    In 2013, I had heard about a guy making hand-made Fender-style amps as a company called Tube-Tone:
    http://tube-tone.com
    I tried to buy one, but he was apparently going through a hard time and couldn't get orders completed in a reasonable amount of time (multiple people were complaining about it, including on this forum). I put in a down payment and still hadn't received my amp after about 6 months. I ended up calling my credit card company, who called him (with me on the line) and the credit card company decided to give me a refund, as they basically considered it fraud what he had done (taking my money and not delivering a product), and I had also ended up buying a Fender amp by then.

    It looks like he's still around though, as his web site is still operating. I'm curious if anyone has bought one of his amps? They seemed interesting.

    Interesting and very possibly fictitious.

    It seemed so at the time. But then it is weird that the web site is still around after all this time.

    Good for you getting your money back, good of you to put the word out about him.
