Hello, I've only dealt with a couple of luthiers in my life, not sure what to do. Last year I had a new bridge and sound post put on, a little fingerboard work, was a luthier in Mass. He did a good job, I was happy when I left. But I think the bass can sound better than it does, though I'm not sure how. Could be as simple as sound post placement or something that's much more work. Here's the deal. The E string booms, rings out, growls nicely, the Bb and C on that string are great. The Bb and C, D etc on the A string sound dead, muted, the pitch isn't really strong like it is on the E string. The D and G strings are mostly O.K., though I feel if I can open up the A string the rest might follow. So, do I take it back to the first guy? I could find another luthier in Mass., maybe another set of eyes and ears would help, or I can drive down to Conn. for that "legendary" setup I've heard so much about. Any advice/input you folks might have would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!
