Willie, Thank you!



Why do I keep fixing things that work?

Just like Jon, Willie has been an amazing talent whom will reach across the aisle and without any expectations, give a fella information and follow through with that person, to help you gain a result/understanding as to your amp and/or a circuit that you are exploring.
I appreciate your help over the last few years that you've been working and sharing your experience with myself and others here!
Many 'Thanks' from myself and I'm sure from many others here!
Gonna miss your presence here! Carry on and enjoy your retirement, Woody

This is in his profile:

Comments: It's been fun...I'm not dead, not dying, not even sick, just gone. It's been an honor helping and advising over the years...just time to go away. Thanks for the flowers...;) willie

Look like he’s ok- just moving on. He will be missed.

That’s a relief, thanks for letting us know, I’d forgotten there was such a thing as a profile page. Best wishes, willie!

Wow, hate to hear this. He has been a major player on this forum and will be greatly missed. I am sure he has his reasons but it will not be the same around here without him.

If irritation occurs

discontinue use.

For those of you that have never met willie, I am here to say he is as generous in person as he was here with his experience and information.

To infinity and beyond!

Ask me how I know!?

Truly a great guy! He recently repaired an amp for me, without even having any schematics. And barely charged me anything.
I still keep in touch with him, and will continue to do so.
He can sing and play well, also! Ask me how I know!?

Can't say thank you enough for all the top notch repairs and making all my amps and guitars sound great!

Also, a big Thanks for the insightful conversations over the years.
