    Trying to help out a buddy. He has a double bass that he has worn some grooves into the board to the point where he's getting some ugly buzz. Needs a shaving, perhaps an epoxy topcoat. This is his only DB, so turnaround is very important. He's also a working musician, so price is also very important. Can anyone help out with some DC area/suburbs recommendations? Thanks!

    It's not DC, but Phil Jacoby is in Baltimore.

    Philtone Guitars is his shop.

    He's the best & answers his emails quickly.

    Danny Booth may be able to help. He's a musician and a bass man who happens to work on basses and he's in Alexandria, VA.

    Didn't notice you were in the Double Bass side of the board, didja? Even when the original post said "He has a double bass..."
