Hey guys -
I took that early sixties Fender Showman head to the shop back on the 5th and left it with the amp guy. He has a good reputation and I like the guys at the shop but it's now the 24th and I have no solid estimate for repairs.
I've called 3 times. Each time I call, the conversation ends up being a vague version of "I'll call you back." He's told me that the filter caps (power side) are seeping and should be replaced. We're not sure of tubes... last time I checked (a week ago) he hadn't even fired the thing up or checked the tubes.
Am I being impatient? This is the first time I've had an amp looked at. On guitars, I know what to expect.
I dont think you are and I would at least expect some real info and answers by now.
