    I am posting this here to get more eyes on a thread that I started in "Luthier corner"

    Reason I am posting this here is because I am looking for a person to help my setup my basses. I want a person who plays the bass and not just a technician. Thanks! Sorry for the re-post but at this point I am desperate for a talented guy, not a guitar center tech that I have to wait three weeks for a mediocre job!

    +1 I can always tell the difference in my setups when they're done by bass player techs than others

    Brian Lewis of Lewis Bass and Guitar is awesome. Been my tech for 2 years and nobody - and I mean NOBODY - else touches my basses.

    He's in Chandler, near the 101 and Ray Rd. (602) 680-8084. Tell him I sent ya!

    No sweat! He just texted me a "thank you for the referral". Brian is also a Roberto-Venn trained builder. I've seen some of his customs, and they're killer too.

    Good luck, bro!

    PM me, I have my hand tools out here so I can't built for you... without it taking a really really long time. I will do setups. I live in Mesa.

    George, what a great guy. Took him three basses.... Very cool guy... He got so excited about working on my basses. Hahahaha like a kid in a candy store. I am sure he will set them up as his own. I am excited! Thanks again for the suggestion!!!!

    He's so meticulous, it's funny. He did the epoxy on my fretless neck.
