They can be friends of yours, or people who fix your gear when it breaks down or anything.
I'm just keen to see how many decent techs people know of.
I also read somewhere today that there aren't many amp techs left either.

There's a damn amazing tech in my town called Eugene. Works at a place called Direct Imports. They import all the Digitech, Jackson, Fender, Gretsch, Tascam, SKB, SWR and EVH head and cabs to New Zealand.

I'm sure there's actually nothing he can't really fix. He's a damn amazing player (guitar) as well. +he's a great guy to talk to. kind and he always shares his knowledge with you.

So who do you people know?

here in seattle there is a guy named T.G. Warren. he's a local legend to musicians. i have only gone to him once when my Peavey Classic 30. that guy is AMAZING. he's like at least 65 years old but he's really down to earth and he really knows his ****. ironically when i was searching for a tech and i chose him, i found that he lived a few blocks away from me

Phil Petillo. he's a luthier here in Jersey that has worked/built guitars for everyone from Elvis to Bon Jovi to Meatloaf to the guy from Down. he has over 1000 patents in everything from special triangle frets, his own copper wound strings, fiber optics amp technology and soooo much more. The guy has his doctorate (I'm pretty sure) and like 3 different degrees. He made an eagle shaped bass guitar out of an old staircase from his house. His son is awesome as well.

I always just head on down to Capital City Guitars in Olympia, WA, they have great and knowledgeable staff, always very helpful and willing to go the extra mile for you. They sell a lot of odd-ball brands and off-brand amps, it's a great store.

The luthiers and techs there are awesome, I believe they have two or three of those boys. Custom painting, set up, technical stuff, whatever you need. Thankfully, I've never had to do business with them yet, I've only talked to them.

There's also Music 6000 which is just as good, and they're all great guys, if you're nice enough they will lower their prices more then MF, and if you know them, even more!
Player, give me some brew an I might just chill
but I'm the type that like to light another joint like Cypress Hill

In my area, i thankfully have three really good guys. For setups, and repairs on electric instruments is a guy named B Bennet, for amp repairs and mods you have Brian Doub, and for acoustic builds/repairs/mods you have Ward Elliot.
