Great Luthiers/Techs in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada??

  1. Anyone know of any really good techs for fret leveling in Edmonton?

    I do my own set ups but have not taken on fret work as yet. I tried two guys in the last year. One was a near-disaster; one was much better, but still did not do a complete job.

    Anyone in the Edmonton area with positive experiences?

    Lilo's, on Whyte Ave. It's the only place in the entire province I'd trust my vintage and otherwise "special-to-me" gear. I brought them my 1953 Gibson GA-40T amp when I was rolling thru town. They did a fantastic job and were all such a pleasure to chat with.

  3. I get the feeling that Edmonton is a little scarce on luthier talent. Not sure if that's accurate, but so far it has been my experience.

    I'll give Lillo's a call. Sure hope they surprise me - in a good way.

    Here's a link to their site. They don't do internet 2017, apparently. They do have a newsletter that's worth subscribing to, though.

  5. Thanks for the link. I see it says "in-house" repairs. Could be good. I'll call them tomorrow as they are closed Mondays, so it says.

    Anyone have any updates for great EDMONTON luthiers?
    Seems L&M south location may have good one now... I saw 2 of his own brand Basses - finishing & quality seemed great

    but I’d like to find one without the L&M markup ...
