Yeah, now I'm worried because I just dropped off my bass there(unfortunately, it's the closest authorized Fender repair center...
). At least my issue isn't neck related.
The only reason I go in there is because I do have a couple of buddies that might still work there...it's not the manager, though. They almost never have any cool bass stuff.
Really sorry to hear about your issues. If I find any good luthiers in town, I'll let you know.
