    Hi all -

    I usually use Jim Mouradian in Winchester for all my work - he is a god among techs - but sometimes the long wait times, expense, travel, etc. are not convenient.

    Who would you recommend for high-quality setups?

    Bumping this thread because I am looking to get a good setup done near central Mass or wherever I need to go within 90 minutes drive. That could include RI, CT, and NH.

    I found through a search that Jim Mouradian was a popular recommendation, but he passed away Jan. 2017.

    Beckwith Strings is pretty close to me. Anybody have any experience with them? Beckwith Strings - Handcrafted Guitars and Stringed Instrument Repair

    I plan on buying the feeler gauges and capo to do my own, but would like a good reference point by having a pro do it first.

    I'd happily recommend Richard Stanley, in Concord, MA for any work needed. He is a remarkable person, and his work is of the very highest caliber.

    Be prepared to pay for it though.

    I'll post more on stuff he has done for me a bit later, busy at the moment.
