's a great guy too! www.tubesville.com 213 621-9901

    There's a guy in the guitar shop on Pacific Hwy in Laguna Beach who's good.

    Yeah, he worked on my Allen Old Flame and it sounds better than ever. I believe his name is Mark and he works on Thursdays and Saturdays at The Guitar Shoppe. (You can drop the amp off at anytime. )BTW He is a great player too.

    I work with Kevin Nelson in Fountain Valley/Garden Grove area.

    Fender, Dumble, Marshall...He's my main guy after dealing with some other disappointments in the LA/OC region.

    I don't have his number off hand but PM me and I'll get it to you.
