Good instrument repair in North Carolina?

    I'll be moving to Durham, NC in a week or so, and seeing as I'm completely useless at DIY repair (especially with electronics) I was wondering: Anyone in the Raleigh-Durham area know of a good shop to get service and repair? My jazz bass is currently non-functioning as the pickups shorted and one pot failed. There's a guitar center there, I know, but I'd rather take my instruments to a local shop.

    (Not sure where to post this, so I figured "miscellaneous" would be a good place to put the post)

    I'm sure there are others but I have personal experience and can highly recommend him.

    +1 to Harry's, great service. Ive never had them do repair work, but i always appreciate a business that isn't constantly trying to upsell me like GC, and to a lesser extent, Sam Ash
