    I am looking to modify one of my basses, but I don’t have enough skill or time. The main difficulty will be a new fretboard and some cut and paste work. I was wondering if anyone knows of someone In the GTA?
     
  2. @Turnaround is there. Don’t know if he takes on that kind of work or not. I’m sure it will be high quality if he does.

    Not sure how close to Toronto, but Freddy Gabrsek is a phenominal luthier up in that general area. His work is absolutely top notch. Super nice guy, too.

    The 12th. Fret still has a great reputation. They also have a reputation for being very, very slow. They have been about the top rated repair/custom shop for 30 something years.
    I believe George Furlanetto is still doing outside work, but don't quote me.
