Post Keeley Electronics totally destroyed by fire
This is very sad!

"In Rob's office he had Pedals signed by every star he has ever made anything for. He had a couple dozen vintage and high end guitars as well as dozens of vintage and high end amps. He had boxes full of Old Fuzz Faces he had been buying. Literally Rob has hundreds of thousands of $$$ of his collection and life in that room.
"Im sure his business will recover and get everything straightened out but there was things in his office that can't be replaced.
Rob saw his buisiness buring to the ground and stayed composed the whole time."

Please send healing thoughts & stuff their way... these are tough times. Not just financially. That guy apparently lost a lot of his collectibles which means stuff he had memories tied to... sigh.

I wish him and his employees the best and hope they can get the buisness up and running as soon as possible.

this is probably one of the worst things that could happen to anyone, when your house or your office that stands for what you've done with your life burns down, just horrible.

That sucks. It would be funny (not funny ha ha) if it was caused by faulty wiring.

That is so awesome of you, phallictractor.

Keeley is said to have another facility, so, they technically could move everything they can salvage to that place, but it may take some time to rebuild.

It's so unfortunate that this happened to them, in these tough times.

They have a smaller place. Rob said they should be up and running in about 2 months or so.
