    Hello all, I am looking for a super reliable upright luthier here in New Orleans to reinstall steel E and A strings on my Palatino. When I started, I had a set of Weedwacker pros intalled at Buchanan music in Phoenix. They did a great job, but it required filing the bridge and nut to fit the HUGE E string. Im over it, and now realize I should have left the E & A steel. So reinstalling would require building the bridge slot back up (i've been told superglue and rosewood dust would do it). But not being a professional lutier, I dont want to ruin my only upright. I am trying to buy a Kay Swingmaster as a recording and professional show bass, and keep the palatino as a street bass. If anyone knows of a particular luthier in the New Orleans area, please let me know! Thanks bassTalk!

    Sal Giardinia. I've always had good work done. Got a Kay M-1, and an extension on my German done by him.
