They told me that someone had butchered the inside of the amp with bad and dangerous repair work especially to the power supply portion. They told me that there was a Boston Guitar Works sticker on the inside of the amp chassis.
I then contacted Berkowitz and confronted him on his shoddy repair work and his pretending that he didn't know what I was talking about. After a couple weeks of dealing with his ridiculous emails trying to avoid responsibility I told him I was going to sue him. He then agreed to send a check for the full repair amount which he never did. His agreement to pay and the day he was going to send it was also through email.
Not only a thief but a stupid one.
This guy is the typical dirty businessman. In addition to the above, He lists reissue products as vintage.
For instance on his website, He has the reissue DOD 250 overdrive listed under "vintage effects" for a price of $125.00.
That DOD reissue pedal costs $39.95 to $49.95 from any reputable music shop and a real vintage one is in the $250.00 range.
So you're supposed to think you're getting the real thing at a great deal because what bozo would be trying to get 125.00 + shipping for a common 40.00 + free shipping item?
Well there is a bozo that goes by the name of Heath Berkowitz who is trying to do just that.
Steer clear of this shop. Musician's friend, Sam Ash and Guitar Center are the legitimate places to go and have better prices. If your looking for vintage stuff, Ebay is the way to go. And even if you have to repair your vintage gear at least you didn't have some untalented guitar player claiming to be "AMERICA'S PREMIER GUITAR BOUTIQUE * Offering The Highest Quality GUITARS, AMPS, and FX" lying to you.
p.s. Yes I will be taking him to court to recoup the repair costs.
