    I'm planning on having some minor setup work done on my bass in the near future. Change to a compensated tailpiece, bridge trim, and check soundpost position. Does anyone know of a reputable luthier in the Fort Myers, FL area?

    Thanks for any help you can provide

    Me for 1 week around Christmas when I visit my inlaws in Punta Gorda. ;)

    If Tampa is not too far, there is John Importuno. He is a very talented violinmaker and used to be a bassist.

    Hi Eric,

    Glad to see that your inlaws still have a place in Punta Gorda. Last year at this time, it looked like New Orleans does now. I'm hoping to get the work done as soon as Mike Pecanic gets that new tailpiece to me. I got a couple of names off of Bob Gollihurs directory in Miami (about 100 miles away), Tampa is about twice that distance. Thanks for the help.
