    If I purchase this 5-string I have my eyes on, I will need a new nut for EADGC and a HipShot Xtender on the E. I want the job to be done right.

    Does anyone know a repairman/woman in the Western New York area (New York State, not city)??

    Thanks in advance,
    Joe

    I know of some fairly good places in Rochester. How far from here do you live?

    Airport Music had a great repair guy who i used to go to befroe doing things myself. Reasonable prices. The catch is he comes in like every monday and then works on stuff so you would need a week without your baby for it to get done...

    $40 to $50 for a complete setup and stuff like that.

    with my floyd rose guitar, he added more springs, lowered my action to it played itself basically and got that floyd rose to be straight as an arrow. He also did a complete adjustment of my Warwick thumb 5 string and got it set up nicely truss rod, intonation and string height to my specs. Good guy.
