Re: Torres Engineering
Well the pickups arrived on Saturday.Still got no response to my last email.Before I actually placed the order I told them I needed the mounting rings.I was told they could get them,I told them I was putting the pickups in a guitar that was not made for these pickups so without the rings I couldnt use the pickups.They came with no rings.I couldnt agree with you guys more about how anybody can make a mistake and the real test is how you make it right afterwards.Well Torres didnt make it "right"so I will have to make it right on my end,so the guy agreed to bring the ax back to me when I get the rings from All Parts and I get to eat most of the cost.Lesson learned.I will never start a repair until I actually have the parts in hand,and I will never order from these guys again.I guess the fact that Dan is not actively involved makes all the difference in the world.Hope he fully recovers from whatever health issues he has and takes control of his bussiness soon.

As I understand it, he simply retired.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

That may well be the case at this point. When I went in there a little over a year ago Dan was on staff as a part time technical advisor and planned to remain in that position for awhile. But it's hard to predict how things will go.
