So my local GC now does repair work. Normally I'd be cautious about this, but when I found out which GC employee does it, I felt comfortable enough to take my basses in. Q: "Why not do it yourself?" A: Don't have the time, or tools in some cases. First up, my Warwick Streamer Pro has dirty pots and the soldering joints on the jack have broken. Take it in, sign a claim ticket and return later that afternoon. I notice the claim ticket has declared value of $600 ...okay it isn't a rare Dolphin or Thumb but I never gave a declared value and if I did, I'd place it higher than that. Later on my USA defretted J bass needs an action job. Take it and this time the claim check says declared value $200 Really? A USA jazz bass for $200? Does defretting a J bass really kill the value that much? Who and how does GC come up with these values?
