    Hey TBers,

    I've got an ESP 6 string that needs some professional setup work done to it. I think it needs fret leveling and truss rod adjustments. I'd prefer to find someone in the nw burbs, but really want to find someone who will do exactly what is needed for this bass to play exactly the way I want it to play.

    Thanks for any recommendations!

    Google "Music Gallery" in Highland Park, IL and click where it says "plek". It is a state of the art machine that can set up an instrument, level frets, and cut nuts to exacting specs. I have not had a bass done yet (soon) but did have an electric guitar treated and it is the schiznit. Expensive compared to standard setup though, probably about $200-250, but worth every penny imo if you love your instrument and plan on keeping it a long time.
