Does anyone know if KP Electronics still exist? The number is disconnected. Failing that, any ideas where I could get a Fender amp repaired on the shore?

Cheers.

Yeah he is, I called and spoke to him a couple of weeks ago.
Don't call after 2:30pm tho as he's normally out.

Hi Steve, tried calling Keith on the number you posted left a couple of messages but still no reply. Do you know if he’s still in business, can you recommend any one else to service/repair bass amp (Genz Benz shuttle 6.0 & cab)

Cheers!

Hi all. I'm very sad to say Keith (KP) has had some serious health issues in recent times and they have recently come to a head.

I'd suggest you call the Rockshop (who used to be the Genz Benz agent). That would be my first stop as they may have spare parts.

For those that know KP, I believe that he is currently in the care of North Shore Hospice and his family so now would be a great time to send any messages of support.

That is indeed sad news... thanks for letting us know. :(
I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with KP and have a great respect for him.
He was a great man and an excellent guitarist known by many.
He will be sorely missed.
Blessings and condolences to the Prictor family.
