26 Ric12string 2 years ago Shouldn't our favorite guitar company help us out with solving these issues for us? I called Mark Baier about my popping tremolo and he recommended that I ship my amp back to him. When I suggested that that could be pretty expensive what with the amp's weight, he suggested that I take the amp head out of the cabinet and ship just that to him. Right. Just what I should be doing -- taking my amp apart. With my luck, I would find some cap that had not been discharged and light myself up like a holiday tree. (See what I did there? Ha ha.)I would love to see Gretsch/FMIC take care of getting these fixed for us under warranty because they are otherwise simply tremendous amplifiers.
