    Howdy Atlanta TBers. I'm looking for a good luthier in town to work on my basses.

    I live in the Alpharetta/Roswell area. Can any of you recommend a good luthier that's located close to my area of town?

    Thanks.

    My guitar player, Jake, is the luthier at the Marietta Guitar Center. He does good work. He did a great fret job on my 6 string ABG.

    I have a new MIM Fender 5 that is in desperate need of a setup. I think the nut is gonna need a little work done to it so the strings don't sit up as much. Right now the action on this thing is ridiculously high.

    Most of the work I ever need involves setups. Although I know how to do that stuff I don't have the time or the patience to do as good a job as someone who does this on a regular basis.

    So basically I don't need anything fancy, just someone who can take care of the "basics" doing quality work for a fair price.
