I have a new style pre-fender SWR SM-900 amp. 1 1/2 months ago I took it to a authurized Fender/SWR repair center to find out why my volume would drop out then become load again while playing. After 2 weeks not able to fix the amp due to backup in the shop they finally got to work on it and could not find what was wrong. The sent for some parts but that did not help. Then SWR sent them a new circuit board but the post boards do not work with pre-fender components (Go figure). The tech at SWR told the repair person to try somethings that might work but still could not get it fixed. I ask the repair guy if he could not fix it what can SWR do to help me? Well my answer was...nothing since this amp was built before the buyout. So basicly I would be screwed out of a $1500 amp that was in excellent condition with little scratches. My question to anyone here is... Should I call SWR/Fender and bitch about not helping me out since I have been a loyal Highend SWR user for over 7 years now and have bought many of their products? (non since the fender buyout) Should they help me since this problem was rare? Any suggestions would be great, Thanks.
