I recently took my American deluxe active Fender 5er to a guitar repair shop in Arlington Tx, to have a badass bridge installed. It took over 2 weeks for bridge install and setup. When I picked it up the finish was badly damaged when the tech used the stock Fender holes and discovered that intonation could not be done in stock position. He then re-mounted the bridge further back, which left an impression in the wood from the first mounting along with numerous scratches on surrounding area. Be warned, always use masking tape around area to be worked on , especially on black basses. Along with numerous scratches, the strings do not have a straight pull from the bridge. Not only did he de-value my bass, he put grooves on the bridge saddles that did'nt allow a straight pull on the strings. Should I let it go, and never go back,or report him to better business bureau to warn other players? He charged me 3 1/2 hours labor. I'm pissed. Anyone have any like experiences?
