    Trying to help out a buddy. He has a double bass that he has worn some grooves into the board to the point where he's getting some ugly buzz. Needs a shaving, perhaps an epoxy topcoat. This is his only DB, so turnaround is very important. He's also a working musician, so price is also very important. Can anyone help out with some DC area/suburbs recommendations? Thanks!

    I have none to disclose at this time.
    It's not DC, but Phil Jacoby is in Baltimore.

    Philtone Guitars is his shop.

    He's the best & answers his emails quickly.

    Didn't notice you were in the Double Bass side of the board, didja? Even when the original post said "He has a double bass..."
