Thanks....but I don't expect I will need anymore work on my bass for quite a while now unless it gets dropped from a great height.
My post was a reply to the previous poster and was not meant to be any kind of a defence against the beefs you have.
Heinl's has built up a pretty good reputation since the company began and I am glad to see they are maintaining it.
I don't want to resurrect your long standing issue with your bow....but I think Ric Heinl has done a great job since he took over. He's very approachable and reasonable to deal with. If you did not have a chat with him about your bow problem you may have missed a great opportunity to resolve things.
