    Who make custom preamps?

    I want to duplicate the BEC IIe I have in my old fortress MM
    and I cant get a preamp to get it.
    I have tried everything.

    I also want the board taken out of my crappy little zoom 505 and put into a real shell with better parts
    I.E a custom footboard too.

    Whom do I call?

    Custom preamp, Mike Pope does them, dunno if he's into replicating, think he's more into his own designs with modifications to suit customers needs. It'd be worth asking though. Otherwise, I dunno.

    2.) hes charging $400 for a pre
    3.) hes swamped with fodera and the 4 band ore orders I doubt Id even get it in a few years.

    Any one else know?
    I was getting a prototype made for an invention of mine and there was a place in NY that did custom effects for guitar maybe I'll look them up
    I think it was called Finger Lakes Eng.?

    Any other suggestions?
