I have been trying to find a good luthier for the past year. I moved from New Orleans to Warner Robins, right after the storm. I know of only one guy here that can work on necks. Only problem is, my bass would be the first bass he ever worked on. He mainly does guitars. I know I could send it to Atlanta, among other places, but I'm trying to avoid shipping. If you live in the area, like within an hours drive, of Warner Robins, or Macon, and you know of someone that's very good with bass guitars, Please drop me a PM, or an email! I would so greatly appreciate it.
