Looking for a local luthier in NJ/NY
I ordered some sub-contra strings from Garry Goodman recently and had plans to put them on my Magen Dovid bass. It has a custom Honduran mahogany body, padouk/ebony Jazz Bass neck from Warmoth with stainless steel frets, and Villex pickups. My regular luthier in Harriman, NY was having some issues so I was trying to find someone else who could do what I was looking for. I mainly just need someone to widen the nut and make the proper neck adjustments, but I will probably also have them install an Audere preamp and shield the preamp with copper foil (I might do that myself though). If anyone could recommend someone in NJ or NY I would greatly appreciate it since I don't really know anyone else around here aside from my guy up in Harriman. If I was going to ship the bass to someone it would probably only be worth it if they were going to make a custom case for it and so far I'm fine without having a case.
